Cock Sparrer’s 8th and Final LP Hand On Heart Available Worldwide Today!

At long last, today is the day we have all been waiting for: release day for the new album by the legendary Cock Sparrer!

Hand on Heart, the band’s eighth and final studio album, is available in record stores worldwide today, and is available to stream and download on all major platforms!  The release of this record is nothing short of a major event for the band’s countless fans all across the globe!

The 10 tracks that comprise Hand on Heart will thrill the Cock Sparrer faithful with their iconic, anthemic sound, but the band still has surprises and new tricks up their sleeves, including a string arrangement by Simon Dobson (Bring Me The Horizon / Mike Oldfield) that lends a touch of class to the affair. With production overseen by James Bragg & guitarist Daryl Smith, as well as mastering by Grammy-winning engineer Kevin Tuffy, the lads sound better than ever, and for once, more of the budget went into the studio than down the pub!

It is the honor and privilege of Pirates Press Records to team with Cock Sparrer to make Hand On Heart available on classic 12” 180 gram black vinyl, 12” 180 gram Milky Clear vinyl, 12” picture disc with alternative artwork, digipak compact disc, and limited edition cassette! It’s available from our webstore as well as everywhere fine records are sold! Grab your copy on your favorite format(s), while they last!

For those in the UK, the band will be celebrating the record’s release this weekend with a record release show on Saturday night at the O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London, as well as next Saturday at the O2 Academy in Glasgow!

And don’t forget, the album’s third single, “Here We Stand” is available NOW for pre-order on 7” Blood Red Vinyl with Black Splatter from the PPR webstore, backed by the vinyl-exclusive B-side “We’re Alright Now!” The 7” will be available everywhere April 26th!
