7HY - Stories We Tell ( CD version 2017)


  
Release: 3 March 2017
7HY (Seven Hard Years) are excited to announce that they will release the CD version of Stories We Tell on March 3rd 2017. The album is a tour-de-force of hard rock/traditional metal that features Alan Kelly of Shy and Shawn Pelata of Final Sign.

About 7HY:

7hy is a band with a sterling pedigree and unchallengeable history in rock. The band’s accomplishments speak for themselves and need not be recalled here.
Seven Hard Years, or 7HY if you like, is the brainchild of ex-Shy drummer Alan Kelly and while he draws upon his experience from being a part of Shy and a part of the now legendary 80s music industry, 7HY is no mere Shy clone. 
Expanding upon his capabilities as a songwriter (Kelly penned lyrics for several Shy classics), Alan took to the guitar and keyboards and set about finding his own path. Once he had songs in hand, he made contact with then Line of Fire vocalist Shawn Pelata to set about making the debut 7HY album.
Alan handled the bulk of the instrumentation himself while calling upon Dave Martin (ex-Marshall Law) for some guitar solos and his former Shy bandmate Roy Davis for some additional bass work. Martin Walls and Alan's wife Claire also contributed bass tracks while Alan's son Eliot contributed solo work as well. The resulting album, 'No Place in Heaven' released on Davis' Lynchburg Music in 2014, was well-received across the globe amongst rock fans and established the act as a melodic force to be reckoned with.
Alan was not about to stop there. Once release details were sorted for the debut, Alan and Shawn set about preparing the next release. Armed with 12 brand new songs, the duo wanted to do all they could to top the debut. It appears they have risen to the challenge. 'Stories We Tell' is packed with more energy, more melody, more intense performances, and will no doubt squelch the sophomore jinx.
Songs such as "Break the Spell", "Don't Believe a Word", "Driving Me Crazy" and "I'll Survive" showcase the palpable chemistry between Alan's musical muse and Shawn's vocal prowess. The vocals carry the melodies and hooks with intensity and swagger. 'Stories We Tell' is certainly a jewel in the crown for these two veteran artists. 
Once again featuring contributions from Dave Martin and Eliot Kelly, as well as Calle Hammer (Houston), Pete Fry (Farcry) and Danny Beardsley (Emperor Chung), and his brother Paul Kelly, the guitar solos on 'Stories We Tell' are scorching! Bass duties were split between Alan himself, Martin Walls, and Dave Martin's Marshall Law cohort Tom Dwyer.
Packed with undeniable hooks, deft solos, massive vocal melodies and a stunning hard rock punch, 'Stories We Tell' will no doubt please rock fans across the world and further solidify Alan's songwriting ability amongst his peers.
