"During the making of this album, I think we all felt a little bit like astronauts going off to space for the first time," says Dave. "We set out on a journey not knowing what we would come back with, or if we'd even make it back. Somewhere along the way, the pieces began to fall into place. There's just no point in doing the same album over and over again just because it works. When it all comes down to it, you want to make the songs shine to their full potential. If that includes bending the rules of the genre or crossing paths into unknown territory, so be it."
"The title Into The Great Unknown suits the album for many reasons," says Crash. "The plan, to focus entirely on the song writing and to not do a live show until the new album is out, was a new thing for us. We had never done anything like it, how do you 'not' play live for two years? We had been doing live shows since we were kids.
''Another leap into the great unknown is the music itself, with no limits and elements never before seen in H.E.A.T. The album cover is once again created by Russian artist Vitaly S. Alexius, and is inspired by the mystical space, the greatest unknown known to man."
