On more music related greatness, worriedaboutsatan have announced plans to release a limited edition single. Self-released, it’s called ‘Heart Monitor’ and was mastered by friend and imminent tour partner Tom Morris of Her Name is Calla. The track will be available as a highly limited CD single. The CD features exclusive artwork and stem files for fans, aspiring and established musicians alike to create their own remixes of the title track, and is limited to just 100 copies.
The single is available to stream now at www.myspace/worriedaboutsatan, and will be launched officially midway through a UK tour with Her Name is Calla, with a special homecoming show at Leeds Holy Trinity Church on Monday 29th March 2010.
