Hand On Heart - 'For You'

  • 2 min read

An Italian hard rock band formed in Tuscany a few years ago, Hand On Heart recently delivered their standout debut single 'Roses', and now, they're back with a bold and equally impressive new cut, simply titled 'For You'.

A talented fourpiece consisting of lead vocalist and keyboardist Gianluca Niccoli, bassist Alessandro Moschini (ex-G.L.A.S., ex-H.A.R.E.M.), guitarist Christian Evans and drummer Sergio Leonetti (ex-G.L.A.S.), the band took their name from the timeless Queensrÿche song, as Moschini stated to Sleaze Roxx, “The name of the band is inspired by the Queensrÿche song 'Hand On Heart'. The song was also in our setlist that we played live.”

The band's debut single, 'Roses' landed as a searing slice of hard rock, and their follow-up release is just as impactful, capturing a classic '80s feel cut from the same vein as Guns N' Roses and Aerosmith. As well as being a strong single in its own right, 'For You' is another glimpse into the band's forthcoming debut album, a highly anticipated release that the band are currently recording.

Speaking previously with Sleaze Roxx, Moschini added, “The recording is going well. On Friday [July 7, 2023], we will finish the recording of the second track that we will put on Spotify next month. We have five tracks with bass and drums already done and four of them done with rhythm and lead guitars. We have to record three other songs. The album will contain eight tracks and an intro, so in total nine tracks. We plan to release it in two to three months maximum.”

Hand On Heart first formed the band in 2017 with Moschini and Niccoli, who were previously involved in an acoustic project named Coffee & Flowers. Drummer Sergio Leonetti, who they had played together with in the ’80s in another hard rock band called G.L.A.S. joined later, followed by guitarist Christian Evans. The band will be looking to release more music as the year continues.
