Reunited Original Lineup Of HEIR APPARENT To Perform Entire ‘Graceful Inheritance’ Album

After hibernating over the last few years, the original lineup of Seattle metal legends HEIR APPARENTDerek Peace (bass), Ray Schwartz (drums), Paul Davidson (lead vocals) and Terry Gorle (guitar, vocals) — has reunited and will perform its classic album “Graceful Inheritance” (1986) in its entirety at the Metal Assault II festival in Würzburg, Germany on January 14, 2012. Additional dates in Greece and Cyprus are also planned. These will mark HEIR APPARENT‘s first European shows with the original lineup (including Davidson) in over two decades.

When founding member and band leader Terry Gorle was asked what brought the reunion on, he responded, “Well, I received several offers for European dates, and I’ve been talking to the guys for a while now, and it just felt like a natural thing at this point. They are all committed to rehearsing and making this happen and it’s a great opportunity for the fans to hear the album ‘Graceful Inheritance’ live, with all the original members. We have even been working on new material as well and hopefully will have it out by spring of 2012.”
