James Hart spent nearly a decade recording and touring as the frontman of Orange County band EIGHTEEN VISIONS. After the group's breakup in early 2007, Hart quickly redirected his creative energy and honed his talent into a singular vision that fully represents his individual skill and ideas. Never losing momentum, Hart landed a label deal with Island/Def Jam and began working almost immediately with songwriter Zac Maloy on what would become BURN HALO's debut.

After the album was completed, in early 2008, Island elected not to release BURN HALO's debut, leaving Hart with the tough job of finding a new home for his project. Nothing felt quite right, though, so BURN HALO's manager Bret Bair formed his own label Rawkhead Rekords through Warner Music Group to release the record. Hart spent much of 2008 finalizing the lineup of his touring band — which he hopes will help write and record BURN HALO's successive albums — with Aaron Boheler on bass, Joey Cunha on lead guitar, and Allen Wheeler on rhythm guitar. All that's left is to show it all to the world. "I think this is a real statement album for me," Hart says. "Anyone who is familiar with me and my past is going to be able to get this record. They're going to understand why I made this record and that this is the record I've been wanting to make."

BURN HALO recently announced the addition of drummer Timmy Russell (BEAUTIFUL CREATURES, BANG TANGO) to the group's ranks.
