Burn Halo was originally set to be the solo project of Former Eighteen Visions Frontman, James Hart. Hart began writting the album with Zac Maloy after the break up of 18v in 2007 and it features guest musicians such as Synyster Gates, Daniel Adair, Chris Chaney, Neal Tiemann, and Keith Barney. As the album developed, Hart made the decision to market the music as a band, stating that he did not feel he was ready for a career as a solo artist. However, once the album was complete, Island records decided not to move forward with Hart as an artist, and he was left with a finished record and no label to release it on. Later, Hart’s Manager, Bret Bair, formed a label of his own (Rawkhead Rekords) through the Warner Music Group, and the self-titled debut album of Burn Halo was released on March 31, 2009. Before the record was released, however, Hart was still in need of a solid lineup to tour with in support of the album. He recruited Aaron Baylor on bass, Joey Roxx and Allen Wheeler on guitar, and Ryan Folden on the Drums (Folden has since left the band and has been replaced by Timmy Russell) Now a solidified band, Burn Halo played their first show ever in Baltimore, Maryland with Avenged Sevenfold. Since, they have toured with bands such as Papa Roach, Buckcherry, Escape the Fate, Black Tide, and Korn. The album’s first single “Dirty Little Girl” Peaked #19 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock charts and the video for the song premiered on MTV on February 25, 2009. Burn Halo’s sound is obviously very different than that of Eighteen Visions, and Hart states that this was intentional, claiming that he didn’t want to make another 18v album, he wanted to make a record that he could call his own.
