CELEBRATIONS FOR FIVE YEARS ANNIVERSARY
(created 09.02.2015)In 2010 SoulHealer from Finland released their first EP Dreamcatcher. This EP was sold out almost over night, and became a highly searched collectors item in the Metal Underground Scene. It’s 2015 now and SoulHealer are proud with what they have reached so far in the everchanging music business. Three full albums, a label deal with Pure Legend Records and more than a hundred live shows is not that bad for an underground band in that timespan, not forgetting the growing and loyal fanbase. Touring has concentrated mostly to their home country Finland with some very few and far exceptions. The main issue here are the expenses of such touring. That was the reason to start a crowdfunding campaing at Indiegogo. SoulHealer wants to celebrate their Five Years Anniversary with all fans. One of the perks in support for the campaign is a re-print of the long sold out Dreamcatcher T-Shirt. http://igg.me/at/SoulHealerTour2015/x/9537410 And this is only the start of the celebrations, there will be alot more coming this year. 2015 will be a SoulHealer Year! Sin Chee Clearly Anymore!

Pub 14.3.2015 Ii, Joku Paikallinen Pub 27.3.2015 Oulu, Hevimesta 28.3.2015 Joensuu, Marks w/ At the Border 17.4.2015 Kuusamo, Ravintola Veijo 18.4.2015 Rovaniemi, Grande Drummer Jani Nyman will have to sit out these gigs because of health issues. He will have to take time to recover and not play drums for the time being. Kai Vainionpää from Alpha Indigo will step in until Jani is back on track. SoulHealer would like to respect Jani’s privacy, so there will be no detailed info about his condition. SoulHealer have also started a Crowdfunding Campaign for touring plans outside their home country: The band says: “As you know, we have only played in Finland so far, with some very few exceptions. We also know that we have fans in the whole world. And of course we want to give them the experience of the magic at a SoulHealer show too. The main problem that it did not happen until now, is the that touring and travelling costs money and the budget for a band like us is tight. So we came up with the idea that our loyal fans could help us out of the dilemma. And we started this Crowdfunding Campaign to raise some money for touring outside of Finland. Just check it out.“ www.indiegogo.com/projects/soulhealer-tour-2015/x/9537410

(created 01.03.2013)This is the official press release from Pure Legend Records: SOULHEALER are five guys from Finland dedicated to Melodic Heavy Rock. Founded in 2009, they released their first EP "Dreamcatcher" in the summer of 2010. The first 300 pieces made sold out in 14 days.

SOULHEALER announces change behind the drums!
(created 22.02.2013)Short after SOULHEALER had finished the work on the upcoming album Timo Immonen came up with his announcement that he feels forced to quit his commitment as the active drummer of the band: “It was really hard to let something like this go, basically a dream of a lifetime. To play in a rock'n'roll band, gigging regularly, recording, and with such a great bunch of assholes hahaha! But what it comes down to is that I need to be able to spend more time with my family than I can see happening in the future with SOULHEALER as the pace is gradually picking up, more gigs lining up, and what started out as a hobby becoming more and more professional. All great things, that take more time, time away from family life. I sincerely wish the guys in SOULHEALER the best and that they have the strength and energy to continue on the path we started on together some three odd years ago. Go for it guys!" The band would like to thank Timo for being an important part of SOULHEALER behind the drum kit not only live but also on the ”Dreamcatcher” EP, the first full album ”The Kings Of Bullet Alley” and also on the upcoming cd. And Timo is right, the pace is picking up. So SOULHEALER did not waste any time finding a replacement. Teemu Kuosmanen phoned up his old friend Jani Nyman, as he knew he is a killer drummer. Being asked if he wants to join SOULHEALER as the new man, he didn’t have to think twice. Because of that we want to welcome Jani Nyman as the newest member in the SOULHEALER family. (He can be seen on the new band picture in the bio section on our website). Jani already had his first commitment at a video session for the first ever SOULHEALER promo video for a song from the new album. The band has uploaded a small “Behind The Scenes” clip.

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2013!
(created 01.01.2013)One year has passed again, and this was a really great one for SoulHealer. One highlight was for sure our first show in Germany at the warmup show of the Headbangers Open Air, where we had a blast. And we hope and promise to be back in Deutschland as soon as possible. It was also great to share the stage with our heroes from Zero Nine at Lankafest. And last but not least we signed a worldwide deal with Pure Legend Records, a sublabel of the german record label Pure Steel Records last summer, where we will release our coming album. And here we can tell you, that we have finished our studio work there last weekend. All songs are recorded, and now Janne Tolsa will take care of mixing and mastering everything at Note On – Studio. We are more than happy with our recording sessions and how everything turned out. And we think that we have produced a killer album, with some of the strongest SoulHealer songs ever We know almost all bands say this about their newest album, but this is the feeling we have at the moment, and we want to share it with you. Well, you will be able to make your own opinion pretty soon. We are looking forward for another great SoulHealer year 2013, and we hope you are doing too.
Heavy Christmas & Rockin' New Year
(created 22.12.2012)We wish all our fans, friends and supporters a heavy christmas and a rockin' new year!
SoulHealer have entered the studio!
(created 03.10.2012)For the next few weeks the studio of sound engineer Teemu Ojalehto in Kajaani will be the home of SoulHealer. In several sessions the band will record the follow up for their debut album “The Kings Of Bullet Alley”, which received almost only great reviews by the press, and also the fan reaction was more than positive. So the expectations for the next album are high, as it will be also the first release through Pure Legend Records, SoulHealer signed a worldwide deal with the German label in June 2012. But the band does not feel any pressure, as they are more than confident that the new song material is not only as strong as “The Kings Of Bullet Alley”, but maybe even stronger. A release date for the still unnamed album is not set yet, but you can expect it to be out in spring 2013.
SoulHealer announces Lineup change!
(created 29.08.2012)Teemu Aho is forced to quit his active commitment as bass player in SoulHealer for personal reasons. But he will continue to be a part of the family as webmaster and wherever his help is needed. Although the band was hit hard with this decision, they didn’t lose any time in looking for a replacement. Sami Mikkonen thought of his best old friend Pasi Laakkonen, who has a Garage Rock Band running with Alpha Indigo at the moment. Both already played together in some cover band projects some 10 years ago, and for the last time about 4 years ago. Pasi was invited for an audition, where he left no doubt that he his the right guy at the right place at the right time. So we welcome Pasi Laakkonen as the new bass player in SoulHealer. He will give his live debut already at the next show on 7th September at Bar Bäkkäri in Helsinki. Beside that SoulHealer are working hard on the follow up for their debut album “The Kings Of Bullet Alley”. The song writing process is going great, and as usual every new song will be tested in the live situation. So you should not be surprised to hear some new songs on any upcoming shows. Only tracks that work live will find their way on the next SoulHealer Album. And the band is confident to have it ready and finished for a release in spring 2013 through Pure Legend Records. Upcoming gigs 2012 7.9. Bar Bäkkäri, Helsinki 8.9. Back Room, Kotka 29.9. Rytmikellari, Raahe CANCELLED! 5.10. Janoinen Puuma, Iisalmi 23.11. Nosturin Alakerta, Helsinki 24.11. Lucky Monkeys, Lappeenranta 5.12. Balls, Kajaani

The Kings Of Bullet Alley - Special Edition
(created 08.05.2012)We are pleased to announce the re-release of "The Kings Of Bullet Alley" as a Special Edition with the full "Dreamcatcher" EP included. The release is due on June 1st through Inverse Records in Jewel Case complete with a 12 page booklet, all lyrics and new band pictures. Read all about it here in Finnish http://inverse.fi/wordpress/?p=279. For those of you challenged in the Finnish language, here is the English version: Young, Fresh& Hungry For Action! As a band SoulHealer might be young but they really have strong vision and urge to do things right. The band has managed to update the Classic 80's sound into modern times environment. Yet this is not a tribute thing but more about living today and not forgetting the legacy of classic era. For references think bands like Zero Nine, Tarot, the obvious Iron Maiden, Accept and Judas Priest, but also American side of classic things like Dokken, Lynch Mob,Ratt, Tesla. The band was established in Kajaani, Finland in 2009 and already in next year they released their first ep Dreamcatcher, which sold 300 copies in first 2 weeks. A year later and after their first gig abroad (in Russia), their first album The Kings of Bullet Alley was released on limited edition digipack on their own label. In order to put things on right order, Inverse Records is releasing special edition of the The Kings of Bullet Alley, this time with Dreamcatcher ep as bonus. This allows the band to concentrate on upcoming gigs (including warm up for Headbangers Open Air) and start demoing new potential songs for the next album. You can expect to hear more from this band in years to come.
Thanks to Metal Revelation!
(created 20.03.2012)SoulHealer would like to thank Marjo Verdooren and her company Metal Revelation for her great work she did for us during the last six months. We would never be where we are right now without her great experience in promoting bands. Due to unpredictable circumstances, it is not possible for us to continue with her. But to put all speculations down, this has nothing to do, that SoulHealer has not been satisfied. This is not true: it is only time for us to move forward in a different way. And you can trust us, there is already a lot of stuff going on, we are working on right now. So stay tuned for all the things that might happen in the SoulHealer camp in the near future. And for all other bands that are stuck in the underground and need good advice and promotion, we can highly recommend Metal Revelation. http://www.metalrevelation.com/
