The band said in a press release that it needed a break for the last three years since its last tour. But the break gave them new energy.

  • “Yes, I could see it was time for Heart to have a break,” said Nancy Wilson. "We'd been slogging through tour after tour fairly nonstop and were starting to burn out a little bit. Things had just reached a heavy climax. … Writing brand-new songs, playing shows and delivering a new album with (band Roadcase Royale) was the medicine my soul needed."
