Uriah Heep release "Official Bootleg Vol. 5, Live In Athens, Greece 2011" on 16 April 2012 on CD digi-pack via Edel's international rock label, earMUSIC distributed in the UK & Republic of Ireland by Absolute via Universal. This is the fifth official bootleg of a series of live albums to be released ? collecting the entire series, the spine of all CDs will form a picture.

Uriah Heep marked 40 years in Rock with their 2009 greatest hits studio album "Celebration". The "Celebration" tour proved that Uriah Heep haven't forgotten how to rock. The tour visited every major city in Europe and many more across the world. The songs sound incredibly fresh as the band hit the stage in Athens on 12th of March 2011 at The Gagarin 205! They kick off with "Overload" and it's rock all the way. As Mick Box says, "We do look forward to playing Greece everytime it is put into our touring schedules and we hope that enthusiasm shines through, and enjoy this CD, as we make it a little bit of Heep Bootleg, Rock History. 'Appy Days!"

Originally founded by guitarist Mick Box and the sadly missed vocalist David Byron, Uriah Heep's songs sparkle due to sophisticated songwriting, fascinating harmony backing vocals and unexcelled catchy melodies. During the years the band ran through an amazing number of reformations, with Mick Box always at the helm, supported by the great talent of ex Bowie/Ziggy band Trevor Bolder on bass who shared most of the Uriah Heep history with him.
