Uriah Heep have revealed their 24th album will be called "Outsider," and it's set for release in June via Frontiers Records, Classic Rock reports.

It's their first studio outing since the death of bassist Trevor Bolder last year after a battle against cancer. In his place is former Zodiac Mindwarp member Davey Rimmer.

Last month mainman Mick Box reported: "We've finished the recording of the new album with our producer Mike Paxman - the last note has been sung and the last note has been played.

"We're all very excited about the new songs as we head towards the mixing stage. It's been a wonderful adventure thus far, and it will be good for the fans to have some new Heep music. 'Appy days!"

No further details have been released at present. The band played at London's Koko in March and recorded it for a DVD release, with the set including material from "Outsider."

    Announce* The past tense thing makes it seem like a reminder. It might as well say "Oh, by the way, Uriah Heep announced their 24th album the other day. I think we forgot to mention that."
    Guess they're using the chance since they're on the "Rock Meets Classic" tour with Alice Cooper this year.
    Love 'em but6 they need to quit now that they are ahead.They are like the Stones. Except that the Stones still sell albums. Uriah Heep has been declining since 1983.
