Frank Hart of Atomic Opera Signs Global Book Deal

Frank Hart of Atomic Opera Signs Global Book Deal for an Autobiography.

PRLog - Feb. 7, 2013 - VIP Ink Publishing, L.L.C. signs Frank Hart of Atomic Opera for an autobiography. Frank Hart is the lead singer, lead guitarist and founding visionary of the rock band Atomic Opera. As part of the "Houston Sound", along with his friends who made up the bands King's X and Galactic Cowboys, Hart released four albums with Atomic Opera; For Madmen Only (Warner Brothers/Collision Arts/Giant Records), Penguin Dust and Alpha & Oranges (FeverDream Records), and Gospel Cola (Metal Blade Records). The band toured with Dio, King's X, and played at many music festivals, theaters and other concert venues throughout the United States and Japan. Hart forged his own path with dark arrangements, poetic lyrics, varied instrumentation, and a deeply spiritual message.

Unlike some of his contemporaries, Hart did not hide his faith, but was insistent about avoiding the stereotypes of "Christian Rock," because many of these songs challenged weak-minded Christianity and the relationship between God and man. Atomic Opera was often “too sacred" for some and “too secular" for others, a tension that Hart enjoyed. The first single, "Justice" was the number one most added radio track in hard rock radio for six consecutive weeks and the music video was played in rotation on MTV. Hart has been featured in Guitar Player Magazine and was voted "Houston's best guitarist who never plays live" by the Houston Press. In 2005,  Hart released a solo album called "Human Liturgy" to enthusiastic critical acclaim. For the past eight years, he has worked at CrossPoint Community Church where he is the creative director and worship leader. He is currently finishing his second solo album "The Living Creatures Project” , and planning a new Atomic Opera album in 2014 with members from the original lineup as well as the current band (2014 is the 20th anniversary of "For Madmen Only").

Hart's autobiography will cover his life growing up in hopeless poverty as the step-son of a coal miner in Central Illinois, finding faith and music, and the crooked and twisted road he took to follow his dreams. This book will provide the reader with a glimpse into the struggles and triumphs of an artist living out his faith and never losing hope. Hart says that his music is the space between prayer and dreaming; and once you visit there, the world will never look quite the same.
