When Eight Beat Measure's last album, No Safety Nets, was released in the fall of 2010, it marked the group's first foray into the realm of contemporary a cappella recording. The release of Heatin' Up marks the group's 25th anniversary as well as a fundamental evolution in the group's sound as we strive to create great music and push the medium forward. We extend our deepest thanks to all of our friends in the a cappella community, both at RIT and internationally, who have contributed their time and talents to making this dream a reality. It is our distinct honor to share our passion with you, and we hope that our brotherhood and genuine love for a cappella music is apparent in this album. As always, we dedicate this album to our friends, family and alumni who have supported us over these past 25 years. It has been an extraordinary journey, and we look forward to reaching even greater heights over the next 25 years and beyond.
