Sleeve & Vinyl in Nr MINT condition
Winger is an American rock band that has combined elements of glam metal and progressive metal. Formed in New York City, Winger gained popularity during the late 1980s and early 1990s. The band's two platinum albums, Winger and In the Heart of the Young, along with charting singles "Seventeen", "Headed for a Heartbreak" and "Miles Away", put them on the top of the charts by the early 1990s. In 1990, the band was nominated for an American Music Award for "Best New Heavy Metal Band". As the music scene changed in the early to mid-1990s due to the popularity of grunge, their success faded after their third release Pull.
Winger disbanded in 1994. In 2001 they reunited and have since conducted several successful tours. In 2006, the band's 1993 touring line-up (minus Paul Taylor but including John Roth) reunited to record the band's first studio album in over 13 years, IV, and toured in support of the album into 2008.
In 2009, the band released their fifth album, Karma. As of 2013, Winger still performs on mini-tours, festivals and private events. Their most recent album, Better Days Comin', came out in 2014.
"Headed for a Heartbreak" is a single by American rock band Winger, from their self-titled debut album Winger. Released in May 1989, the power ballad reached #19 on the US Hot 100 and #8 on the US Mainstream Rock chart. The B-side to the single was "State of Emergency".
The music video for "Headed for a Heartbreak" was directed by Mark Rezyka and edited by Scott C. Wilson.
