Additional information about this Survivor vinyl art.

Survivor – The Artists

Survivor is an American rock band formed in Chicago in 1978 by Jim Peterik and Frankie Sullivan. The band achieved its best success in the 1980s, producing many charting singles, especially in the United States. The band is best-known for their double-platinum-certified 1982 hit “Eye of the Tiger”, the theme song for the 1982 motion picture Rocky III. The band continued to chart in the mid-1980s with singles like “Burning Heart”, “The Search Is Over”, “High on You”, “Is This Love”, and “I Can’t Hold Back.” Before Survivor formed, Jim Peterik was the lead vocalist–guitarist for the band The Ides of March. The Jim Peterik Band formed after Peterik had released his album Don’t Fight the Feeling on Epic Records in 1976. The liner notes of the album, written by Jim Charney, refer to Peterik as a “survivor”. This note inspired the name of Peterik’s next grouping.

Burning Heart – The Song

‘Burning Heart’ is a  song by American rock band Survivor. It appeared in the 1985 film Rocky IV and on its soundtrack album; the film’s star Sylvester Stallone personally commissioned the song.
It was the biggest hit the band had with Jimi Jamison on lead vocals. It was also a top 5 hit in the UK, US, Germany and several other European countries, and reached the top 15 in Canada. “Burning Heart”, which is about an “all or nothing” battle, was inspired by the Cold War, as shown by lyrics such as “Is it East versus West?” and “Can any nation stand alone?” The Communist East versus Capitalist West conflict is reflected in the film by the fight in the boxing ring between Rocky and Ivan Drago. The music video for “Burning Heart” features Survivor giving a concert, mixed with scenes from the film Rocky IV. A version with only the band (no movie footage) also exists, available on YouTube.

The Boxing Glove – The Shape

This record has been modelled into the silhouette of a boxing glove. Boxing gloves are cushioned gloves that fighters wear on their hands during boxing matches and practices. Unlike “fist-load weapons” (such as the ancient cestus) which were designed as a lethal weapon, modern boxing gloves are non-lethal, designed to protect both the opponent’s head and the fighter’s hand during a bout. Sparring and other forms of boxing training have their own specialised gloves.
