Welcome back to The Heavy, Britain’s most incendiary party-starters. Formed in 2007 in the West Country and with four incredibly successful albums released via hip British indie label Ninja Tune, having clocked up a mightily impressive 200 million streams for their previous releases, the rock and soul quartet are now set to unleash their fifth long-player via BMG, entitled Sons
Sons takes the band’s blazing, urgent and infectious sound to dizzying new heights, flitting between soul, bombastic rock, and blues in a singular package. “Sons is taking it back to the dirt and filth The Heavy are best known for......and making it better than we ever have” says lead singer Kelvin Swaby
The Heavy’s unrivalled ability to get a crowd going has become their trademark since debut album ‘Great Vengeance And Furious Fire’ was released in 2007. Since then, the four-piece have seen their anthems ‘How You Like Me Now’ and ‘Short Change Hero’ rack up 50 million streams each, while smashing it at festivals from Glastonbury to Coachella via Fuji Rock in Japan, where ‘Same Ol’’ from third album ‘The Glorious Dead’ became a huge hit. Their music has been used in films as varied as Dallas Buyers Club, The Big Short and Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight. The Heavy even became the first band to be asked to do an encore by chat-show king David Letterman, who selected their righteous rendition of How You Like Me Now among his all-time favourite 10 performances on Late Night With Letterman in the show’s 35-year history.
In support of the new album Sons, the band have announced a run of intimate dates including two very special shows at London’s Bush Hall on 21stMay and Bristol’s Trinity on 28thMay. Exclusive access to a pre-sale for the UK and European leg will be available for anyone who pre-orders ‘Sons’ from the official artist store. The 24-hour priority ticket access window will open at 10am local time on Wednesday 13th February. General sale begins at 10am local time on 14thFebruary with further info at www.theheavy.co.uk.
