The Heavy have announced a series of UK tour dates following the release of their new album ‘The Glorious Dead’.
The new album is The Heavy’s third full-length LP, and the follow-up to their acclaimed sophomore record The House That Dirt Built. Self-produced and with their unique, raw eclecticism fully intact, it’s their most fully-realised record yet, mixing together soul, hip hop, rock, blues and funk into glorious, raucous party music that is equally full of heart. Combining Frankensteining swampy voodoo and b-movie zombies with garage rock and Gospel-soaked soul, it’s unlike anything you’ll hear this year.
The band’s live show, too, has come of age. The Heavy have just completed a six week tour of North America including another incendiary appearance on Letterman – which ended with the man himself asking them to play another encore. They showcased much of the new album at SXSW this March, their affinity with their audience made obvious when the fans happily joined in singing the new choruses.. Funk-ridden, riffy and hair-raisingly emotive, The Heavy’s live show is a true communion with their audience.
