THE GLORIOUS DEAD
COUNTER RECORDS/NINJA TUNE
Renegade English soul-rockers The Heavy are happy to announce the release of their new album, The Glorious Dead, on August 21 via Counter Records/Ninja Tune. The Glorious Dead is the band’s third full-length LP and is the follow-up to their acclaimed sophomore record The House That Dirt Built (2009). Self-produced and with their unique, raw eclecticism fully intact, it’s their most fully-realized record yet, mixing together soul, hip-hop, rock, blues and funk into glorious, raucous party music that is equally full of heart.
Along with the release of The Glorious Dead, The Heavy are pleased to announce they will be bringing their crazy, amped-up live show to the U.S. this June with a handful of shows beginning June 18 at New York City’s Mercury Lounge and concluding with two straight nights at The Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas. The band will also be playing shows in Los Angeles and Chicago, and in the coming weeks will be announcing a full September tour. They are also slated for a performance in September at Seattle’s Bumbershoot Festival.
