Following the announcement of two close to sell out album launch shows, Tax The Heat are delighted to announce a full UK headline tour in April 2018.
Alex Veale says, “When we wrote the “Change Your Position” album, we followed our nose and let the music manifest itself in the way it did. Now we’ve started rehearsing for the tour it’s become apparent how good this will feel to play the album live and loud in some fantastic intimate venues. We can’t wait, join us!”
Nuclear Blast Entertainment are also pleased to announce the release of the forthcoming new album from Tax The Heat, “Change Your Position”, on 9th March 2018. The album will be available as CD, Digital, Limited Edition Gatefold Vinyl and Limited Edition Light Blue Vinyl.
“Change Your Position” is the following up to the 2016 critically acclaimed debut album “Fed To The Lions”. The new album sees the band take a huge step forward as both songwriters and performers. The band’s unique blend of fuzz-driven rock with a modern alternative twist has won them a legion of fans. The album stamps its authority right from the off with the taut “Money In the Bank” (also the first single). From the staccato stomp of “Playing With Fire” to the huge riffs of “Cut Your Chains”, from the garage rock of “On The Run” to the slow groove and instant lyrical hit of “All That Medicine”. “Change Your Position” is a lean, focused album loaded with an energy that is set to propel the band to headline status.
The driving rhythms of Jack Taylor (Drums) and Antonio Angotti (Bass) are overlaid with the powerful riffs of JP Jacyshyn (Guitars) and distinctive melodies of Alex Veale (Vocals, Guitars).
Watch and listen to the latest single “All That Medicine”:
From humble beginnings in 2015, Tax The Heat have become one of the most notable of new British rock acts. Multiple singles playlisted across radio in both 2015 and 2016 – taken from debut album “Fed To The Lions”. The band also honed their live craft supporting the likes Cadillac 3, Reef, The Graveltones, Black Star Riders, Masters Of Reality, Virginmarys and Thunder and festival appearances such as 2000 Trees, Download, Calling and Ramblin’ Man Fair.
