Tax The Heat – Announce Album Launch Shows

Tax The HeatTo celebrate the release of the highly anticipated new record “Change Your Position”, Tax The Heat are pleased to announce two launch shows in London and Bristol where they will play the forthcoming new studio album IN FULL alongside other crowd favourites from their catalogue. The first show will be held at The Islington, in London on Friday 9th March; the second will see the band perform in their hometown Bristol at Rough Trade on Saturday 7th April.

“Change Your Position” is the follow 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).

“If an album is about capturing a band or artist at a certain point, ‘Change Your Position’ might have happened at the perfect time. As a band we toured, found our sound, found our place and took inspiration from a world in utter chaos. With ‘Change Your Position’ we pushed ourselves creatively as hard as we could and it took us further into ourselves than we expected – we hope it’s apparent to the listener.” – Alex Veale
