British three-piece Tax The Heat recently signed with Nuclear Blast Records, and the band’s debut album is set for release on in 2016. This Bristol-based band caught my attention with the wicked-awesome ‘Fed To The Lions’, and is made up of Alex Veale, Jack Taylor, Antonio Angotti, and JP Jacyshyn. In the band’s bio, they describe Tax The Heat like this:
…born from a pure love of straight-ahead rhythm and blues music. With nods to many of their influences, the music they create calls back to a time when rock’n’roll was still new, vibrant and exciting – combining elements of 60’s R&B, 70’s rock and contemporary song writing, all within a deep-rooted blues ethic.
Sounds good to me!
‘Some Sympathy’ is the first track released from that new album, and it definitely whets my appetite for more. You can check out Tax The Heat on tour in the UK through the end of November and early December. Tax The Heat is also opening for Europe on their European tour.
