Live On Letterman

The Heavy - Live On Letterman

There's only one act that have ever been asked to perform an encore by David Letterman, and as if that wasn't enough, now he's told them 'I love you.' The Heavy brought their potent, infectious, soul-searching rock n' roll back to Letterman in thunderous form last night. 

New single What Makes A Good Man? was performed in all its devils-and-angels, yearning glory, the original gospel singers on the track rejoining the band from Columbus, Ohio. And Letterman couldn't help but ask to hear the song he helped turn into an anthem in the United States, 'How You Like Me Now?' He even answered the question himself.

The Heavy's third album, The Glorious Dead, is out now and available at The Heavy's webstore and the Ninjashop. You can also stream the whole album right now over on Billboard,
