Released 20/08/2012

Renegade English soul-rockers The Heavy are happy to announce the release of their new album, The Glorious Dead, on 21 August 2012 via Counter Records/Ninja Tune.

The Glorious Dead is the band’s third full-length LP, and 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.

The first single from The Glorious Dead, “What Makes A Good Man,” follows in the footsteps of the band’s sleeper hit “How You Like Me Now”  with its monumental chorus and crunching beats. But there’s more to the album than just that, from the horror film atmospherics of “Can’t Play Dead” to the laid-back sincerity of “Curse Me Good,” the funked-up hip hop rhythm of “Big Bad Wolf” and the epic, heavy-hitting gospel rock ‘n’ roll of “Same ‘Ol.” Throughout, vocalist Swaby’s voice soars, packed with yearning and pure soul.
