Jack and Alex discuss the musical guilty pleasures that have influenced the band!
Electrifying Bristolian rockers TAX THE HEAT release their sophomore albumChange Your Positiontoday. The new offering has that familiar mix of alternative-rock swagger that we have come to love about the band and is laden with big, chunky riffs and foot stompin' anthems. Listening to the new tunes, it may seem obvious what bands have influenced TAX THE HEAT's sound, but how about those guilty pleasures? Watch as Jack and Alex spill the beans on what tunes get played in the van when the guys are on tour, here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pXr2WEVM7YM
- Alex Veale comments, "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."
Change Your Position Tracklisting: 01. Money In The Bank 02. Change Your Position 03. Playing With Fire 04. All That Medicine 05. On The Run 06. The Last Time 07. Taking The Hit 08. My Headspace 09. We Are Consumers 10. Cut Your Chains 11. Wearing A Disguise 12. The Symphony Has Begun
The band will be performing the new album in full at three special album launch shows, one of which is now sold out. Due to overwhelming demand, the band have just announced an extra date at Bristol'sRough Trade venue. These shows will be followed by a full UK tour in April. See below for details.
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!"
