Heavyball Short Info

Heavyball are a hard rocking new tone band based in London. Formed in late 2011 when Nottingham brothers Bigface and Habs Salisbury and school friend Johnny Iball, began to
play together. 2014 saw them joined by Tom 'Stone Cold' Frost on lead guitar.

The band’s sound is a modern interpretation of two tone and ska, with driving percussion and distinctive melodies. Influences include Viz, Shane Meadows and the story writing traditions of country and western.

Heavyball have toured with the Kaiser Chiefs in the UK and Europe and supported ska legends The Selecter. Heavyball's addictive melodies and energetic live performances have
seen them play festivals all over the UK and headlining Harlem Shuffle festival in the Netherlands.

Heavyball’s recordings have been championed by DJs such as 6 Music’s Chris Hawkins and Tom Robinson, BBC Radio Nottingham’s Dean Jackson, BBC London’s Gary Crowley and the late BBC Radio Ulster’s Gerry Anderson.

2014 has been a busy year for the band with numerous UK shows. Following playing the Strawberry Fields festival in August the band embarked on a European tour in October with dates in Germany, Austria, the Czech Republic and Holland. Heavyball will kick off 2015 with the release of their first album, a new single and a brand new music video.
