The Dead Heavys Short Info

The Dead Heavys have been part of the music scene for under 24 months but in that time they have managed to squeeze in quite a lot. From their debut show at Waterford’s Spraoi Festival the band went on to play a debut Dublin show to a capacity Village, play a storming Saturday night set at last year’s Electric Picnic & make their international debut at Croatias INmusic Festival alongside Arctic Monkeys & Basement Jaxx.
In September 2013 the band independently released their debut single “Everybody In The Nite” the Jagz Kooner (Primal Cream/Sabres Of Paradise) produced song made the Irish top 50 and also gained the band some influential fans in the UK. John Robb (The Guardian/LTW) noted them as a band that “could easily grab the attention of a stadium full of fans or even the charts”. XFM’s Eddy Temple Morris championed the band on his popular show while musicians such as The Enemy’s Tom Clarke & Jon Mcclure from Reverend & the Makers also championed the band.
Two more singles released in 2014 “The New Age of Innocence” & “Uptight” both achieved significant airplay success and saw The Heavys playing their first Irish tour with shows in Dublin, Cork, Galway & Waterford.
With another single slated for release later this year and studio time booked for the band to begin work on a debut LP The Dead Heavys are set to go from strength to strength.

“As they took to the stage, we (the audience) were overwhelmed by the sheer talent and their wonderfully written and catchy songs. “ Ian Blount Dublin Concerts

"With their daring and irresistibly catchy dance pop grooves Waterford schemers The Dead Heavys are fast becoming ones to watch on the Irish music scene" James Ward, Irish Mirror.

"The Dead Heavys (another Top 10 Plec Pick) came armed with some sweeping rock grooves that should see them primed for the big time. The Waterford band’s combination of keys, guitars and vocals evolves into a psychedelic indie stomp that is very easy on the ears. If you haven’t already caught them live, be sure to seek them out soon". Live Review Vantastival 2013, Frank Hughes, GoldenPlec
