The Heavy's Single 'How You Like Me Now?' Certified Gold Band's Latest Album 'The Glorious Dead' Out Now

Renegade UK soul-rockers The Heavy are proud to announce that their hit single "How You Like Me Now?" has been awarded an RIAA Gold Digital Single Award for its combined sales of 500,000 downloads and more. The song is taken from the band's sophomore album, The House That Dirt Built, which was released in 2009. As one of the band's live favorites, "How You Like Me Now?" has gone on to be featured in countless advertisements, television shows, video games, and films since its release and is continuing to gain even more recognition. The Heavy recently released the follow-up to The House That Dirt Built titled The Glorious Dead, their third full-length LP that was released by Counter Records in August of 2012. Self-produced and with their unique, raw eclecticism fully intact,The Glorious Dead is the band's 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?," was snatched up by Miller Beer for a national ad campaign (featuring the band in a dressing room cameo), was recently used as part of the 2013 NFL Draft presentation alongside a collaboration with 50 Cent, and was performed on a number of American late-night television shows including The Late Show With David Letterman,The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson and Last Call With Carson Daly. From the horror film atmospherics of "Can't Play Dead" and the laid-back sincerity of "Curse Me Good" to the funked-up hip hop rhythm of "Big Bad Wolf" and the epic, heavy-hitting gospel rock 'n' roll of "Same 'Ol," The Glorious Dead finds the band exploring new creative territory on their new offering with impressive results. 

The Heavy are currently wrapping up a North American tour but will be making the following U.S. appearances this month. Dates below.

AUGUST
13 - Portland, OR - Mississippi Studios (SOLD OUT)
24 - Brooklyn, NY - Afropunk Festival - Commodore Barry Park
