Tax The Heat – Announce UK Dates In December 2018

Announce UK Tour Dates December 2018

Album “Change Your Position” Out Now

Praise for latest album “Change Your Position”
You can’t put a price on self-belief, and Tax The Heat sound so utterly self-assured on this follow-up to their well-received debut Fed To The Lions, you get the feeling that, for them, success is not only inevitable, it’s already here…With a nod of deference to the past grand masters and a thoroughly modern outlook, Tax The Heat are perfectly placed to reintroduce unadulterated classic rock for the next generation.”- Classic Rock

Proper feel-good rock that will have your foot tapping and the chorus lyrics burned into your hippocampus for decades to come. This stuff forces a smile and a bounce in your step! If you like your rock with a little-added roll, this might be just up your street. A fun, uncomplicated and compelling rock record.“- Louder Than War

The band’s unconventional twist on classic rock makes for some of the record’s high points: “Playing With Fire” sounds like Iron Maiden with added pop nous, and the thrilling staccato robot rock of “My Headspace” recalls latter-day Queens Of The Stone Age.” – Planet Rock

Following the release of the critically acclaimed second album, “Change Your Position”, in March 2018 and headline tour in April 2018, Tax The Heat have announced further UK dates in December 2018.

Vocalist/Guitarist Alex Veale says, “We’re excited to announce that we’ll be back out on the road in December for a handful of shows in the UK. It’s been great to see all of your responses to our new album ‘Change Your Position’ and we wanted to cap off the year with a celebration in the run-up to Christmas!”

“Change Your Position” was the follow up to the 2016 critically-acclaimed debut album “Fed To The Lions”. The new album sees the band take a huge step forward as both songwriters and performers. The band’s unique blend of fuzz-driven rock with a modern alternative twist has won them a legion of fans. The album stamps its authority from the offset with the taut “Money In the Bank” (also the first single). From the staccato stomp of “Playing With Fire” to the huge riffs of “Cut Your Chains”, from the garage rock of “On The Run” to the slow groove and instant lyrical hit of “All That Medicine”. “Change Your Position” is a lean, focused album loaded with an energy that is set to propel the band to headline status.  The driving rhythms of Jack Taylor (Drums) and Antonio Angotti (Bass) are overlaid with the powerful riffs of JP Jacyshyn (Guitars) and distinctive melodies of Alex Veale (Vocals, Guitars).

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
