IN THE CABIN!
An evening with The Heavy North and friends
Five-piece garage/blues rock band The Heavy North kicked off in November 2018 with a show at Manchester’s Night & Day Cafe alongside the release of debut singles “Don’t You Wait For Me“ & “The Night Don’t Give No Love”
Recorded and released on 3rd Planet Recordings and mastered by Mike Marsh at The Exchange in Devon (credits include Nick Cave, Oasis, Kasabian, Chemical Brothers, The Libertines), the band’s debut tracks were described as “a great contribution to Liverpool’s rock scene” by GetIntoThis with The Heavy North’s sound summed up as “dirty scuzzed-up dive bar blues”.
Following a headline show at Liverpool’s Jacaranda Phase One in February 2019, the band’s track “Don’t You Wait For Me” debuted on BBC Introducing Merseyside (16 Feb) with Dave Monks.
The Heavy North played a number of live dates in March/April 2019 including a return to Manchester’s Night & Day Cafe, a late-night ‘This Feeling’ Afterparty gig (The Black Keys special) and shows in Liverpool, Blackpool and Leeds.
The Heavy North’s third single “Some Good Lovin'” was released in June 2019 ahead of the band’s festival debut at Liverpool International Music Festival (LIMF), appearing on the Music City Stage alongside local artists championed by Bido Lito!, GetIntoThis (GIT), BBC Introducing and more.
“Some Good Lovin'” was recorded and produced by Jose Ibanez (3rd Planet Recordings) and mastered by John Davis at Metropolis Studios, London (credits include Led Zeppelin, Bands of Skulls, Primal Scream). The track was accompanied by the band’s first music video filmed by Scott Mealey, and released on 3rd Planet Recordings.
The Heavy North played their biggest hometown show to date at a sold-out Jimmy’s in September 2019, followed by shows at Warrington’s Rivfest, the Smithdown Road Festival All-Dayer and the Arts Club Liverpool supporting Saint Agnes.
12 months after the band’s debut gig, The Heavy North announced details of their fourth single “As Long As You’re Here With Me” released Monday 9th December.
