The charge of soul, the rhythm of funk, and the scratchy melodies of frontman Kelvin Swaby have led The Heavy to be one of the most disruptive and original realities of the new British scene.
The band from Noid will be in Milan on 11 November, at the Salumeria della Musica, to present the brand new 'The Glorious Dead', the third album of their career.
The new single 'What makes a good man', the video for which was released on 21 August, is already a hit online and on radio stations in the UK and US.

The general public got to know them when, on the David Letterman Show, they gave a performance that will go down in the history of the programme, as the popular anchorman hailed the performance live and implored them to continue, visibly impressed by the four musicians.
It was just before 'The House that Dirt Built', their second album, which represented a big step forward compared to their debut 'Great Vengeance & Furious Fire', introducing a varied funky, at times angry and dirty, skilfully crafted by the hands and ears of producer Jim Abiss, formerly with Arctic Monkeys and Kasabian.
THE HEAVY are Swaby (vocals), Dan 'T' Taylor (guitar), Spencer 'Big daddy' Page (bass), Chris Ellul (drums).

The English band came to Italy in the spring of 2010 for an extraordinary concert at the Bloom in Mezzago.
