Liverpool Blues Rock Band The Heavy North Return With Brand New Single And Announce Huge Hometown Show
‘Where Are You Now?’ marks the first glimpse of new music from Liverpool six-piece The Heavy North since the release of their critically-acclaimed debut album Electric Soul Machine on Record Store Day in April 2022.
Following a successful year which saw the band embark on their first 10-date UK headline tour as well as performing alongside fellow Merseyside artists The Zutons, Cast, The Boo Radleys and Red Rum Club, The Heavy North ended a landmark year with a with a sold out show at the Arts Club Theatre in Liverpool.
The band’s debut album Electric Soul Machine was heavily featured in some of 2022’s end-of-year round-ups (“the perfect encapsulation of this band’s musical talents” – Northern Chorus’s Top 10 Albums of 2022) as well as being the subject of a Tim’s Twitter Listening Party with Tim Burgess (The Charlatans) last year.
Discussing the meaning behind the new single, The Heavy North frontman Kenny Stuart said “Where Are You Now? is about remembering people who come and go in your life, and wondering whether they’re still the same person they once were and thinking about what they’re up to”.
“The lyrics explore whether those people we used to know are still the same as how we remembered them, or have their circumstances or situations changed for better or worse”.
To coincide with the release of new music and the much-anticipated second album later this year, The Heavy North have announced a handful of headline shows in May which will see the blues-rock six-piece return to Scotland to headline Glasgow’s Audio (19th) followed by new Sheffield venue Network (20th), The Live Rooms in Chester (25th) and the legendary Water Rats in Kings Cross, London (26th).
The Heavy North have also announced their biggest hometown headline show to date at Liverpool’s Camp and Furnace on Friday 1st December 2023.
The huge Liverpool show follows The Heavy North’s sold out 500-capacity Arts Club show last year where the band performed their debut album Electric Soul Machine from start to finish, accompanied by a 12-piece band featuring strings, a brass section and backing vocalists.
Speaking about the band’s end-of-year show, Kenny said “We’re made up to reveal our next big Liverpool show at the Camp and Furnace courtesy of our friends at EVOL, and we’re looking forward to performing a set of brand new tracks taken from our upcoming second album.
“After the success of our Arts Club show last year, we’ll also be inviting some guest musicians to perform with us again, so we look forward to seeing everyone in December for a special night in an incredible venue”
Tickets for this unmissable hometown headline show are available from 10am on Friday 24th February 2023.
The Heavy North’s brand new single ‘Where Are You Now?’ is available on all download and streaming platforms from Friday 24th March 2023 and is available to pre-save now courtesy of Ditto Music.
