Das sechste Album AMEN von The Heavy erscheint morgen und wurde in den Rockfield Studios aufgenommen, mit Tchad Blake (The Black Keys, U2) produziert und mit Joe Jones von den Real World Studios aufgenommen. Das Album gespickt mit aufrührerischer Blues-Dramatik, Soul- und Gospel-Leidenschaft, dem Crunch des Hip-Hop und der Unmittelbarkeit des Garage-Punk. Passend dazu haben wir der Band unsere 10 Wunderfragen gestellt.
Frontstage Magazine: If you could trade places with a musician/band for a concert….
The Heavy: It would have to be the Reverend Al Green after the 1972 album, I’m Still In Love With You.
Frontstage Magazine: If one of you drops out at the next concert, but you have to play, then…
The Heavy: We’ll still put on a kickass show.
Frontstage Magazine: If you looked at your Wikipedia entry 10 years from now, it would say …
The Heavy: Still Heavy. Still here. Still killing it.
Frontstage Magazine: If you could host your own festival, then…
The Heavy: It would be ridiculous and super eclectic.
Frontstage Magazine: If your absolute favorite band/artist would play with you in the opening program, then…
The Heavy: If we were to play with one of our favourite artists of all time, we would always make sure we show up and play to every one of our strengths.
Frontstage Magazine: If you had to do any job well for the rest of your life, you would…
The Heavy: Be the best at being who I’m supposed to be.
Frontstage Magazine: If, starting tomorrow, every human being could travel back and forth to any number of parallel Earths untouched by humans, then…
The Heavy: You would hope that they would learn something. Kindness mostly.
Frontstage Magazine: If your biggest idol asked you for some advice, it would be….
The Heavy: Always try and be better than yesterday and to never give up. As Winston Churchill once said “If you’re going through hell……keep going”
Frontstage Magazine: If you had everyone’s attention for 30 seconds, then…
The Heavy: 30 seconds is nowhere near enough time to address race relations, the worldwide assault on a woman’s reproductive/civil liberty and freedom….all while the greediest, dirtiest, most shameful politicians continue to wreak havoc globally.
Frontstage Magazine: If you wake up tomorrow and don’t know anything about your band in the morning…
The Heavy: It would be a bad day at first but then a great education after a dig in the vault.
