“We are extremely excited to unveil the first single from our new album. ‘Money In The Bank’ combines key elements of what we do best: big riffs, big choruses and filthy guitars. We believe that an album should be seen as a snapshot in time of an artist or band, this album has captured us at a particularly exciting moment.” – Alex Veale
Modern British rockers Tax The Heat have unveiled their first single “Money In The Bank” ahead of their forthcoming second studio album ‘Change Your Position’. The record is scheduled for release on 9th March 2018 via Nuclear Blast Entertainment and is available to pre-order today! It will be available on CD, Digitally, Limited Edition Gatefold Vinyl and Limited Edition Light Blue Vinyl. Order your copy here and purchase the teaser single “Money In The Bank”here, and catch them live on the final few dates of their UK tour with Black Star Riders!
Inspired by classic 60’s rock n’ roll, Tax The Heats sound harks back to the days of the greats such as The Beatles, The Who and The Kinks whilst remaining equally comparable to modern to contemporary artists such as Queens Of The Stone Age, Jack White and The Black Keys. “Money In The Bank” bridges the gap between old and new and reinvigorates the unrivaled classic sound with a modern alternative twist. As guitarist/vocalist Alex Veale says “We love the energy of those ’60s bands. Maximum R&B – that’s the basis for TAX THE HEAT. But we’re taking it somewhere else…creating something that has that raw energy but is also original.” From humble beginnings in 2015, Tax The Heat have become one of the most notable of new British rock acts. Singles taken from debut album ‘Fed To The Lions’ (2016) picked up airplay on Kerrang! Radio, Planet Rock and BBC Introducing. The band also honed their live craft supporting the likes of Cadillac 3, Reef, The Graveltones, Black Star Riders, Masters Of Reality, Virginmarys and Thunder, and festival appearances such as 2000 Trees, Download, Calling and Ramblin’ Man Fair.
