“A classic funk intro gives way to possibly the best drum sound of all year, a bass line deeper than hell, and builds towards a multi-instrumental racket of concrete beauty.” -Q Magazine

“Some heavyweight voodoo.” –Clash Mag

“A barnstormer of a track that's fittingly described as a widescreen funk epic.” –IndieLondon

“There's a load of on-fire remixes here… But it's hard to see how anyone's going to play them given the original. Stunning.” –DJ Magazine

Noid, England bandits The Heavy's new single ‘How You Like Me Now?' has been making serious waves in the UK, with its James Brown swagger and hard-hitting beats. Now, it is available to US fans, with a caveat: Not for the faint of heart. For the past week, the single was featured in the iTunes store's ‘Indie' feature and in the Rock genre store.

It was made available exclusively on iTunes on September 8th, and is now available wherever music is sold today, September 15th. This singles package also includes B-side, ‘Tell It Like It Is,' and 5 additional remixes of ‘How You Like Me Now.'

To see the band in action, make sure to catch them as they rattle bones and howl across the US starting October 21st. The Heavy are back. Hide the women and children.

“Enough scuzz guitars and heart attack drums to make The Sonics blush… before exploding in a glorious cloud of amp shards and broken glass.” – NME

“A cast-iron groove-rock quintet whose mix of frazzle and funk gives off an instantaneous contact high. Superfly and superfun.” – Spin

“The Heavy are reaching into long forgotten closets and pulling archaic samplers, rusty horns and rotting guitars – then blowing the dust off ‘em and into your ear… Tom Waits harboring the RZA.” – URB

“The Heavy sound like Curtis Mayfield's ‘Pusherman' resurrecting Led Zeppelin and the exiled spirit of Cassius Clay. Get used to the weight, The Heavy are about to throw it down.” - The Fly

Get Heavy.
