Renegade English soul-rockers The Heavy are pleased to announce the release of the new music video for their track, "Can't Play Dead." Featured on the band's acclaimed new full-length album, The Glorious Dead (Counter Records) and out just in time for Halloween, the horror-film atmospherics of "Can't Play Dead" follow the band's previous single, "What Makes A Good Man?" - a blaring soul stomper that was recently performed on numerous American late-night television shows including The Late Show With David Letterman, The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson and Last Call With Carson Daly. Check out the exclusive premiere of "Can't Play Dead" over at Entertainment Weekly.
The Heavy recently completed a full-scale, month-long North American run showcasing The Glorious Dead as well as the rest of its celebrated catalog. Out now, The Glorious Dead is the band's third LP and the follow-up to their acclaimed sophomore record The House That Dirt Built (2009), an album that featured the smash hit "How You Like Me Now?" - a track that has clocked up over 500K downloads to date and has been featured in countless advertisements. Self-produced and with their unique, raw eclecticism fully intact, The Glorious Dead is their most fully-realized record yet, mixing together soul, hip-hop, rock, blues and funk into glorious, raucous party music that is equally full of heart.
From the funked-up hip-hop rhythm of "Big Bad Wolf" to the laid-back nature of "Curse Me Good" and the epic, heavy-hitting gospel rock 'n' roll of "Same 'Ol," The Glorious Dead illustrates this skilled ensemble's musical range that's packed with yearning and pure soul.
