'CHANGE YOUR POSITION' MAKES BEST ALBUMS OF THE YEAR LIST

 
 

Our new album ’Change Your Position’ has made it to No.12 in Louder’s list of 'The 50 Best Albums of 2018 (So Far)'! Here's what they had to say:

"You can’t put a price on self-belief, and Tax The Heat sound so utterly self-assured on this follow-up to their well-received 2016 debut Fed To The Lions, you get the feeling that, for them, success is not only inevitable, it’s already here. And this ingrained confidence in what they’re doing makes the obvious touchstones that provide the bedrock of their sound – the layered Queen choral bursts, the White Stripes simple-not simple blues battering, the cocksure Thin Lizzy swagger – appear less like pastiche and more like taking the responsibility of carrying a grand old torch."

FED TO THE LIONS LIVE AT DOWNLOAD FESTIVAL

 
 

This time last year we were preparing to play at the world-renowned Download Festival. Today we've released a live video of the title track from our debut album, 'Fed To The Lions'. Give it a spin and let us know what you think in the comments on YouTube.

NEW SINGLE 'CHANGE YOUR POSITION'

Having recently announced two special album launch shows and a full UK tour in April, Tax The Heat are gearing up for their new album Change Your Position to hit stores on 9th March 2018. With just over a month before the album drops, the band are teasing fans with another new track. Today they present the official video for the groove-laden title track, 'Change Your Position'.


Change is good. Change is important. Change is the enemy of stagnation, a vital means to keep things fresh, innovative and exciting. For Tax The Heat, ‘change’ means something else too. The title track of the acclaimed British band’s stunning new album, ‘Change Your Position’, sees them addressing the turbulent state of the world right now and the very real impact it is having on people. “It’s looking at division in society and people using it as an excuse to do wrong and say wrong”, says singer and guitarist Alex Veale. “It’s saying, ‘Look, change your position.' It’s holding up a mirror to things.”

NEW SINGLE 'ALL THAT MEDICINE'

Today we release our NEW SINGLE 'All That Medicine' from the forthcoming album 'Change Your Position' due 9th March 2018.

-Click play on the video above to hear it in full-

Vocalist and guitarist Alex Veale explains how the track came about: “We had started coming up with initial ideas for songs for what would become our second album ‘Change Your Position’ and it was the moment we had a jam through the riff of ‘All That Medicine’ that everything became clear. For me, it is the root of the album from which everything else grew. It was inspired in part by Fame by David Bowie, the idea of cycling around a riff and a groove totally appealed to me. I think it’s the one we are most looking forward to playing on the road and making sure that riff really hits hard.”

"If an album is about capturing a band or artist at a certain point, 'Change Your Position' might have happened at the perfect time. As a band we toured, found our sound, found our place and took inspiration from a world in utter chaos. With 'Change Your Position' we pushed ourselves creatively as hard as we could and it took us further into ourselves than we expected - we hope it's apparent to the listener." - Alex Veale

CHANGE YOUR POSITION ALBUM PRE-ORDER

 
 

Our new album 'Change Your Position' will be released on 9th March 2018 and is available to pre-order from TODAY! It will be available on CD, Digitally, Limited Edition Gatefold Vinyl and Limited Edition Light Blue Vinyl.

'Change Your Position' is the follow up to the 2016 critically-acclaimed debut album 'Fed To The Lions'. The new album sees the band take a huge step forward as both songwriters and performers and the band’s unique blend of fuzz-driven rock has won them a legion of fans. The album stamps its authority right from the off with stomper “Money In the Bank”. From the staccato attack of 'Playing With Fire' to the huge riffs of 'Cut Your Chains', from the garage rock of 'On The Run' to the slow groove and instant lyrical hit of 'All That Medicine'. 'Change Your Position' is a lean, focused album loaded with an energy that is set to propel the band to headline status.

"If an album is about capturing a band or artist at a certain point, 'Change Your Position' might have happened at the perfect time. As a band we toured, found our sound, found our place and took inspiration from a world in utter chaos. With 'Change Your Position' we pushed ourselves creatively as hard as we could and it took us further into ourselves than we expected - we hope it's apparent to the listener." – Alex Veale

NEW SINGLE ‘MONEY IN THE BANK’

'Money In The Bank' is the first single from our forthcoming album, 'Change Your Position' - Due 9th March 2018.

"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. On Nov 8th we hit the road with Black Star Riders and will be playing some material from our forthcoming album." – Alex Veale
