Tax The Heat – Official New Video “Animals”


Bristol’s original blues rockers Tax The Heat recently announced the release of their full length Nuclear Blast Entertainment debut, Fed To       The Lions. The band are today premiering an official video for the track ‘Animals’, which features on the new release. Check out the official video and submit to the earworm that is ‘Animals’,

The video was created by Louis Catlett from Rataplan Films, who created the Fed To The Lions video too. The band commented: “Animals is      a great example of what our debut album has to offer, hard hitting, high energy rock and roll. We played around with the song for a while but it was when we were in the studio that we somehow landed on that big chorus riff, and the song suddenly made sense. We shot the video with a Bristol      based company Rataplan, which was an easy video shoot for us – Louis (director) really captured the energy and vibe of the song.”

Fed To the Lions perfectly illustrates why there is so much excitement at the release of this album. Previous singles ‘Some Sympathy’, ‘Highway Home’ and ‘Fed To The Lions’ sit alongside future classics such as‘Caroline’, ‘Animals’ and ‘Stood On the Platform To Leave’. The driving rhythms of Jack Taylor (Drums) andAntonio Angotti (Bass) are overlaid with the powerful riffs of JP Jacyshyn (Guitars) and the distinctive melodies of Alex Veale (Vocals, Guitars).

“Tax The Heat is a great band, as tight as duck’s arse, and much better looking. I hear the new record is great too.” – Danny Bowes, Thunder

“These guys are easily the best new bands I have heard in years!” – Scott Gorham, Thin Lizzy & Black Star Riders

“So the music business has taken a bit of a tumble but there are talented hungry, young bands out there who can build a new foundation. The bold      and brilliant Bristol outfit Tax The Heat is one of those bands that soars above the rest. Their song ‘Fed to the Lions’ is already a true classic rock           track and they’ve only just begun!” – Joey Tempest, Europe

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
