It’s been a busy time for The Dead Heavys since bursting onto the Irish music just three years ago.

THE DEAD HEAVYS are going from strength to strength. 2017 is an exciting year for the band as their music hits the airwaves (you’ve probably heard ‘Lazarus’ on TV and Radio as part of the Supervalu ad campaign) as they approach completion of their debut album.

Highlights of an impressive track record gigging have included a capacity show at The Village; a storming Sunday night set at Electric Picnic 2016 and their international debut at Croatia’s INmusic Festival alongside Arctic Monkeys & Basement Jaxx.

The band’s independently- released debut single Everybody In The Nite was produced by Jagz Kooner. It hit the Irish top fifty and was met with much acclaim by those in the know, among them John Robb (The Guardian/LTW) who noted them as a band that ‘could easily grab the attention of a stadium full of fans or the charts’, XFM’s Eddy Temple Morris, The Enemy’s Tom Clarke, and Jon McClure from Reverend & the Makers.

2014 saw two further single releases with The New Age of Innocence and Uptight, both played in heavy rotation, and the first Irish Dead Heavys tour with shows in Dublin, Cork, Galway and Waterford.

The single, Liquidator, featuring vocalist Aisling Browne of Solar Taxi and Cut Once, has been licensed to season 7 of Shameless USA. It was played on heavy rotation in Ireland. The accompanying video was hosted across the UK and Ireland from top music sites and blogs. It also spent two weeks on Reverbnation’s global homepage after topping the national indie charts. 2015 also saw the band land in the top 3 from 800 Guinness amplify acts selected by the Deputy editor at Hot-press Stuart Clark.
