“Hands down one of the best performances The Pirate Stage has ever seen. The Dead Heavys performing live from Sound City 2017.”

Pirate Studios, Sound City Festival Liverpool 2017

‘The Dead Heavys deal a psychedelic-tinged guitar-pop that could easily grab a whole stadium full of post oasis fans as well as the charts.’

John Robb – Louder Than War

‘The Dead Heavys debut EP is funky indie rock, tinged with a psychedelic edge that walks that ‘indie/pop’ line ever so well.’

‘The Dead Heavys continue to grow, adding further weight to all those attributes which stood them out from the crowd from day one.’

Barry Gruff

 ‘With their daring and irresistibly catchy dance pop grooves Waterford schemers The Dead Heavys are fast becoming ones to watch on the Irish music scene’

James Ward – The Irish Mirror

‘The Waterford band’s combination of keys, guitars and vocals evolves into a psychedelic indie stomp that is very easy on the ears. If you haven’t already caught them live, be sure to seek them out soon’

Frank Hughes – Golden Plec

‘Somewhere between bands that attempt to hark back to classic rock days, and hipster bands that simply try too hard to be unique there’s a very slim line that manages to balance both aspirations but in a fantastic and effective manner. ‘

‘As they took to the stage, we were overwhelmed by the sheer talent and their wonderfully written and catchy songs….a joy to listen to and the band seemed to enjoy every second of their performance and they were right to. The Dead Heavys kicked the night off with such a bang and these guys are most definitely a band to watch out for.’


‘Some new music for you now and this is something pretty special…..This is ‘Liquidator’ by the Dead Heavys and it is as good a song as you’ll hear from these shores this year….’


‘.. The Dead Heavys have understandable confidence in their abilities, individually and as a group. It’s tricky enough to write a decent song, trickier again to make music that gets people dancing. The ability to do both simultaneously is a rare talent and should be treasured when it is found…These guys are on another level..’
