Electrifying Bristolian rockers TAX THE HEAT release their sophomore album Change Your Position today. The new offering has that familiar mix of alternative- swagger that we have come to love about the band and is laden with big, chunky riffs and foot stompin’ anthems – anthems that are perfectly suited to having a beer or two. As the guys enjoy having a pint themselves, we decided to take Alex and Jack to Whale in Brixton, London to test their beer tasting skills. Find out what happened, here:

Alex Veale comments, “If an 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 says, “When we wrote the Change Your Position we followed our nose and let the music manifest itself in the way it did. Now we’ve started rehearsing for the tour it’s become apparent how good this will feel to the album and loud in some fantastic intimate venues. We can’t wait, join us!”
