2015 was an intense year for Bristol’s rising stars Tax The Heat. Following the release of two critically acclaimed singles “Fed The Lions” and “Highway Home” (both of which were playlisted across rock radio – A listed on Planet Rock) the band has cemented their live reputation by supporting the likes of Cadillac 3, Reef, The Graveltones, Black Star Riders, Masters of Reality, Virginmarys and Thunders and festival appearances such as 2000 Trees, Download and Calling. The band’s unique blend of classic blues driven rock with a modern alternative twist winning them a legion of fans.

The band is pleased to announce they have now signed a deal with Nuclear Blast (home to acts such as Blues Pills and Black Star Riders) and they are currently putting the finishing touches to their anticipated debut album, which will be entitled ‘Fed To The Lions.’ The album is due for release in March 2016.
