Renegade soul-rockers The Heavy are back with the lead single "What Makes A Good Man?, taken from their new album, "The Glorious Dead", this gospel-soaked soul track was recently snatched up by Miller Beer for a North American ad campaign. The track follows in the footsteps of the band’s recent hit “How You Like Me Now?,” which achieved gold status, selling half a million copies. The song appeared everywhere from Entourage to The Fighter and saw David Letterman asking for an unprecedented encore of it. All of which has helped usher in much success stateside.

Talking of "The Glorious Dead," lead singer Swaby says... “It’s our third record, which is when you’re judged if you’re here to stay, or sliding off the face of the earth. We want to stick around, so we took our balls out and went for it.” “I love what we’ve done,” says Swaby. “We got our deadpan heartbreak down. This record suggests how we continue to walk among the dead – now just in a few more places, and with more of a swagger.”

The Glorious Dead proves The Heavy’s most ambitious effort yet....
