HEAVE BLOOD & DIE
Heave Blood & Die has made great strides in the years since its inception in Tromsø. From being hailed by national radio as one of the most exciting new bands in Norway, to play big festivals like Øya festivalen and Roskilde, before they in 2022 they were nominated for Spellemann for their third album "Post People" released on Fysisk Format, February 2022.Furthermore, they have taken the album on the road, with appearances at SXSW Digital,Norway tour with Kvelertak, a couple trips to Denmark and the Reeperbahn festival in Germany.
The album is ambitious on the border of the utopian, yet catchy. And is described by the band themselves as "the sound of imperialism laying brick by brick on the collapse of modern society". A panoramic mourning march that fires off some of the same inner explosions as The Cure, My Bloody Valentine and Killing Joke at their most magnificent.
