Heavy Glow has confirmed a full north American headlining tour, set to begin this Thursday (September 18th) in Ft. Worth. The tour is in support of the group’s new album Pearls & Swine and Everything Fine. I liked what I heard earlier in the year and had the chance to do an email interview with the band (which you can see here), and if they’re coming through your area I’d recommend going to check them out.

Electric San Diego rock band HEAVY GLOW has announced a North American headlining tour in support of its new LP Pearls & Swine and Everything Fine. Set to kick off on September 18 in Fort Worth, Texas, the 18 city jaunt will showcase the trio’s unhinged explosiveness, which blends post-millennial blues-rock and haunting, Mowtown-esque hard soul, calling for comparison to The Dead Weather, The Black Keys, Afghan Whigs and Cream.

Led by guitarist / vocalist Jared Mullins, HEAVY GLOW has been called “a bluesy slice of Free-meets-Grand Funk” and “an impressive Hendrix / ZZ Top hybrid that pays homage to other blues masters (Clapton, Cray) and modern-day fuzz tone titans.” Recorded with producers Michael Patterson (Nine Inch Nails, Puscifer) and Nic Jodoin (Spindrift, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club), Pearls & Swine and Everything Fine has been hailed as “blistering” and has yielded the crunching cuts “Headhunter” and “Look What You’re Doing to Me”; the latter track’s music video starring actress Mayra Leal of the Robert Rodriguez film “Machete.”

“The shredding guitar licks that reverberate over the course of this album suggest these guys could have a future as Guitar Hero spokesmen.” – CLEVELAND SCENE

“If you’re a straight-up psych-rock fan who shuns frills, then L.A.’s Heavy Glow may be right up your alley. Following up their debut “Midnight Moan,” Jared Mullins, Joe Brooks and Michael Amster continue to infuse blues-heavy guitar riffs into songs that are heavy on the swagger and grit, like their 7-inch B-side “Headhunter”…shredding is only part of the heavy drive they possess.” – BUZZ BANDS LA
