This fall, The Heavy Heavy will head from their home of Brighton, UK to the US for the very first time, to headline a fall tour of more than 30 shows announced today.

In addition to a stint at Nashville’s AmericanaFest, plus dates with new labelmates Black Pumas and St. Paul and The Broken Bones, the extensive run of performances will stretch from coast to coast.

The run includes dates at New York’s Mercury Lounge on September 28, Los Angeles’ Troubadour on October 24, as well as stops in DC, Philadelphia, Chicago, Austin, San Francisco, and dozens more through November. Tickets are on sale this Friday, June 17.

Led by the kindred spirits of Will Turner and Georgie Fuller, The Heavy Heavy has recently expanded to a five-piece lineup with an even more effusive and unfettered sound, which is put on full display in the music video for the brand new, summer highway-ready single, “Miles and Miles,” which is featured on the expanded edition of their EP, Life And Life Only. Racking up six-figure views in less than seven days after its release, “it finds The Heavy Heavy at their most immediate and instantly-satisfying” (BrooklynVegan).
