Heavy AmericA - "Every genre of rock"
Boston power trio Heavy AmericA have been described as “every genre of rock”, a description Michael T. Seguin (lead vocals, guitar), Budd Lapham (bass, vocals) & Dan Fried (drums, vocals) hold dear. The band’s diverse blend of influences & years of experience have given way to a unique & broad rock sound. Placing them in a genre they can truly call their own & out of any convenient box.
“Modern listeners with a taste for classic sounds will be blown away by the music Heavy AmericA is producing.” - Jon Wright, Radio Airplay PR
“Heavy AmericA once again cherry picks styles from the past five decades of rock, highlighting their ability to work in multiple sub genres.” - Bob Smith, The Static Dive
Formed in 2014 during a friends recording session, Heavy AmericA released their self titled debut EP in 2015 followed by two singles in 2016, “Up For Air” & “Full Load Amps”, leading the way to their full length album ‘Now’ in 2017. The album’s single, “Pray For Me” would land the band a slot at the Matrix Music Festival & a Akademia Music Award for Best New Rock Song, achieving over one million views & streams worldwide. The single's success led to a masive college radio campaign for the album with Tinderbox Music including two appearances at SXSW & the Hard Rock Cafe, Boston. The next two years saw the releases of “Easy Killer” & “Motor Honey (Peace)” with a string of shows across New England & a Limelight Magazine nomination for Best Rock Band, Boston 2019. Amid the 2020 covid pandemic Heavy AmericA released their single “If You Care”, a song about depression, isolation & not giving up hope. It was the band’s first single to break 50k plays on Spotify in a month.
Even with shows on hold, Heavy AmericA intends on making 2021 a busy year for the band. Working with renowned radio promoter Matthew Ulanoff (Mercury, Maverick, Isotopia Records/ Concord Music Group) embarking on a national radio campaign & kicking off the new year with the release of “Generation Lame”, a politically charged rocker with an edgy video depicting the current times. Followed by “Tails” in early spring & more to be announced. Fans can expect live streaming to begin in 2021 with an emphasis on new material & video content creation.
