Electrifying Bristolian rockers TAX THE HEAT recently spent the day at YouTube Space in London to record a live session. To celebrate kicking off their UK tour today, the band have released the first live video from that shoot. Watch the video for new single, ‘Cut Your Chains’.
“Cut Your Chains is all about being free and living your life. Do what ever the hell you like”, explains vocalist Alex Veale. ” When we first played it live it got the place jumping, I think there is something just fundamentally fun about the tune and people connect with that. When we spoke about the next single we decided to just do a live music video, no stories, overdubs, scripts or any of that bullshit just us playing this little tune. We were lucky enough to be working at YouTube and it all lined up.”
“If an album is about capturing a band or artist at a certain point, ‘Change Your Position’ might have happened at the perfect time. As a band we toured, found our sound, found our place and took inspiration from a world in utter chaos. With ‘Change Your Position’ we pushed ourselves creatively as hard as we could and it took us further into ourselves than we expected – we hope it’s apparent to the listener.” – Alex Veale
