Tax The Heat cap off an extremely successful 2018 announcing a series of UK dates in April 2019 as special guest to the legendary Mott The Hoople. In addition, following the release of their new album “Change Your Position” earlier this year, the band is ready to hit the road in December 2018 with a five-date UK tour.
Vocalist/Guitarist Alex Veale says: “Tax The Heat opening for Mott The Hoople, what a surreal and brilliant thing to be asked to do! Their influence in rock n roll is so apparent. It’s the 45 anniversary of their ‘74 tour which they asked Queen to open up for them, which well and truly set them on their way… They clearly have taste and if we can follow in those footsteps we’ll be more than happy. It’s going to be an honour and privilege. Bring on April!”

“Change Your Position” was the follow up to the 2016 critically-acclaimed debut album “Fed To The Lions”. The new album sees the band take a huge step forward as both songwriters and performers. The band’s unique blend of fuzz-driven rock with a modern alternative twist has won them a legion of fans. The album stamps its authority from the offset with the taut “Money In the Bank” (also the first single). From the staccato stomp of “Playing With Fire” to the huge riffs of “Cut Your Chains”, from the garage rock of “On The Run” to the slow groove and instant lyrical hit of “All That Medicine”. “Change Your Position” is a lean, focused album loaded with an energy that is set to propel the band to headline status. The driving rhythms of Jack Taylor (Drums) and Antonio Angotti (Bass) are overlaid with the powerful riffs of JP Jacyshyn (Guitars) and distinctive melodies of Alex Veale (Vocals, Guitars).
