The Heavy North announce live album launch shows and film screenings

Liverpool blues rock band The Heavy North are set to release its first-ever live album ‘Fire In The Furnace’ on Friday, 2nd August, recorded at the band’s hometown 12-piece band show at the Camp and Furnace in December 2023.

Formed in 2018, The Heavy North released their critically-acclaimed debut album ‘Electric Soul Machine’ in 2022 and last year’s follow-up album ‘Delta Shakedown’ marked the band’s first UK Official Charts release.

The band is made up of frontman Kenny Stuart, guitarist and producer Jose Ibanez, bass player Andrew Horrocks, guitarist Jack Birch, keyboard player Ste Penn and drummer Mark Rice

In recent years The Heavy North’s sound has caught the attention of BBC 6 MusicRadio XAmazing RadioBBC IntroducingClassic Rock Magazine and Tim’s Twitter Listening Party – alongside legendary actor and new music champion Robert Carlyle describing the band as “Absolutely brilliant!”

The band’s hometown show at the Camp and Furnace last year saw The Heavy North perform tracks from their two studio albums with a string quartet, a brass section and backing singers for their biggest show to date. 

As a preview to the upcoming live album and film, The Heavy North have already released two singles from the album in recent weeks – ‘The Genie (Live)’ and more recently ‘Don’t Need Money (Live)’.

The Heavy North frontman Kenny Stuart said:

“We’ve built a community of fans and followers who travel from all over the place to come to our gigs, a bit like the crowd we had at the Camp and Furnace show last year.” 

“We’ve had a lot of friends recommending us to other people and saying ‘these sound great, but you need to see them live!’ so hopefully this live album will be a good introduction for new listeners”

The Heavy North have also announced the release of the full-length ‘Fire In The Furnace’ concert film to accompany the upcoming debut live album. 

Fans of the blues rock six-piece can watch the full 90-minute ‘Fire In The Furnace’ film at one of three special screening events scheduled at FACT in Liverpool on Wednesday 31st July (6pm & 8.15pm) and London’s Soho Screening Rooms on Thursday 1st August (7.30pm). 

Discussing the accompanying ‘Fire In The Furnace’ film, Kenny said: 

“We’re made up to be able to release the full-length video from the night too, and thanks to Jade and the team at Green Frog Productions for capturing the whole 90-minute show for us” 

“The film screenings will be a chance for our fans to come together and listen to our debut live album ahead of the release whilst watching the tracks being performed on the big screen.” 

To celebrate the release of ‘Fire In The Furnace’ The Heavy North are also set to play two full band performances and album signings during release week. 

The band will be hosting an album launch party at The Met in Bury with Wax and Beans Records on Friday 2nd August followed by a full-band performance at the Jacaranda Records Baltic in Liverpool on Saturday 3rd August.
