Alcopop! Records

Released 29.09.23







This is a big album in sound and outlook, it takes the Bristol punk ethos championed by good friends Idles to punky delinquent, even metal-esque, new heights. The actual Danny Nedelko heads up the sonic bludgeoning by the self aggrandised ‘loud band’ backed by musical pulverisers George Garrett, James Minchall and Oliver Southgate.

This is Heavy Lungs’ debut album and should be rightly hailed as a very strong start, coming off a run of champion EPs that have seen their sound develop at every step, rapidly maturing into an accomplished bunch of noisy buggers having fun, delivering vital, real stuff that simply must be seen with a hefty pair of ear plugs. They’ll be in Newcastle in October, get your best mosh on!
