- Crushed Heavy AmericA 3:10
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.
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 with Tinderbox Music including two appearances at SXSW, the Hard Rock Cafe, Boston & licensing with six major cable networks.
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 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. Follow Heavy AmericA on social media & visit their website to keep up with the band through 2021 & to know where they will be playing when performance restrictions are lifted.
