Alt-pop/rock trio, Heavy Static, release the track, “An Evil That Hides,” from their forthcoming EP, Here Comes the Fear, due out this Summer. A band for only two years, Heavy Static have already been named “Artist of the Month” by The Deli Magazine Toronto. LISTEN TO “AN EVIL THAT HIDES”
Frontman Christian Patrick (lead vocals/guitar) was sick of “Indie rock” bands writing songs lacking style and soul. He wrote ten songs in ten days before calling on James Young (drums/backing vocals) and Dave Vasey (bass/backing vocals) to bring the songs to life. The band stems from ‘70s icons, including The Cure, Ziggy Stardust-era Bowie and The Clash, Swedish pop, ‘80s horror movies (specifically 1981 Canadian slasher, My Bloody Valentine) and modern day rockers, The Darkness and The Hives. Here Comes the Fear will be the band’s second EP, following 5-track EP, Face The Night (May 2015), singing songs about heartbreak, anxiety and finding one’s place in the world.
Tearing through Toronto, Heavy Static have performed at Lee’s Palace, The Garrison, Dundas West Fest 2015 and Tranzac Club. They plan to reach new audiences by touring to previously uncharted areas with the release Here Comes the Fear.
