High Hopes:
Tax The Heat

Supercharged rhythm n' bluesers are ready for their time in the sun – and Thunder storms.

“We’ve built this from nothing,” says Tax The Heat frontman Alex Veale. “We’ve done it the old-school way. It’s about being a live band; it’s not about being an overnight success.”

It would be nigh-on impossible to suggest that Veale has tasted glory without having put in the graft. After flirting with his big breakthrough for much of the late 2000s – fronting South West nearlymen The Operation – a chance meeting with an old friend from school, drummer Jack Taylor, put the wheels in motion for the formation of Tax The Heat. 

Tax The Heat support Thunder on March 12-14. For more information visit
