Brand New EP + Music Video Coming February 18th!

We are happy to announce our long awaited self titled Ep will be released on February 18, 2017. 
We have been hard at work getting the new music ready for you and the whole experience has been extremely fulfilling. Working with producer Jeff Martin (The Tea Party) on this project and having his input and wisdom go into each song really helped the band to mature our sound.

BONUS! We will also be releasing a brand new music video for our first single Human Condition on the same day.


All of this is happening on February 18th when we kick off our run of shows opening for The Tea Party on their 20 Years of Transmission Canadian Tour. 
Check out our dates  on our tour calendar. 

The Road Heavy On Tour With The Tea Party in February

February 18th is fast approaching and we are getting ready for what is sure to be an amazing experience performing with Canadian rock trio The Tea Party on their 20 years of Transmission tour.

We're in the studio rehearsing the new material from our upcoming Ep (untitled) and making sure everything is sounding great and making sure we have the best show possible for you. 
The new Ep will be available on disc at all TTP shows. 

Get tickets here.

Gilby Clarke and The Road Heavy

What a blast we had touring around for 4 days with our pal Gilby Clarke. 
Nothing feels better than driving from one end of the province to the other playing shows with a real rock n roll legend. Best part is, he's a really awesome guy!

We met Gilby 2 years ago when we opened for him on his Canadian East Coast Tour and we all became fast friends. So when Gilby wanted to come back to Canada we got the call and we were pumped.
We spent four days performing and meeting new fans while getting the experience of hanging with the Gilby Clarke Band.

Can't wait to get back on the road soon. 
Stay tuned for some BIG news.

You never know who you will run into at a Gilby Clarke and TRH Show!

The Road Heavy and Gilby Clarke

We are excited to announce that The Road Heavy will be joining Gilby Clarke (Guns N Roses) for a few dates this September when he comes to Canada.  

Two years ago TRH went out on our first tour with Gilby and he really helped set the tone and direction of the band.  

We can't wait to hit some stages with him and rock out with all of you.  

Theres even a special hometown show for us in Newmarket, so you know it's gonna be jammed! 

see you there🤘

Recording at Metalworks with Producer Jeff Martin

Well, we just wrapped up the recording of our new EP (untitled) and now it's time for mixing. We can't wait to share it with all of you! 

Working with a pro like Jeff Martin (The Tea Party) was such an amazing experience for all of us, especially me. I grew up listening to TTP and to now be in studio with a songwriter whom I respect so much is mind blowing. 

The new EP is sounding massive and has a real vintage vibe about it. We definitely pushed ourselves to reach the sound we were aiming for and we're so glad we didn't rush it.

Look out for new material in the Fall and listen closely as you might just hear some low vocal tones in the background. 

.....and maybe a little slide guitar.

Rock 95 Local & Loud 2015 WINNERS

In 2015 The Road Heavy entered in the Rock 95 Local & Loud contest and through hard work and determination (and a little luck) managed to take home the top spot and win a whole crap ton of prizes!
Here we are chatting with Randy Richards on air at Rock 95

Later that year just before we left on our second Canadian East Coast tour we recorded this track with out winnings. 
You may recall this little number...
