They’ll also be playing a homecoming Bristol show as part of Jäger Curtain Call!

Kicking off your week like the Bristol legends they are, Heavy Lungs have announced their brand new EP and a tour!

Released via Balley Records on 10th October, their new record ‘Measure’ is the punk band’s third EP and we’re already calling it as their best yet. “’Measure’ centres around the undeniable importance of self-worth,” explains frontman Danny Nedelko. “From inner observation of myself and of the people around me over the course of past year, I’ve noticed that it can sometimes very much be neglected. The purpose of this EP is to hopefully remind us to value ourselves and grow more comfortable in our skin - to believe in ourselves. Our own inner strength and capabilities are vastly superior to our own perception of them.”

To celebrate the release, the four-piece will also be heading out on tour around the UK and Europe, finishing with a homecoming Bristol show that we’re putting on as part of our Jäger Curtain Call series! Grab your tickets to here or here.
