Who are Heavy Young Heathens?
Heavy Young Heathens, a duo made up of brothers Aron and Robert have been making music together in bands their whole lives. Feeling change in the air, they decided to do things a little bit off the beaten path they had become accustomed to, and they decided to record as a duo of just bass and drums. What at first felt odd to them quickly turned in to something that was more familiar then they could imagine.
The band was born right then and a few months later, a record was finished and a U.S tour was booked. Forced to forge the Do-it-Yourself path of record making, touring and merchandising the appeal and ethics of this group is infectious.
Heavy Young Heathens have had dream opportunities, seeing them supporting the likes of R.E.M. (personally invited the brothers to support In Austria), The Raveonettes & Autolux, Violent Femmes, Ben Kenney of Incubus/The Roots, and playing the main stage of Germany’s Rock-am-Ring/Rock-im-Park.
Over the last year, their following has been built strictly upon word of mouth and their ambitious Myspace activity. 2009 will see HYH release their debut full Length LP and put them back out on all the stages across the country. Upon hearing the first few cuts from HYH’s self-released EP. Heavy Young Heathens are sure to be one of the bands to watch in 2009 coming out of the great Southern California city.
