TAX THE HEAT Release Lyric Video For “Stood On The Platform To Leave”

Bristol’s classic rockers with a modern roll, TAX THE HEAT, released their full length Nuclear Blast Entertainment debut, Fed To The Lions back in April this year. Last week marked the release of a new single and lyric video, entitled “Stood On The Platform To Leave.” The video is the creation of Louis Catlett for Rataplan Films.

The band commented:
“We are really excited to release ‘Stood On The Platform To Leave’ as the next single. It has all the key elements of a big TTH song – big riffs and a bigger chorus. We love playing this song live as it really brings the audience and the band together to feed off each other.”

Watch the official video for ‘Animals’ on Nuclear Blast YouTube Channel! It was created by Louis Catlett from Rataplan Films, who created the Fed To The Lions video too.

The band commented: “‘Animals’ is a great example of what our debut album has to offer, hard hitting, high energy rock and roll. We played around with the song for a while but it was when we were in the studio that we somehow landed on that big chorus riff, and the song suddenly made sense. We shot the video with a Bristol based company Rataplan, which was an easy video shoot for us – Louis (director) really captured the energy and vibe of the song.”
