Heavyball are a hard rocking ska/indie band based in Leeds and London, playing around the UK and Ireland.
Formed in London in late 2011 when brothers Matt and Habs Salisbury and best friend Johnny Iball, all originally from Nottingham, began to play together. The band are named after a joke on Johnny's surname which can no longer be remembered.
In Spring 2012 Heavyball's line up was completed with the addition of Paris born Remy Rosengarten on lead guitar and keys. Remy, who has previously recorded with The Stereophonics and Babyshambles, adds a driving rock sound to Heavyball's ska heart.
Heavyball's first EP, 'Small Town Hero' was recorded in Huddersfield by legendary producer Dave Creffield (Embrace, The Kaiser Chiefs).
Heavyball's sound is sing along indie / ska. Their influences include Desmond Dekker, The Kingsmen, Fleetwood Mac and Shane Meadows.
All over London, Leeds and Cumbria. Heading to Ireland soon and Europe later this year.
Heavyball are made up of normal people with normal lives. No pretension, or fakery the band aim to share their experiences of real life and act as a voice for all those who are sick of talent show popstars who want the glory without the work.
