The Jungle Giants are set to take their electrifying live show on the road in support of high rotation single Heavy Hearted and today release a shapeshifting new video for the song. The clip is directed by Berlin-based Schall and Schnabel, video collaborators for the band’s songs Used To Be In Love and Bad Dream. It arrives as The Jungle Giants announce their local supports for each show of ‘The Heavy Hearted Tour’.
The band encourage people to get down early as Adi Toohey and local DJs at every event will whip up the party atmosphere. The local DJs are:
Thurs: Toni Yotzi
Fri: Emma Stevenson
Lam Savers [DJ set]
Fri: A Love Supreme DJs
Sat: Penelope Two-Five
Fri: Lex Deluxe
Today also sees the release of the first of four international remixes of Heavy Hearted. The remix by Dutch electronic duo Fouk (Kraak and Smaak, Luke Million, Joey Negro) brings a deep house groove, evoking the feeling of sunset cocktails by the pool.
Further remixes will come from UK rave legend Greg Wilson and his son Ché, Gerd Janson of German label Running Back and Amsterdam’s dark prince of the night Nachtbraker. The remixes will unfold over the course of the tour. Stay tuned to your favourite streaming service for those.
This is the band’s biggest Australian tour to date with shows in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney sold out and second dates added in those cities. Hobart, Adelaide and Perth are selling fast.
Heavy Hearted was written, produced and recorded by lead singer, songwriter and guitarist Sam Hales and melds the infectious energy The Jungle Giants are renowned for with driving beats and hypnotic accents. A 7″ vinyl limited release of Heavy Hearted will be available at all shows and later online.
The Jungle Giants are still on a career high from third album ‘Quiet Ferocity,’ which produced the ARIA-certified Platinum single Feel The Way I Do and three ARIA-certified Gold singles in Used To Be In Love, Bad Dream and On Your Way Down.
