Very cool that The Heavy are back.  Some of you got to know them thanks to their sleeper hit “How You Like Me Now?” from their last album The House That Dirt Built.  But if you’re like me, you fell in love with their standout track, “Short Change Hero,” which become iconic when it was used in the trailer for the Batman: Arkham City. As Kelvin Swaby sings, “This ain’t no place for no hero to call home.”  And those of you who’ve played Arkham City know just how appropriate that is.

The new album, The Glorious Dead, was released last week, and they’ll be kicking off their North American tour tonight with a performance on The Late Show with David Letterman!  Set your DVR’s!
