“You can‘t put a price on self-belief, and Tax The Heat sound so utterly self-assured on this follow-up to their well-received debut Fed To The Lions, you get the feeling that, for them, success is not only inevitable, it‘s already here…With a nod of deference to the past grand masters and a thoroughly modern outlook, Tax The Heat are perfectly placed to reintroduce unadulterated classic rock for the next generation.”- Classic Rock
“Proper feel-good rock that will have your foot tapping and the chorus lyrics burned into your hippocampus for decades to come. This stuff forces a smile and a bounce in your step! If you like your rock with a little-added roll, this might be just up your street. A fun, uncomplicated and compelling rock record.”- Louder Than War
“The band’s unconventional twist on classic rock makes for some of the record’s high points: “Playing With Fire” sounds like Iron Maiden with added pop nous, and the thrilling staccato robot rock of “My Headspace” recalls latter-day Queens Of The Stone Age.” – Planet Rock

“Change Your Position” was the follow up to the 2016 critically-acclaimed debut album “Fed To The Lions”. The new album sees the band take a huge step forward as both songwriters and performers. The band’s unique blend of fuzz-driven rock with a modern alternative twist has won them a legion of fans. The album stamps its authority from the offset with the taut “Money In the Bank” (also the first single). From the staccato stomp of “Playing With Fire” to the huge riffs of “Cut Your Chains”, from the garage rock of “On The Run” to the slow groove and instant lyrical hit of “All That Medicine”. “Change Your Position” is a lean, focused album loaded with an energy that is set to propel the band to headline status. The driving rhythms of Jack Taylor (Drums) and Antonio Angotti (Bass) are overlaid with the powerful riffs of JP Jacyshyn (Guitars) and distinctive melodies of Alex Veale (Vocals, Guitars).
From humble beginnings in 2015, Tax The Heat have become one of the most notable of new British rock acts. Multiple singles playlisted across radio in both 2015 and 2016 – taken from debut album “Fed To The Lions”. The band also honed their live craft supporting the likes Cadillac 3, Reef, The Graveltones, Black Star Riders, Vintage Trouble, Masters Of Reality, Virginmarys, Thunder and festival appearances such as 2000 Trees, Beautiful Days, Download, Calling and Ramblin’ Man Fair.
