Nothing like a man (or men) in tights… watch the Gang of Thieves video for “Work Together,” premiering on Relix.

Read this Where Y’at Magazine feature on The Heavy Pets. “Each member has such a firm grasp of his instrument and it’s impossible to ignore, making them a pleasure to watch as well. They always have such big smiles when they groove and witness each other shred. Equally fun to watch are the reactions of the audience as THP transitions from face-melting climaxes into cool reggae that hits you over the head with contrast. The band has come a long way since 2005, with nothing but progress. Easily making a name for themselves as one of the most talented and refreshing groups on the jam scene. Jeff mentioned that their new record will be breaking ground October 19th.” Well said…

Happy September!
