We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Heavy Mantle‘s infectious new song “Eyes Wide Open” (listen below), track taken from their new album Weights & Measures, scheduled to be released on September 21th via Tor Johnson Records.
“‘Eyes Wide Open’ was about becoming a father. It was an awakening. Suddenly, I was responsible for keeping this new helpless person alive. It happens so fast and every day seemed like a new experience. It made me see the world from a different perspective” – comments Billy Thompson (vocals/guitar).”
Conceived in Baton Rouge by Secret Smoker’s Billy Thompson (guitar/vocals), after recruiting Brian Domingue (bass & backups) and Zach Smotherman (drums), the three quickly wrote a collection of four songs that landed on a demo back in 2015. Three years later and they’ve done about 10,000 miles of road, and are ready to unleash their upcoming full-length album, Weights & Measures.
Heavy Mantle’s new effort arrives on September 21th via Tor Johnson Records, pre-order the album here.
