The Heavy Pets self-titled release was ranked in the top 10 studio albums of the year by the Huffington Post in 2010. The honor comes at the end of a highly successful year that saw both a new studio release and matching Vinyl album. The Heavy Pets will launch their first tour of the year on January 22nd with plans for an acoustic album later in 2011.
2010 was an extraordinary year for the Heavy Pets. The five piece band released their first studio recording (and coinciding vinyl album) since 2007 with burgeoning record label and Management Company, 102 Degrees. The highly acclaimed album has already received rave reviews across the nation in its short time on the market and with ample airplay the band is posed to reach great heights in 2011.
The project will set sail on their first tour of the year beginning on January 22nd including stops in Raliegh, Charleston, Poughkeepsie, Albany, Syracuse, Philadephia, New York City among others before returning to their home stomping grounds in sunny Florida.
