Heavy on the Ride are a three piece experimental heavy rock band hailing from Swansea, Wales, UK.
With a blatant disrespect for specific genre tags the band moves from different concoctions of Mastodon and Melvins styled
downtuned grooves to a barrage of QOTSA influenced riffs.
Since forming in April of 2009 the band have released a debut EP titled "Delaying the Inevitable" and a second EP titled "Different Animals" in September 2014 with a UK tour in support of it.
The band disbanded in 2015 but re-grouped with new drummer Sean Mahoney in 2017 with plans to start playing shows and finishing the debut album.
Since forming the band has played with members of Queens of the Stone Age, Eagles of Death Metal, The Mars Volta and White Zombie, as well as The Subways, Japanese rock trio Electric Eel Shock and rising bands such as Empress A.D. and Black Moth.
