Manchester band Heavy Salad will headline at Manchester’s Night and Day, with the Manchester gig one of 11 dates they are playing on their UK tour.

The tour follows the release of their latest single Joggers From Mossley To Malibu Beach.  The single came to life when guitarist Rob Glennie noticed the number of people jogging to cope with the initial COVID lockdown in his hometown of Mossley.  As Heavy Salad frontman Lee Mann explains, “The story of ‘Joggers…’ sees our protagonist embrace jogging as a means of getting out of the house, but their world is changed through what starts as a way of coping with the lockdown that then blossoms into the realisation that there’s a whole world out there! Their journey eventually leads them to a new life in California inspired by the song’s melodic, West Coast feel.”

The single features on the band’s upcoming second album Long Wave.  The album is the follow-up to their debut Cult CasualLong Wave found Heavy Salad collaborating with producer Stephen Street and A Certain Ratio’s Christophe Bride.  “Working with Stephen Street was a dream come true for Heavy Salad” adds Lee, “he instantly recognised the band’s knack for a killer hook and a guitar player who does things differently! Having worked with some of the most distinctive guitarists in British rock, Stephen can now add Rob Glennie to his illustrious list of collaborators.”

Heavy Salad recently release the single Psilocyberman.
