    label: Function

    Heroic Dose is the 2nd album from Leeds' These Monsters and the follow up to 2010's Call Me Dragon. Now a three piece following their saxophonist’s move to China their sound has evolved from freaked out riff-driven space prog force to a more grimy agressive speed fueled punk; the 6 minute, principally instrumental slabs of Sabbathesque riffage replaced with songs barely half that length that have more in common with other bands from the Leeds scene from which they emerged such as Pulled Apart By Horses and Hawk Eyes. The first single from the new album - Live Some - was playlisted on Radio One daytime last year and with the next single ‘When The Going Gets Weird’ out on 6th May and backed by a brilliant video by up and coming director Matt Green, 2013 promises to be a great year for These Monsters.
