The Heavy Pets will release their fourth studio album, Strawberry Mansion, on February 23. Recorded in South Florida over the course of 2017, the self-produced double LP is the culmination of twelve years of writing and touring, presenting the band’s refined songcraft and musical versatility in peak form. These ten songs are the truest representation of the sound they have become known for, distilling elements of rock, funk and reggae into a style that is unmistakable.
The group called upon a rich pool of homegrown talent to bring this album to fruition. Strawberry Mansion was recorded and mixed at Tony Bongiovi’s legendary Power Station studios in Pompano Beach, utilizing a dizzying array of priceless analog gear, with engineer and co-producer Paul Kronk. The album features guest appearances by Miami sacred steel master Roosevelt Collier, Surfer Blood guitarist Mike McCleary, and Fusik saxophonist Rob Smiley. This is the sound of South Florida.
The band plans to celebrate the occasion with a blowout release party at the Culture Room in Fort Lauderdale. Copies of the stunning vinyl double LP will be available at the show and from their online store. The Heavy Pets will tour extensively throughout the year in support of the new record, beginning with a March Colorado run and a northeast Spring Tour.
