Fresh off the back of sold out shows in the US, UK and Europe, today The Jungle Giants blast back into our ears with fresh new track 'Heavy Hearted'. The single comes along with an announcement of a huge national tour that will see the band take their electrifying live show around the country.

Written, produced, recorded and engineered by lead singer, songwriter, and guitarist Sam Hales, 'Heavy Hearted' melds the infectious energy The Jungle Giants are renowned for with driving beats and hypnotic accents. The band will be doing a special release of 'Heavy Hearted' on 7" vinyl, available at all shows (and online down the track).

Sam Hales said 'Heavy Hearted' has been with me as an instrumental track for so long that I’d forgotten the title a bunch of times and nearly lost it in my sessions. That bass line and beat would always creep its way back into my mind though. It's been a sweet journey watching the track grow and it just feels right to share it. It’s also been a chance for me to play around with some of my production tricks so that’s a little bonus."

Sydney DJ Adi Toohey will bring her mixes of jazzy house, boogie and subterranean club music along to all shows, ensuring that the dance floor is heaving and the room filled up with all the party feels before The Jungle Giants take to the stage.

The Jungle Giants are still on a career-high from third album Quiet Ferocity, which produced one ARIA-certified Platinum single 'Feel The Way I Do' and three ARIA-certified Gold singles in 'Used To Be In Love', 'Bad Dream' and 'On Your Way Down'.

Produced by Hales, the album pushed The Jungle Giants' catalogue to well over 130 million streams, topped numerous 2017 Best Of lists, and landed at #7 on triple j listeners Top 10 Albums of 2017. Completely funded by Sam, Cesira, Andrew and Keelan, the album also saw the band share the Air Award for Best Independent Album, complete two huge sold out national tours, and deliver electric sets at a raft of festivals including Splendour in the Grass, Falls Festival, Groovin the Moo, Yours and Owls, and many more.
