The line-up of this band, drawn from cream of the psychedelic rock and Americana scenes of the past 20 years, speaks volumes.

Which is why US-based five-piece One Eleven Heavy is picking up quite a bit of traction even prior to the release of its debut album, Everything's Better, in September.

MOJO called the band, 'Royal Trux meets Workingman's Dead-era Grateful Dead'. Shindig proclaimed, 'We dig One Eleven Heavy!' Uncut featured the band's debut single, 'Old Hope Chest', on its most recent playlist.

And Raven Sings The Blues said the band, 'taps into a collective consciousness of what was actually “classic” about rock, without being dictated by what was pressed, sold or spun through the static crackle of radio. This echoes the ’72-’74-era Grateful Dead as it was lived in the room, and not as it was felt from the runout.'

Everything's Better was recorded by Jon Morand (Black Crowes) in Richmond, VA and will be released on New Jersey imprint Kith & Kin, headed up by former MTV 120 Minutes producer and WFMU DJ Scott McDowell.

The band's second single, «Dawson Lane», is set to be debuted on the NPR network in the USA in the coming weeks to a listenership of 14.9 million people.

But, for now, if you're in any doubt as to the jam potential of One Eleven Heavy, check out their debut single, «Old Hope Chest», which stretches out into some of the deeper psychedelic zones set to wax in recent times before leaping back into its lolloping Deadhead rhythm.
