The Heat

The Heat is a high-energy punk rock band from Chicago. Last year, The Heat independently produced and released their debut EP titled Presents. The EP includes the single “Earthquake” which has an official video uploaded to Youtube.


With an E. P. released to the public in late August 2010 titled Presents, The Heat have been out promoting the E.P. around the Chicago area since its release. Inspired by melodies and thought provoking lyrical content, the upbeat band writes their own songs, drawing influences from a variety of local musical acts come and gone. The Heat is a midwest based band with members from both Michigan, Illinois, and New York. The Heat was recently featured in AMP Magazine’s October 5, 2010 press.

The Heat have been playing out and around Chicago at local venues such as Abbey Pub, Bottom Lounge, Ronny’s (RIP), Panchos, Memories, and The Mutiny. The Heat have also recorded their first ever music video in Andersonville this past July for their first single “Earthquake”. They are planning to record this winter and release their debut LP by June of 2012.
