How did you come up with your video clip for learn to drown?
We had quite a few ideas, we didn't want to just have a band playing in a room, we started off with the idea, what is the camera was just in the room panning around, that capturing certain members doing things, then it escalated into the idea of it being one constant shot that didn't stop.
You toured with Black Star Riders can you tell us a tour story about hanging out with them?
They were really good to us and gave us some of our first experiences of touring, we went back out with them at the end of last year as well which was awesome.
If you could have any band play one of your songs which band would it be which song and in your style or theirs?
Nick Cave doing one of our songs.
You played it download last year what was your favourite experience playing there?
Download is one of the best festivals, it caters to everybody, it's predominantly a heavy metal festival but I just think it's a rock festival.
how did you come to get signed by Nuclear Blast?
when it came to the point that we were looking for a record deal, there were a few different names and labels that were discussed, nuclear blast isn't an obvious choice for a band like tax the heat, they really liked what we did and that surprised us in a way, nuclear blast are committed and believe in their artists, they push you in the right direction.
