COMMENTS

Stylized as 'HeavyWeight'.

Hailing from the small overlooked town of Muscatine, IA, HeavyWeight started out as just a means for 5 guys to play music while holding down the basic adult juggling act of family and work. From what started out as a simple Facebook post from vocalist Nathan Regennitter looking to play with some local musicians turned into something a bit more after guitarist Jason Wieskamp and drummer Sam Koester were the first to throw their names into the hat. After one practice and call was placed to Matt Parrott with the invitation to take up the position of 2nd guitar player. After a few bass players, Scott Moomey settled in around the spring of 2014 and rounded out the rhythm section nicely.

With musical backgrounds ranging from rock to metal to the fast paced hardcore style to even doom metal, HeavyWeight molds all these sounds into something they feel they can call their own.

Nathan Regennitter on the 'Those Trees Have Arms' music video: "Our buddy that did the video from UV Films already had the actors and script written and wanted us to do a small part which turned out to be a much bigger part and more than we expected and into our video. I think the story line fits well to the song and very stoked on the final product."
