London’s Heel are so much more than a band, they are an all round musical experience and a former Band of the Day. The alt rock four piece are a serious force to be reckoned with; jam packed with raw energy, infectious grooves and guitar work that will make you headbang before you even know you’re doing it.
It is with great delight that Heel can announce their debut album, The Parts We Save, will be released on the 4th of March 2016.
This album is a paradox. It’s the sum of different people and their different experiences but its utterly singular in its meaning. It’s constructed from all the pieces of our past that we hide from the world as desperately as we show them. It was as torturous to make as it was euphoric. By making this album we lost something very important to us, but we couldn’t be more happy about it.

Formed in the winter of 2011 from song writing sessions between Daniel (guitar) and singer Margarita, Heel completed their line-up with the addition of Fred (bass) and Nick (drums). Heel immediately began working on their debut self-titled EP Produced by Justin Hill (Sikth), Heel’s debut is testament to the harmony created between performance, production and powerful song writing.
With the demand for Heel’s sound on the rise, the band returned to Justin Hill at Fortress Studios to begin work on their second EP. Building on the groove laden rawness of their debut but demonstrating an evolution in sound brought on by the effortless cohesion between band members. Titled Stranger Just The Same, this EP demonstrated Heel’s ability to fuse musicality, pop sensibility, with a straight edged rock.
