Words and photo by BETTER THINGS.

With over 5,000 new miles and 76 hours of driving under it’s belt, Heavy 3 has returned to Vermont. Better Things (alt-punk/emo from Burlington) spent the last two weeks hitting the road for the opportunity to play shows in New York, DC, South Carolina, Florida, Alabama, Texas (for SXSW), and more. It was the first major leg of our “Getting Worse” tour to support the release of our first full-length album of the same name.

To say it was incredible is an understatement, as this tour was unfathomable in terms of scale and experience. Through back roads in Florida, streets of new and old cities, and being closer to the west coast than home, the ’99 Ford E350 provided by Big Heavy World provided a steady forward pace for us.

Today, we are releasing the first music video and single from ‘Getting Worse’ – “25 Miles Per Hour Blues.” This music video is self-produced, and the first in a series of music videos for this album in which we’ll be collaborating with multiple local videographers. It was made possible by Big Heavy World and Burlington College, which generously allowed us to shoot on their property.
