Heavy Water - New Album "Dreams Of Yesterday".

Heavy Water, the lockdown project created by Saxon frontman Biff Byford and son Seb Byford, release their infectious new single ‘Another Day’. The song is the second single taken from the groove-saturated, riff-mighty, hip-shaking sophomore album titled Dreams of Yesterday, out this week via Silver Lining Music.


“The song is about writing songs, waiting for the inspiration to come…some days are good, other days are bad so you’re always waiting for another day hoping the song will appear... it can be quite spiritual when it happens!” explain Seb and Biff.

Not only does Dreams of Yesterday enjoy the tighter, sharper cohesion of being a second project, the bloodline flows freely in its creative arc, with Biff revelling in the role of collaborator with his son and Seb clearly enjoying himself. Pulling the experience, influence and craft of Biff and fusing it with some fresh twists invoking the likes of Led Zeppelin, Soundgarden, and Alice In Chains, Seb takes to both the guitar and producer’s chair with an effusive energy that crackles from every cut.

Whether it’s the bombastic, bodaciously thick melodic swamp-stomp of ‘Shadows of Life’, the spiky, punk-dipped guitar-driven ‘Another Day’, or the high-energy indie-tinged rock swirl of ‘Be My Saviour’, Dreams of Yesterday literally keeps you on your toes (air guitar in hand).


Seb Byford recorded Dreams of Yesterday at the Big Silver Barn in York, UK, with Jacky Lehmann mixing alongside Jamie Scarratt. Dreams of Yesterday is produced by Seb and Biff, with Biff taking up bass duties once more and sharing vocal duties with Seb, who throws down the big verses and plays the guitars with an effusive energy that crackles from every cut. At the same time, Tom Witts’s assured drumming provides the perfect platform for what is, essentially, a genre-less celebration of exciting, engaging yet wholly egoless music.


So rejoice and bathe in this Heavy Water immediately because Dreams of Yesterday never sounded more alive, fresh, and present.


"It’s not totally Grunge, and certainly not a traditional Classic Rock album – It is very modern”– Fireworks


“Such a modern and different sound”– Rock Hard Italy


“On Dreams Of Yesterday, father and son are real groovy like on ‘Don’t Take It For Granted’. This is superb song with great guitar riffs and the combination with bass. This album is highly recommendable of all friends of heavy rock music who need a variety Hardline


“The album surprises with lots of breaks: ‘Don’t Take It For Granted’ with great riffs, the bombastic ‘Shadows Of Life’ reminds me of the old Led Zeppelin and ‘Be My Saviour’ could have been also played by Motörhead”– Good Times


“On Dreams of Yesterday the old is mixing with the new but without trying to be too juvenile or too old. The ten songs are everlasting and show more emotion than anything else” – Classic Rock


“Modern sounding hard rock with grunge elements and classical hard rock. But more important: Heavy Water sounds like Heavy Water. It is more a fun project between father and son and not a ‘must-do’ project.” – Eclipsed


Dreams of Yesterday will be released this Friday September 29th 2023, via Silver Lining Music. Available as a CD Digipak, digital formats and D2C bundles. For pre-orders, go to this location.
