The Big Heavy van toured to the west coast and back with Unrestrained, Anchor, and The River Card this winter. Following this tour and time on the road with Crucial Times and Listen to the Sky, Vermont bands have put 23,000+ miles on the Big Heavy World van so far.

ANCHOR: Hailing from the metal and hardcore hotbed of Sweden, Anchor bring a heavy, aggressive hardcore sound with howled vocals and devastating mosh parts, but not without its speed and urgency, taking cues from bands like Judge, Strife, Skitsystem and Verse."

THE RIVER CARD: "Formed in Stoke-on-Trent at the end of 2005, The River Card are a melodic hardcore band that has shared a stage with the likes of Hatebreed, Killing The Dream, Set Your Goals, Grave Maker, Have Heart, Miles Away, Bane, Down To Nothing, Blacklisted, Parkway Drive, Your Demise, Verse, Another Breath, Dead Swans, Reign Supreme, Cruel Hand, Ruiner, Unrestrained and Dirty Money."

UNRESTRAINED: Socially conscious Burlington hardcore with raging live shows.
