The Heavy's embrace of sonic variety may help explain the wide generational appeal of its fanbase. Page (far right) says he’s been “struck by how diverse the age range is” at various shows. “There are kids as well as people in their 60s! It’s such a variety. Initially you’re thinking, “Why isn’t it full of young girls?!” -but we’re attracting more people. It’s a broader appeal, so hopefully that means a greater lifespan (for the band) as well.”
