About Reverend and the Makers

Fusing indie rock melody and attitude with dance rhythm, Reverend & the Makers were formed in 2005 by vocalist and songwriter Jon McClure. The Sheffield, England act's rousing debut single, "Heavyweight Champion of the World," breached the U.K. Top Ten in 2007, simultaneously kicking off a run of four indie chart number ones that each became alt-rock radio playlist staples in their home country. During the next ten years -- from 2007's The State of Things to 2017's The Death of a King -- they sent six albums in a row into the U.K. Top 20. Following a six-year hiatus, 2023 brought a seventh album, the R&B-inspired Heatwave in the Cold North.
