HEATHEN APOSTLES – Born of the voices of past lives and baptized in the dust bowl dirt, the Gothic Americana music of the Heathen Apostles harkens back to a bygone chapter of American history. Using contrasting influences such as Bauhaus, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds and The Pogues with Howlin’ Wolf, Loretta Lynn (the band covers her classic Fist City) and Bessie Smith, the Heathen Apostles have created a style of music that at once conjures both angels and demons, and will enlighten a darkened soul.
Crossing paths at a gathering one Indian summer evening, femme fatale bellower Mather Louth (Radio Noir) and rock n roll veteran Chopper Franklin (The Cramps, Nick Curran & the Lowlifes) quickly uncovered a mutual appreciation for murder balladry, Americana, and memento mori. It was not long before a collaboration that sought to marry these interests in a sonic landscape, the Heathen Apostles, surfaced. The landscape was further tilled with the addition of Thomas Lorioux (The Kings of Nuthin’) on bass and Luis Mascaro on violin.
The constant output of songs and videos capture the essence of the Heathen Apostles modus operandi: Southern Gothic imagery surrounded by haunting, minor-chord melodies, musical influences including Gothic Roots, Bluegrass, Blues, and Gypsy Jazz, all deftly bound together by the band’s dark and sometimes brooding sense of a bygone age. Their five albums, Boot Hill Hymnal, Fire to the Fuse, Requiem For A Remix, Bloodgrass Vol. I & II and Dust To Dust have all been released on Ratchet Blade Records, as well as eight EPs and nine singles (the darkly gothic The Fall EP was named the Best EP of 2018 by Folk n Rock Magazine). Their insane Gothic Noir music videos have caught the attention of all that have seen them, as they match the no-holds-barred intentions of the songs they support.
2019 brought Paradise Lost (a single to benefit the California wildfires), the Dust To Dust album and Born By Lightning, an EP that explores yet another facet of Gothic Americana: the blues. And after two wildly successful European tours (in 2018 and 2019) 2020 promises another European tour, as well as the release of the sixth Heathen Apostles album The Best of 7 Years, this time on Crazy Love Records.

Their Gothic Western EP "Prayers Before The Plague" was released this Halloween (2020) on Ratchet Blade Records. The songs were recorded, and filmed, live at the band’s headquarters/compound/home The Devil’s Doghouse in Echo Park, Ca., and it is produced and mixed by Chopper Franklin. While nothing can replicate playing in front of a fanatical audience, they really poured themselves into these songs.
The newest album, Bloodgrass Vol 3 & 4, got released on May 13, 2022. 2020 Was a year of loss, reflection, and reevaluation. Trying as the times were to have a trio of tour cancellations both stateside and abroad as the live music industry seemingly evaporated overnight, the Heathen Apostles did not let the unexpected gift of time go to waste. To the contrary, the band channeled the turbulent year’s events and its complex emotions into their music, and the result- BLOODGRASS VOL. 3 & 4- is a collection of songs at once timely as they are timeless.
