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 Memphis Minnie, the HEATHEN APOSTLES have created a style of music that at once conjurs 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 debut album, 2013’s Boot Hill Hymnal, 2014’s Without A Trace EP, 2015’s Fool’s Gold, Fist City and Death’s Head singles, as well as their second album Fire to the Fuse have all been released on Ratchet Blade Records. The third Heathen Apostles album Requiem For A Remix (featuring remixes by Chopper Franklin, Almighty Watching and the Phantom of the Black Hills, as well as corresponding videos), the Misery and Gin EP (a tribute to the late, great Merle Haggard) and the single and video for Albatross came out in a busy 2016.
The latest single and video is for Strange Flowers, and a slate of music and video releases for 2017, along with several other multi-media projects, check http://www.heathenapostles.com for updates and news.
