Standing Sun LIVE presents

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 Memphis Minnie, 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, Stevyn Grey on drums, Viktor Phoenix on banjo & mandolin 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. 2015’s Fool’s Gold and Death’s Head singles, as well as 2014’s Without A Trace EP, and their debut album, 2013’s Boot Hill Hymnal have all been released on Ratchet Blade Records. Their second album Fire to the Fuse is out now along with their third single and music video of 2015, Loretta Lynn’s Fist City.

2016 has seen the release of the Heathen Apostles third album Requiem For A Remix(featuring remixes by Chopper Franklin, Almighty Watching and the Phantom of the Black Hills) as well as a corresponding music video or Murderer of Souls (Chopper Franklin remix)and their latest release the Misery and Gin EP, a tribute to the late, great Merle Haggard. There is already a slate of music and video releases for the second half of 2016, along with several other multi-media projects, check back often for updates and news.
