Heathen Apostles / Bio

Born of the voices of past lives and baptized in the dust bowl dirt, the gothic roots music of the HEATHEN APOSTLES harkens back to a bygone chapter of American history while firmly keeping one foot planted in the present-day city of Los Angeles.

Crossing paths at a mutual friend’s gathering one Indian summer evening, punk rock veteran Chopper Franklin (The Cramps, Nick Curran & the Lowlifes, Mau Maus) and femme fatale bellower Mather Louth (Radio Noir, Danny B Harvey), 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 the upright bass.

The first Heathen Apostles single, “Dark Was The Night”, captures the essence of the Heathen Apostles modus operandi: Southern gothic imagery surrounded by haunting, minor-chord melodies, helmed by the voice of a evocative Indigo child, unstuck in time. A full length album is set for release on Ratchet Blade Records in the Summer of 2013.
