about

Ratchet Blade Records is proud to announce the release of MISERY AND GIN, the latest EP from the Heathen Apostles, available for purchase on July 22, 2016.

Recorded in tribute to the late, great Merle Haggard, MISERY AND GIN features a duo of covers from the iconic outlaw country legend's catalog, the gender-bent brawler "Gonna Break Every Heart I Can" as well as the titular bawler "Misery and Gin" (featuring a lush orchestral arrangement that pays homage to the classic country ballads of the 1970s.) The EP is equally timeless as it is true to the Heathens' unique aesthetic that has been crafted since the release of their debut album BOOT HILL HYMNAL.

No Heathen Apostles album would be complete without a jab at convention- to this effect, MISERY AND GIN contains an off-the-wall remix of "Gonna Break Every Heart I Can" by New York sonic mixologist Almighty Watching. The EP is expertly produced by Chopper Franklin and mastered by punk bastion Geza X.

That is one hell of a lineup. ... more
