Prayers Before The Plague EP

by Heathen Apostles



The Heathen Apostles have had to postpone two tours and several shows this year due to COVID 19. The European tours have been rescheduled for May/June and September 2021, and in the meantime the band are pleased to announce the release of their new EP Prayers Before The Plague, out this Halloween on Ratchet Blade Records. It was recorded, and filmed, live at the band’s headquarters/compound/home “The Devil’s Doghouse”. While nothing can replicate playing in front of a fanatical audience, they really poured themselves into these songs.
The Heathens will be releasing three videos from the performance, the first (Without A Trace), followed by Death's Head and then Drowned in Trouble.
“It would mean a lot to us it if you could check it out and help support the band any way you can as we complete Bloodgrass Vol. III and finish booking these tours. We always appreciate when you spend your hard-earned cash to join us on this dark journey, especially now, as we realize times are tougher than usual.”

"If there is such a thing in the current fringe roots genre as a supergroup, it would certainly be the Los Angeles-based dark roots and gothic country band Heathen Apostles, who includes ex-members of Radio Noir (Mather Louth), The Cramps (Chopper Franklin), Kings of Nuthin’ (Thomas Lorioux) in its ranks. That is one hell of a lineup." - No Depression Magazine ... more
