The Heathen Apostles have had to postpone two tours and several shows this year due to COVID 19, and have taken a break from recording their upcoming Bloodgrass Vol. III EP to put out a special Southern Gothic EP release. 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” in Echo Park, California, and the band knows that while nothing can replicate playing in front of a fanatical audience, they really poured themselves into these songs.
The Heathens will be releasing four videos from the performance, the first (Without A Trace) coming out today, which is also the day Ratchet Blade Records launches the pre sale for the Prayers Before The Plague EP. You can preview the pre sale and order it by clicking HERE.
“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,” the band says. “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.”
