Heiress, the Seattle band featuring former members of Himsa, Undertow, Jough Dawn Baker, and Shift, will release a new album in the new year.
It’ll be called Of Great Sorrow and will contain 10 crushing tracks that will grab you by the throat and squeeze for 44 jarring minutes.
Basically, this music is liable to kill you.
Heiress performs a cathartic blend of hardcore punk and atmospheric post-metal. They formed in 2006 and have issued several studio outings and splits.
The new one was recorded with Tad Doyle at Witch Ape Studio and will drop on February 10 via The Mylene Sheath (Pelican, Caspian, Junius).
The album was mastered by Chris Hanzsek (Soundgarden, Melvins, Screaming Trees) with artwork once again handled by Demian Johnston.
Believe it or not, the band is already tracking a third album with producer Matt Bayles, which is set for release later on in 2015.
