Heathen Apostles - Gothic AmericanaBorn of the voices of past lives and baptized in the dust bowl dirt, the Gothic Americana music of the Heathen Apostles bellower (Mather Louth [Radio Noir], Chopper Franklin [The Cramps, Nick Curran & the Lowlifes], Thomas Lorioux [Kings of Nuthin’] and Luis Mascaro) harkens back to a bygone chapter of American history. Using contrasting influences such as Bauhaus, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds and The Pogues along with Howlin’ Wolf, Loretta Lynn (the band covers her classic Fist City) and Bessie Smith, the Heathen Apostles have created a style of music that at once conjures both angels and demons, and will enlighten a darkened soul.

Gothic Americana is a genre that is fast taking hold around the world, in that it combines the sub-genres of gothic country & bluegrass, dark blues, murderfolk and depression-era jazz. The Heathen Apostles are amongst the first to inject all three into their incendiary music.
