Hey y'all!

Tonight we are super duper stoked to launch pre-orders for the newest full length from Seattle, WA's Heiress!! This thing is an straight-up beast, or as Decibel Magazine puts it in an upcoming feature in the next months issue, "absolutely enraged". Others are expressing similar sentiment, Svbterranean said in a review HERE, "It's simultaneously volcanic and reflective, bestial and tranquil. It's this Seattle band's crowning achievement". We couldn't agree more! It's an album that is impossible to classify in simple terms, there's no genre or sub-genre that sums it up easily. And that is one of the things that makes it so great, along with the suffocating, emotional intensity and killer production, this is certainly the new high-water mark in the Heiress catalog.

If you're not totally familiar with Heiress at this point, here's a couple great interviews that the bands vocalist did recently that can shed some light on the bands history, as well as the new album. A recent interview with No Clean Singing can be read HERE, and an interview with No Echo can be read HERE, respectively.

Tomorrow, Metal Sucks will be premiering a new track from the album, so stay tuned to our website and social media joints for links to that. The track is a bonafide crusher called Remains. It's the second track on the album, and really where the general tone of the record starts to reveal itself. So prepare thine self, for the day of reckoning cometh, shall ye be saved? SHALL YEEE????? Or something?

As far as LP packaging, you guys know how Heiress & Sheath do. On this sexy thang we opted for gatefold jackets with a matte lamination. Then spot gloss on the front and back covers, as well as inner panels. Here's a couple photos for reference:

So, as you can see, these are already in-house. So these will be shipping out as quickly as possible and you'll receive your copies WEEKS before it's official release :) Cool, huh?


Anyhow, now that you're all drooling and everything, you can scroll on down below to check out all the pre-order options, but for all you information-obsessed types (like us), you can read the bio here to memorize all the pertinent info! Lets get biographical!:

"Following their critically acclaimed full lengths Early Frost (2013, Deathwish Inc.) and Of Great Sorrow (2015, The Mylene Sheath), Seattle, WA's Heiress land the knockout blow with highly anticipated follow-up, Made Wrong. The album consists of 7 jarring tracks that are all at once their most explorative, experimental, and intense yet. Vocalist John Pettibone (former Himsa & Undertow frontman) sounds more maniacal than ever, offering up his trademark, madman intensity in fine form throughout the maelstrom. The bands sound has become even harder to classify, mixing elements of hardcore, metal, post-metal, post-rock and doom into a vehement cocktail of tension and release.

For those uninitiated, Heiress is an American rock band from Seattle, WA featuring former members of Himsa, Undertow, Jough Dawn Baker and Sharks Keep Moving. They formed in Seattle, WA in 2006 originally with vocalist Adam Paysse, the co-founder of Rome Plow Records. Then in December 2008 Pettibone took over Paysse's place as lead vocalist. With this lineup, Heiress recorded a five-song self-titled EP and self-released it in 2009. Soon after, in 2010, the band signed to Deathwish Inc., an independent hardcore record label that was co-founded by Jacob Bannon of Converge. The group's first release through the label was a split 7" with Narrows. In mid-2011, legendary producer Jack Endino (Nirvana, Mudhoney, Soundgraden) produced and engineered new Heiress tracks at Soundhouse Studios. Endino also remixed two previously recorded Heiress songs which were released as the Naysayer EP in 2012. The single featured artwork by Demian Johnston, who previously played with Pettibone in Undertow and Nineironspitfire, and was positively received by Alternative Press (4/5). Ten of the remaining tracks from this session became Heiress' full-length debut album titled Early Frost, released by Deathwish Inc. in early 2013 and received an 8/10 rating from Decibel Magazine.

The band then signed with The Mylene Sheath, and on February 10th, 2015, released their sophomore full length Of Great Sorrow, recorded with Tad Doyle at Witch Ape Studio (YOB, Lesbian, TAD). The album was mastered by Chris Hanzsek (Soundgarden, Melvins, Screaming Trees) with artwork once again handled by Demian Johnston. The vinyl quickly sold out during the pre-order for the album and the band went on to play a series of shows with XTRMST, a side project of AFI's Davey Havok & Jade Puget. The album was well received by press outlets such as Noisey and Decibel Magazine. Metal Sucks went on to say "Of Great Sorrow is the kind of record for which the use of the verb "crushing" as an adjective was invented". Even as the album was being released and promoted, the band was hard at work on its eventual follow-up, and their third full length, which brings us to the present.

Heiress now unleash "Made Wrong". Recorded with iconic producer Matt Bayles (Mastodon, ISIS, Botch, Pearl Jam), and once again mastered by Chris Hanzsek, the album showcases a progression into darker, more experimental tendencies, while somehow managing to be heavier than anything the band has done to date. Artwork this time around was handled by Chet and Rachel Scott for Glass Throat Visions (who also did the artwork for Early Frost), and is scheduled for a March 18th, 2016 release date, once again through The Mylene Sheath."
