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 Paysses 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 groups 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 AFIs Davey Havok 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.View All Pound Tour Dates
