HEIRS: Australian Post-Doom Act's Sophomore Album To See North American Release

Hailed as one of the best post-metal albums of 2009, the band’s debut, Alchera, established HEIRS as one of Australia’s foremost instrumental acts. Released by German label Denovali Records, the album’s accompanying tour saw the band play 69 shows across Europe and Japan, cementing their reputation for delivering an engulfing and all-consuming live experience.
HEIRS' new album, Fowl -- again released on Denovali Records -- displays a shift towards a broader sonic palette. Incorporating a pugilistic rhythmic foundation with coarse, threatening guitar textures and a stronger electronic presence, a great leap forward for HEIRS, Fowl takes their sound beyond genres and into a realm that is almost hermetic in its vision. Intensely focused yet expansive, the album is technically complex, yet uncluttered and sparse in its execution, simplicity, self-discipline and restraint are the keys to the album's success.

Having recently completed their second European tour, and having already released Fowl in Europe and Australia, HEIRS have set their sights on the U.S., and are set will officially release the album on CD, LP and digital download stateside on April 4th, 2011. Check out the track "Burrow," as well as the Fowl cover art, live footage from HEIRS and more at this location.
