Heathers

 Los Angeles, California, USA
BandRockAlternative

We're a three-piece band toeing the line between late 80s indiepop and 90s DIY. We're bright and loud with a sinister dark side, singing about gender-bending teenagers, suicidal writers, & feverish sleepless dreams. We want to make you dance but we also want to give you chills.

Biography

Heathers are a miserablist guitar-pop band founded in Los Angeles in late 2012 by Michael Francis and Thom Lucero. After playing a few months' worth of shows with their original drummer, Ricardo Sanchez, they were joined by Michael Wegener in September 2013, completing the current lineup. The band have released two 7" singles through Francis's own Death Party Records imprint to a great deal of positive press, both in the US and in the UK. In April 2014 the band booked their own UK tour. In May, the band made their NYC debut at Littlefield for NYC Popfest. The band are currently prepping their debut album, which they will record in Los Angeles this summer. 

Lyrics

Teenage Clothes

Written By: Michael Avishay

another sunny day I'm waiting here I'm waiting there for you
you said we'd meet today but you never told me what we're gonna do

so I am naked cause I've been making all these plans
will you make it? or should I find another man?

there's no easy way for me to say
there's no easy way for you to stay.

here you're coming now you're wearing all your mothers teenage clothes
you're just a boy who's been with older men but why I'll never know

so I am naked cause I've been making all these plans
can't you fake it? tie me down, I'll be your man.

there's no easy way for me to say
there's no easy way for you to stay

Colossi of Memnon

Written By: Michael Avishay

hide your face in another time
hide your faith in another lie

what will she do when she sees me coming home?
she'll hide her face and close the door.

hide your face in broken glass
hide your faith and don't come back

what will she do when she sees me coming home?
she'll hide her face and close the door.

bad dreams
that end in closed doors.

hide your love where no one lies
hide your faith in empty skies

what will she do when she sees me coming home?
she'll hide her face and close the door.

bad dreams, bad dreams, bad dreams, bad dreams
i have bad dreams that end in closed doors.

I Don't Wanna Be Adored

Written By: Michael Avishay

somewhere I've heard this before
I'll take it all and nothing more

but I don't wanna be adored

it's been raining in my mind
I sold my soul to tell the time

but I don't wanna be adored
