Feeling a bit camera shy




Do you want to experience the full-on blast of five-dimensional garage rock, music as catchy as a Molotov-cocktail on an oil tanker? If so you should check out The Heretics!

They’ve got a knack of combining killer tunes, roaring guitars, snarling organ and a rhythm section that takes no prisoners with the ability to lovingly kick around a sometimes strict genre and put their own special spin on it. If you add soulful vocals and adventurous harmonies to that, you got yourself the glorious high-energy filled package called The Heretics!

The band has it’s roots in a common love for the great mid-sixties English music scene: bands like the early Who and The Kinks, and lesser known groups like The Action and The Creation. Risk-taking, raw pop music heavily influenced by the R&B scene of the day can be a short way of putting it.

The Heretics has played concerts all over Norway, slowly building their live-reputation. The venues range from rainy windswept parking lots (hello Norheimsund!) to packed clubs filled with sweaty dancers. All shows (well, almost all..) have been fun and memorable, but for the band the ones that stick out are supporting the great Cynics of Pittsburgh and The Brimstone Solar Radiation Band, and of course the many 60's themed club gigs The Heretics have done.

After getting a surprising lot of mileage out of their 4-track demo( with airplay both in The US and Europe, as well as faraway Australia – and songs released by Rowed Out Records and Pistol Digital) The Heretics are now (March 2008) ready to record their first proper record. It will be an EP, recorded in the Hörwerk studios and released by Norwegian indie record label Roadkill Records.

Remember: Very loud, very good, very The Heretics!
