Heathen Apostles To Appear With Pirate Goth Band The Dread Crew of Oddwood

Heathen Apostles To Appear With Pirate Goth Band

The Heathen Apostles will be appearing with pirate goth act The Dread Crew of Oddwood on Friday April 10th at The Satellite in Los Angeles, Ca. It will be the Heathens last show before their West Coast tour with Speedbuggy USA (running from Friday April 17th through Sunday April 16th), so come on down and get in on the wild times. Also appearing is Stygian Crown, for more info, click HERE.

Here’s a quick bio of The Dread Crew of Oddwood:

The Dread Crew of Oddwood is a folk metal band known for its pirate-themed music played exclusively on acoustic instruments. They have dubbed this unique style as Heavy Mahogany. Embarking from San Diego in 2008, this bloodthirsty horde has accumulated a commendable cult following and is rapidly gaining infamy throughout the far corners of the world.

By infusing the raw energy of heavy metal with Celtic folk music, The Dread Crew of Oddwood’s pirate goth style has carved a distinct and popular niche in the heavy metal community. They riff and shred on the accordion, mandolin, bouzouki, tin whistle, toy piano, acoustic guitar, upright bass, and “Oddkit”, while weaving grandiose tales of comrades lost, bloody sieges, drunken debauchery, zombies, airships, and time travel!

Wovenhand, Heathen Apostles Show at The Echo

The Heathen Apostles have been added as main support to the Wovenhand show at the Echo in Los Angeles, Ca. on Sunday November 3rd. Doors are at 7pm, Heathen Apostles are on at 8, Wovenhand at 9. You can purchase tickets HERE. Here is a short Wovenhand bio:

The music of Wovenhand and songwriter/multi-instrumentalist David Eugene Edwards has always had an unparalleled intensity. Edwards’ rich, billowing and emotive voice is always the driving force of his ethereal music, but it’s catapulted by his spellbinding ability to transform instruments that many people might consider mundane relics — be it banjo, accordion, lesser-known folk instruments from around the world, or even an electric guitar — into devices of dark fury and poignant beauty. 

From the apocalyptic revivification of antique Americana of Sixteen Horsepower in the 90s to the threadbare balladry of Wovenhand’s early releases, Edwards’ music has maintained its celestial heaviness as it evolved. But now in its current incarnation, Wovenhand is a band that fully expands that power with exacting and inventive skill. It’s a sound so distinctive and compellingly crushing that even the heaviest of metal bands can’t match. 

Wovenhand’s current lineup includes guitarist Chuck French, bassist Neil Keener (both of Planes Mistaken For Stars) and drummer Ordy Garrison, now joined by piano/synth player Matthew Smith (Crime & The City Solution). Star Treatment was recorded at Steve Albini’s legendary Electrical Audio in Chicago with engineer Sanford Parker, who also helmed Wovenhand’s 2014 album Refractory Obdurate.
