LA Outfit Heathers Put Your Obsession Into Perspective

    Obsessions can be blinding. They can rearrange your priorities, obscure your perspective, and, quite frankly, completely f*** with your head. Don't let the enticingly melodic and upbeat pace of Heathers latest track, which we're premiering, "Tanker," throw you off. LA Native and Heathers frontman Michael Francis pairs a lively, driving riff with bleak and insightful lyrics, putting us into the perspective of the obsessed as he admits, "I'm sick to my/head I'm asking why/you're tied up here at my feet." He successfully captures the state of being obsessed with a person, object, or concept, as he outlines obsession as an attempt to fill some kind of dead and rotting space within.

    Fresh off a string of sweat-soaked tours across the UK, an east coast tour with Edinburgh natives, The Spook School, and their first ever West coast tour with LA brethren, avant-garde punk duo Girlpool, Heathers are set to embark on a national headline tour this June. After receiving a widespread response over their two sold out singles "Teenage Clothes" and "Fear," the trio began to record with producers Danny Nogueiras and David Jerkovich at Ocotillo Studios in Echo Park, California, leading to the release of "Tanker" and a forthcoming LP.
