Heaters Premiere Dizzying Psych Rock Track 'Thanksgiving II': Listen

Jesse Borrell


An album a year is a daunting feat for most artists, especially a rock band featuring four humans and a myriad creative ambitions. Bring those ideas together, get everyone on board, then take it to the public while making sure it’s not just something you’ve all done before. Then repeat. 

But one band that has defied this is Michigan-based rock quartet Heaters, who are readying their third album in three years, titled Matterhorn (due Oct. 20 on Beyond Beyond is Beyond Records). After the rockers opted to kickoff their forthcoming release with a daunting dual-track sweep, the second installment from the record arrives today (Aug. 8) via Billboard. Below, check out the driving, kaleidoscopic new song “Thanksgiving II."

“This one was written with a pretty specific sentiment in mind: the experiences you've gathered will keep you rich, even when you're poor,” vocalist-guitarist Nolan Krebs tells Billboard. “For us, that's partly about our labor of love with playing music. It doesn't always keep us fed, but it for me, the experiences I've had through it are what defines me.”

You’ll have to wait to hear this track’s prelude, but for now, Heaters have previously shared the multi-faceted, six-and-a-half-minute space trip “Séance,” the closing song on Matterhorn. Pre-orders are available here
