Prolapse, the sixth full-length studio album from Chicago’s AMERICAN HERITAGE will see release in late November through French noise mongers, Solar Flare Records, and the first single from its onslaught is now on the loose courtesy of Revolver Magazine.
Prolapse leads with six cranked-up AMERICAN HERITAGE originals followed by three covers, the album energizing the listener from the lead riff of opening track, “Eastward Cast The Entrails.” Yet it’s the second track, “Anxious Bedwetter,” which takes the whiplash level up a notch, with jacked-up rhythms and layered leads thundering in and out in a mesmerizing, epic attack. A highlight of the album, this one will not just reel in the diehards who have followed the progression of AMERICAN HERITAGE since their 1996 foundation, but pretty much anybody into forward-thinking, sludge-touched riffery of Mastodon, Keelhaul, Tombs and Hull should not walk away disappointed.
Get slayed by AMERICAN HERITAGE’s “Anxious Bedwetter” at Revolver at THIS LOCATION.
Solar Flare Records will release Prolapse on digital, CD and LP platforms on November 24th. Check out the official album trailer HERE, as well as newly-launched preorders for CD and LP versions of Prolapse HERE and LP bundles for Prolapse and previous album Sedentary HERE.
Prolapse was produced by Sanford Parker at SOMA Studios with additional recording by Mike Lust (Tight Phantomz, Football) and Che Arthur (Pink Avalanche), with additional vocals and guitars from Lust, and Parker supplying keyboards and handling mixing duties, and Jeffrey Lohrber (Enabler, Today is the Day) contributing vocals to a track. AMERICAN HERITAGE lives up to their name by paying homage to some of their most influential US acts by closing out Prolapse with covers of the Descendants, Black Flag and Girls Against Boys. After the recording of Prolapse, Adam Norden left the band after eighteen years of abuse and racket, so while it’s foreseeable that this may be the final album from AMERICAN HERITAGE, the band may be announcing tour dates in the coming months; more on this will be disclosed as they figure it out themselves.
