With the US release of their sophomore album KINGDOM due out April 8th via Big3 Records / Sony Red, the Irish twin sister pop duo Heathers have announced a free download of their single ‘Forget Me Knots’, as well as the launch of the KINGDOM presale. Equal parts anthemic and intimate, KINGDOM is a beautiful and engaging record that has already been a success in Europe. With Heathers having just taken SXSW by storm, the timing for this release seems perfect as the buzz stateside is beginning to indicate this record could achieve the sort of success and accolades that it already enjoys across the pond.
The blend of sharp melodies, tight harmonies and punk-infused delivery led to KINGDOM being nominated for the 2013 Meteor Choice Music Prize ‘Album of the Year’ award. Forget Me Knots, which the band is now offering as a free download, was also nominated in the category ‘Irish Song of the Year’. The record was produced by Max Dingel, best known for producing the #1 UK album from White Lies), and is critically and commercially loved throughout Europe.
