Coincidentally, I was thinking about these guys the other day, in a “What ever happened to American Heritage?” sort of thing. Turns out they’ve got a new record dropping in the New Year. Needless to say, I’ve been wondering what ever happened to my millions and millions of dollars ever since this press release arrived. So far, no word on that.
Behold! Another album on which Sanford Parker has left his mark!
American Heritage will release Sedentary, their first album since 2006′s critically-acclaimed Millenarian, on March 1, 2011, via Translation Loss Records.
Recorded at Chicago’s Semaphore Studios with Buried at Sea‘s Sanford Parker once again behind the boards, the 11-track album features a different bass player on each song including contributions from the aforementioned Parker, Mastodon‘s Bill Kelliher and Black Cobra‘s Rafa Martinez. After recording Sedentary, American Heritage added Erik Bocek (Joan of Arc, Ghosts and Vodka) as their permanent bass player.
Adam Norden, singer and guitar player for American Heritage, explains the lyrical ideas behind Sedentary, “The idea is from the concept of a sedentary society, meaning, one that no longer is nomadic. I was thinking of what changed at that point in human development.”
