Heavy Temple Announce Tour Dates & Beer Collaboration

heavy temple

So I was like, “Hey Heavy Temple, you’re awesome, how about a recording update on that new album you announced a while back?” and Heavy Temple was pretty much like “Buzz off, weirdo. It’ll be done when it’s done.” Then they punched me — all three of them, in a kind coordinated yet not rehearsed-seeming motion — in the belly and I fell over and they laughed and went about their business making beer collaborations with Oliver Brewing Company, touring to SXSW where they’ll play with Conan and a bunch of others, and indeed getting ready to burn all in their path with the aforementioned long-player, whenever it might show up. It’s all detailed in my forthcoming 35,000-word tell-all, That Time I Got Bullied by Heavy Temple. It’ll be published through Knopf this Spring.

Actually, in my experience, the members of Heavy Temple are all very nice. There was no bullying involved, just me being a dork and being like, “Hey, it’s been 15 minutes, is your album done yet?” and High Priestess Nighthawk being like, “Hold your horses, nerd boy.” Fair enough.

It’s cool they’re playing the Decibel Metal and Beer Fest in Philly, and it’s cool they’re doing Grim Reefer in Baltimore, but it’s easy to imagine them really making an impression as well at SXSW and that’s only going to help them in the longer run. You can see the art for their American Red Ale below — it’s called “In the Court of the Bastard King” — and mark your calendar appropriately for the tour dates.

Have at it:

Austin, we’re coming for you! Playing with some old friends and in some new places this time. See ya soon!

We’re excited to be playing Day 2 of the Decibel Magazine Metal & Beer Fest!! In addition, Oliver Brewing Company will be making a special Heavy Temple beer for all of yous.

Final artwork for our beer collabo with Oliver Brewing Company !! “In The Court of the Bastard King” is appropriately an American red ale that ties in nicely with “Chassit” and it’s inspiration, “The Dark Tower”. Art by David Weston Gregory and appearing at the Decibel Magazine Metal & Beer Fest.
