The UK’s most exciting new heavy band, Heriot, have unveiled their mighty new single “Siege Lord”, streaming everywhere now via Century Media.

The band comment:

“‘Siege Lord’ is a track we feel expands on our previous releases, leaning heavily into the more metallic elements of our sound. It’s a visceral yet atmospheric track. Lyrically, ‘Siege Lord’ contemplates thefragility of soul searching.”

Recorded with Josh Middleton (Sylosis, Architects) and Grammy Award-winning Will Putney (END, Fit For An Autopsy, Better Lovers).

Heriot’s first single of 2024 continues their ascendancy as the pre-eminent new force in the UK heavy scene. “Siege Lord” follows late 2023’s “Soul Chasm”, the two glimpses of new material following their signing with Century Media, support shows with Architects in the Summer and their ferocious “Demure” single (14th February, Church Road Records).

Heriot’s debut EP “Profound Morality” (2022) catapulted the quartet into the global spotlight, with praise worldwide and a debut, sold-out, headline tour across the UK. The band have since supported Lamb Of God, Thy Art Is Murder, Rolo Tomassi, and performed to packed tents at Download Festival, 2000trees, Wacken Open Air, Bloodstock, Mystic Festival and many more, gathering a legion of fans in the process.

Fully-focused and with a razor-sharp edge, the awe-inspiring double-vocal attack of Jake Packer and Debbie Gough is all-conquering; the titanic support of Erhan Alman (guitar) and Julian Gage (drums) rock-solid.

Heriot have deservedly been grabbing attention with all four pairs of hands, weaponising metallic sludge and hardcore, unholy levels of distortion, speed and gut-punching talent. Elements of Nails, Knocked Loose, Code Orange, and Vein.fm combine and collide to exhilarating effect, creating a sound that is truly groundbreaking, fully worthy of the notice the band are achieving.

In their short recent history Heriot have caught the attention of Pitchfork, The Guardian Metal Hammer, Rock Sound, Brooklyn Vegan, Kerrang!, Revolver, and Knotfest, among many others, heralding the quartet as “one of the most promising young bands in modern metalcore”, and “probably the best new metal band in Britain”.

Heriot are:
Jake Packer – vocals/bass
Debbie Gough – vocals/guitar
Erhan Alman – guitar
Julian Gage – drums
