Heat Preacher

Coming out of Chapel Hill, North Carolina, Heat Preacher combines rock, soul, indie, and alternative influences to create their own brand of modern music. They often work on ideas at the beginning of their rehearsals, and these loose improvisations set the foundations for the group's songs in a few rehearsal's time.

Heat Preacher has shared the stage with bands like Eyelids, Wild Fur, Reese McHenry, and Youth League. They hope to play in a city near you soon! The band has steadily released singles over the past year, and they plan on releasing a full length LP by the end of 2019. Stay tuned!
