Heavy Temple Shares New Video ”A Desert Through the Trees” – New Album Incoming

Hot on the heels of The Day of Doom live stream concert, Psychedelic Stoner Doom band Heavy Temple will release their debut full-length after several acclaimed EPs. Lupi Amoris is due out on June 18th, 2021 via Magnetic Eye Records. The band has shared their first single and video for the track “A Desert Through the Trees,” which you can check out now!


Heavy Temple comment: “The lyrics of ‘A Desert through the Trees’ express the desire to find something, or for something to find you”, explains singer and bass player High Priestess Nighthawk. “The desert, specifically Joshua Tree, is probably one of my favorite natural environments on the planet, and given the vibe of the song, the title seemed apt.”

After their first self-released and self-titled EP “Heavy Temple” (2014) was picked up by esteemed German cult label Ván Records, the self-released single ” Love You To Death ” and sophomore EP “Chassit” followed in 2016. Second single “Key & Bone” arrived in 2018, and the split 7″ “From the Black Hole” with WOLFBLOOD materialized in 2020, but it took until 2021 for a full album to appear on the horizon at last. It speaks volumes about Heavy Temple’s talent and face-melting live impact that the invitations to attractive tours and prestigious festivals continued to roll in anyway.
