The US is being very well represented at this years Dot To Dot festival, with the line up featuring some of America’s best up and coming musicians.

One of the bands flying over from the States is Michigan based Heaters. The rock band are well known for their pitch-perfect raw vocals and heavy psych-rock guitar riffs, and with their second album ‘Baptistina’ out last year it’s no surprise Heaters are venturing out across the pond. They stopped by to chat with us about their studio highlights, English breakfast and their slot at Dot To Dot…

Have you played D2D before and how are you feeling about performing there?

No, this is our first time. It seems cool, we’ve only been to Bristol before.

Which city are you most looking forward to playing? (Manchester, Bristol, Nottingham)

Well in Bristol we’ll see our friend Alex from Stolen Body Records, and he made us our first ever English breakfast, so that’s probably at the top right now.

From the initial line up, who are you most excited to see?

Still never seen The Growlers ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Congratulations on the success of your album ‘Baptistina’, what was the highlight of creating this album?

The studio was right next to a Jimmy Johns! Add sprouts, hot peppers.

This is one of the first festivals of the year, what was the first festival you went to?

Honestly it was probably Warped Tour in Detroit.

If you had to choose one city to stay in for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Hot Springs, Arkansas

What can we expect from you in the next few months?

A new album! Out summer 2017 via Beyond Beyond is Beyond Records.
