Heathers Short Info

Formed in 2007 at the age of 17, Heathers found instant international success with their first album Here, Not There, an acoustic-only project which feature the #1 hit “Remember When.” On the heels of the record, Heathers (also known as twins Ellie and Louise Macnamara) developed an underground following both in Ireland and the DIY scene in the United States. Their popularity in the US continued to rise after two summer tours of house shows and support from heavyweights such as legendary DJ and producer David Guetta and film and television producer, screenwriter, director, actor and composer JJ Abrams.

In 2012, Heathers signed a worldwide deal with Universal Music Publishing in London and set about recording their second album - Kingdom’s – with producer Max Dingel.

In Ireland, Kingdom was nominated for the prestigious Choice Music Prize, an annual music prize awarded to the best album in the country. The Sunday Business Post called the album a “lush, captivating experience” that fans could “take home and live with for a long time” given that “at 22 years of age, Louise and Ellie have a preternatural grasp of melody and a talent for cascading vocal harmonies.” The Irish Times agreed, stating that tracks from the album “embed themselves after just one listen.” Irish Mail on Sunday boldly declared “Heathers new album Kingdom is one of the best Irish albums of the year.”
Music Week credited the pair’s style with “burning, urgent poignancy, dual vocals and catchy harmonies” while Much Music stated that “if you haven’t heard about Heathers from your friends yet, you soon will.”

In 2013 they signed to Sony Music Canada and completed three very successful tours of the country in that time, as well as completing several visits to the US. The album was also made available in Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Poland through Warner Music Germany.

Kingdom was released on April 8th release in the USA through Sony Red. The first single “Forget Me Knots” became a firm favourite on US radio in advance of that release. To coincide with that US release, Heathers also played several shows at South by Southwest Festival in Texas for the first time.
