HEELS is the combined effort of Joshua McLane and Brennan Whalen. A two-piece band from Memphis, TN. They started as a stripped down acoustic outfit in 2015. Over the course of the last few years they have evolved into a fast paced electric punk outfit with a more heavy and melodic sound. Equal parts ragers and conversationalists, HEELS writes pop songs for a dying planet.”
Altercation Records co-owner Travis Myers had this to say about the signing;
“My partner in Altercation Records, funny man JT Habersaat discovered HEELS while on tour and wouldn’t stop talking about them. Then one day I received a demo for “Good People Even Do Bad Things” and after one listen I was sold as well, and I knew we had to sign them.”
“Good People Even Do Bad Things”, will be released this summer and will be a ten song monument to better days. With gritty undertones throughout, each song weaves through punk, Americana, and rock n’ roll. Each will tell a different story and each song will make the author look worse than the last.

With ten years of amazing shows under their belt The Altercation Punk Rock BBQ has become a must attend event for any true punk fan during the annual South By South West music conference in Austin Texas.

SkyTigers claim to hail from "parts unknown" and that could apply as much to their genre distinction as it could to their regional origins. Citing influences from Motorhead to Iron Maiden the thrash/metal influence is obvious from the get go but the vocals and overall delivery feels distinctly punk rock, perhaps in the vein of Comeback Kid. They're raw, fast, angry, and in terms of their new EP "Disasterbation," they're free. If you're looking for something to listen to next time you want to destroy something this is for you. Give the album a listen and snag it for free on bandcamp.
