The band’s first single »Futurola« releases in a couple weeks and you can pre-save it now here:

Formed in 2018, Blue Heron is a heavy rock band from Albuquerque, New Mexico, and their firsthand relationship with the desert is inextricable from who they are and how they sound. Surrounded by endless horizons that spark a compulsion to fill the vastness with massive volume, Blue Heron saturate their piece of desert with rolling, thunderous riffs, drums that pummel and swing, deep, thrumming tones and vocals that rip and roar.

Blue Heron’s guitarist and singer were founding members of Spiritu, possibly Albuquerque’s first desert-style rock band, who burned briefly yet brightly with a Jack Endino-produced debut LP, a European tour with Clutch, Spiritual Beggars and Dozer, and a compilation slot next to Entombed and Mastodon.

On December 3rd, 2021, Blue Heron self-released their »Black Blood Of The Earth / A Sunken Place« single on 7-inch vinyl and digital formats. They also have a track on Magnetic Eye’s »Best Of AC/DC [Redux]« tribute album, alongside the likes of Supersuckers, Domkraft and Witchskull.

Blue Heron’s debut album, »Ephemeral«, arrives in 2022.
