"Sister Lives sounds like a late summer dream that makes its way into autumn when everything cools off and slows down giving your mind a room to ponder and reflect."
—Independent Music News
Wake the Deaf premiered the new music video from Heavy Boots' latest EP Sister Lives. "So Long" was shot & directed by Triathalon's Chad Chilton, along with help from Rachael Perisho and Maria Gelsomini in Savannah, GA.
Heavy Boots has a new EP coming out August 28th entitled Sister Lives via Furhoof: Sixth Man. We'll be celebrating the release in Savannah the Monday prior, August 24th, with a Cassette Release / Farewell Show. A bittersweet occasion as we say goodbye to Rachael Perisho before she makes her way to Portland, OR. RSVP here.
Perisho spoke with Connect Savannah about her time in Savannah, the new EP (which features members of Triathalon), the process of painting vs music, mumbledust, and plenty more. You will also get your ears on the lead single "An Other." Read / Listen here.
