The soon-to-be Leeds, UK based 4-piece released their well-received debut single "A Moment of Clarity" on Gizeh back in October 2007 alongside a string of dates with Beggars Banquet new-boys iLiKETRAiNS. The band centers around a core of 4 in Thom Corah, Michael Love, Tom Morris and Adam Weikert but is often expanded for live shows to include David Dhonau(Cello) and Sophie Barnes of The Rosie Taylor Project (Trumpet). This recording features the string section of The Monroe Transfer on "New England."
"The Heritage" is Her Name is Calla’s second release for Gizeh and it is a much darker and harrowing affair. Self-recorded and produced by the band it appears to open up a deeper and more turbulent mind-set. The fury spewed forth throughout the closing stages of live-favourite "New England" - complete with a quite epic string section - pulls this mini-album to its loudest and heaviest moment. There is even room for a hidden-track in "Long Distance Runner," an old song dug from the ground to again see the light of day.
Here is Her Name Is Calla's "The Heritage" tracklisting:
2. New England
3. Paying For Your Funeral
5. Motherfucker! It’s Alive and It’s Bleeding!
The EP will be available in CD and Limited Edition of 20 cassettes on June 9, 2008. This release is now available for pre-order through the Gizeh Online Store.
