Brooklyn Noise-Pop trio A Very Special Episode has released a brand new, magnetic new single entitled “Heaven’s Gate.” The track is the band’s first studio release since their 2021 LP Fix Your Hearts or Die (Hidden Home/EWEL Records). The single will also be featured on a new, upcoming album due out later this year.
The song’s title “Heaven’s Gate” alludes to the band’s recent interest in cults and those that seek a home within them. This journey of discovery was instigated several years ago by an impactful visit to the parking lot of Scientology’s Los Angeles Celebrity Center and its nearby ‘museum’ dedicated to the alleged evils of psychiatry. From this point it was just a matter of the intervening years being spent diving down the rabbit hole of movies, tv shows, documentaries that explore this world before this growing cult obsession came to the foreground in a blizzard-bound songwriting session in a cabin deep in the Catskills of upstate New York.
Vocalist/Bassist Kasey Heisler had the following to say in reflecting on the themes of the new single:
“It’s about the need to belong, the search for an in group, and the length’s one may go to find one in spite of the danger and the vulnerability that requires.”
