Heathen Apostles Record “Never Leave Harlan Alive” For Upcoming “Bloodgrass” Release

From the Heathen Apostles Facebook page:

“‘You’ll Never Leave Harlan Alive’  from our upcoming @ratchetbladerecords release, “Bloodgrass”. Mather and Chopper of the Heathen Apostles recorded Darrell Scott’s classic tale of Appalachia in recognition of those folks who are dealing with extreme poverty, a brutal opioid crisis (their #1 cause of accidental death), along with a vanishing coal industry. It’s going to take alot more than lip service to make America great again.”
