The Texas-based post-punk act Urban Heat is to re-release its debut album “Wellness” in an extended version on CD. “Wellness” arrived after 2 self-released vinyl singles and digital-only releases.

This edition includes all the band’s original tracks, plus remixes, collaborations and b-sides. Below is the video for “Have You Ever?” to get an idea what this band is about sonically.

Urban Heat formed in 2019 when Jonathan Horstmann enlisted Kevin Naquin and Paxel Foley in an effort to form a live show based around his analog sound design. The band will now go on a month-long North American headlining tour dipping into Canada for shows in Toronto and Montreal before they return to the US.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
