The Holy OrdersThe Holy Orders are pleased to announce their latest release, ‘The Deuce Of Hearts’ single via Mono Sound Records on Monday, July 27.


Recorded at Mountain Sound Recording Studio in Hull with Patrick Tobin (The Paddingtons, Mammal Hum) and mixed by Mono Life (Mark Osborne-Lawn), ‘The Deuce of Hearts’ takes The Holy Orders’ uncompromising sound into new territory.


The dark three and a half minute tale of heartache, gambling and excess captures all the energy and melody that The Holy Orders have been acclaimed for.

Vocalist Matt Edible comments on the track’s inspirations: “’The Deuce of Hearts’ fell together with a few lost chords and a story of heartbreak and excess that revolves around card playing metaphors. I’ve wanted to write a song with a timeless shanty feel for a long time and this song gave us the opportunity to get the whole band singing along together.”

The Holy Orders were first told that their amps were too loud in 2006. Since then, the four-piece from Hull have divided the opinions of many sound engineers. The combination of strong songs, melodies, massive amounts of energy and huge dynamics has gained them a reputation as a ferocious live act. Their debut album ‘For The Ears of Dogs To Come’ was released in the summer of 2013 and has been gathering acclaim ever since.

‘The Deuce Of Hearts’ is taken from the band’s forthcoming EP, titled ‘The Worst Day Since Records Began’ set for release in October of this year.
