Formed in 2015 from members of competing bands in Vallejo, CA – HEAVENS HEELS just release their first vinyl project! “Naked Shame” is loosely based on a mix of personal stories tied into a religious theme and, in the future, will be part 1 of a full stage production. Think something like a Broadway show, but with balls. With a few select shows around the SF Bay Area coming up, you should keep tabs on HEAVENS HEELS if you knew what was good for you…
