The Heirs premiere video on Alternative Press, Warped Tour full run confirmed
Electro-pop band the Heirs have a busy summer in store for them; currently, they’re set to perform every date of Warped Tour.
Before they get on the road, though, they’ve teamed up with AP to release the music video for “Ecliptic,” which is full of groovy dancing by singer Savannah Hudson and her brother, guitarist Brandon Hudson.
The song comes off of their 2015 EP, Ecliptic, which features the same poppy synth rhythms that the song “Ecliptic” delves into.
“We had a wonderful time making this video. From the glitter to our favorite mood lights, we felt as if we stepped into our aesthetic, our own world,” says Savannah. “We wanted to take the EP cover and physically bring it to life.”
Watch the video below, and let us know what you think in the comments! We also caught up with Savannah to see how she’s feeling about the band’s first summer on Warped. Check out her answers below!
How did you feel when you found out you’d be playing Warped all summer?
We are so stoked to be playing the Warped Tour all summer. It’s gonna be hot and sweaty. We can’t wait to be playing somewhere different with new crowds every night.
What bands are you most excited to see on Warped this year?
The lineup is so diverse, we are all really excited to check out some new bands as well as Warped Tour alums like the Summer Set, Sleeping with Sirens, Good Charlotte, Tonight Alive and Yellowcard.
Are you fans of Warped? Have you gone in previous years?
We’ve actually never been to Warped! so our first time ever experiencing it will be us playing it. We can’t wait, it’s gonna be our summer camp.

“Ecliptic,” the new video from The Heirs, premieres via Alternative Press. Watch the video HERE and share HERE. The band’s debut four-track EP, Ecliptic, is out now. Following shows at SXSW and tour dates with The Big Pink, The Heirs are set to play a full lineup of summer shows on the 2016 Vans Warped Tour. MTV News included the group in their list of “12 Bands You Need To See On The 2016 Vans Warped Tour.” See below for a full list of dates.
The Heirs features Brandon Hudson (lead vocals/guitar), Savannah Hudson (lead vocals), Alex Flagstad (guitar), Eian McNeely (bass/keys) and Brennan Benko (drums). The band’s name can be traced “to a mutual dream where the youth are heirs of the world, inheriting everything the adults leave behind.” This vision defines the music that the band creates in Ecliptic and their forthcoming 2016 full length. The band recently recorded in Los Angeles with Justin Stanley (Beck, The Vines, Sheryl Crow) and Bram Inscore (Beck, Icona Pop); Brandon shared in various producing roles and co-wrote songs with Savannah.
