Blackheart Honeymoon, the Americana trio, has been gigging around Seattle and surrounding areas since 2011.
In 2013, the group released an EP, Nothing and Everything Else, recorded at Killroom Studios in Georgetown, WA, with producer Bennie Jenkins.
In 2014, Band in Seattle selected Blackheart Honeymoon to participate in the premier season on CW11. The episode aired in March, clad with live performances at Victory Studios and interviews with band members.
In 2015, the group partnered with Jenkins again to record and release their first full-length record, Mountains Speak, receiving high acclaim and radio play across the country. Shortly thereafter, the band partnered with the Marcotte Brothers and Delany Moghanian to record and release a music video for "Bodies," which later became a selection for the 2016 ITSA Film Festival.
Later in 2015, Blackheart Honeymoon partnered with Lost Hymn Recordings to record the single "Rest in Bone" at Bear Creek Studios with producer/engineer Jerry Streeter (The Lumineers, Brandi Carlile, The Walkmen).
Since 2016 the band has been hard at work gigging locally and working on their sophomore album.

"Blackheart Honeymoon deliver an easy-to-love collection of melodious alt-country, distinguished by the sterling harmonies of Prebo and Pollock."
"Seattle-based Blackheart Honeymoon crafts expansive and moving alt-country songs, bringing in elements of indie and post-rock in order to leave quite the impression."
"The addition of vocalist Adrienne provides a dynamic range, especially when paired against the raspy low tones of lead vocalist Ian Prebo. The contrast evokes a bass line of classic Americana influence, from The Byrds to Fleetwood Mac, yet the bittersweet wistfulness of the lyrics grooves against an upbeat, hand-clapping melody, lending the track a dash of modern alt-twee, reminiscent of the New Pornographers."
