Heathen Apostles x Goodbye Family

The Heathen Apostles have teamed up with gothic western writer and illustrator Lorin Morgan-Richards on his forthcoming animated series for The Goodbye Family (which originated as a comic series back in 2017.) Mather offered up vocals for the theme song, with Chopper Franklin composing the music.

Richards describes the Goodbye Family as such: It follows the lives of Weird West undertakers Otis, Pyridine, and their daughter Orphie. Pyridine is a witch and matriarch mortician, Otis is a brainless but bold hearse driver, and Orphie is appointed grave digger for her strength of twenty men. Through bumbling Otis discovers his neighbors are turning into zombies, a mystery that is directly affecting their burial business. In their backyard cemetery they travel to the underworld for answers and uncover a plot to surface the evil entities, that would otherwise burn in the Lake of Fire, have risen again through oil pumps that are being bottled as a tonic medicine for the ground above. The tonic is consumed and the host fully takes over the body when the body perishes. Can the Goodbyes hilarious gaffes and revelations plug up the works?

Chopper is currently scoring music for the rest of the animated Gothic Western series, which is slated for a Summer 2021 release.
