Following the success of their acclaimed 'lost' soundtrack to the Texas chainsaw massacre "songs of muerto county" PUERTO MUERTO return with their own sequel "Heaven & Dirt" which includes two requiems on two discs, covering both themes in 6 songs.

The band performed a sold-out live score to the film at the Barbican in London in late 2006 and will embark on world tour this fall.

They are fast becoming one of the most talked about North American bands in Europe and have been critically acclaimed.

The punk-folk duo (who hail from Chicago) also appear alongside CALEXICO, BRIGHT EYEYS, SPARKLEHORSE, JOHNNY CASH, GRAM PARSONS on the acclaimed 'Strange Country' (Albion Records) compilation album.

The band also performed a cover of the BEATLES "A Little Help From my Friends" for MOJO MAGAZINE's remake of the classic album "Sgt Peppers".

The Cd appeared on the covermount of the March 2007 issue. "Imagine Kurt Weill, the Bad Seeds and Arcade Fire slitting each other's throats and letting their blood mingle, and these are the weird, wonderful results" - THE GUARDIAN
