Heiruspecs is a 5-piece hip hop band from St. Paul Minnesota. The band's name is based on a deliberate misspelling of haruspex.

The band's first releases (Live from the Studio and Antidisestablishmetabolism) are out-of-print, though a compilation featuring songs from them was released as 10 Years Strong in December of 2007. Their self-titled album "Heiruspecs," was released on December 13, 2008. The band's next release will be "Night Falls," to be released on April 22, 2014.

The band is mostly known for their live performances. In contrast to many contemporary hip hop groups that use sampling and turntables, Heiruspecs emphasize a raw, live sound, their roots and local scene. They have also been known to do shows with Minnesota-local hip hop label Rhymesayers Entertainment. They have a very upbeat sound and are typically on tour for at least half of the year. The group style has been compared to the live hip hop band The Roots. « hide
