THE HEAD RELEASE NEW ALBUM ‘SPACE’
To coincide with City Tour in the UK with over 50 dates
Atlanta rock band The Head officially release their new full length album Space in the UK this Autumn to coincide with an extensive run of shows across the nation. Currently on tour in the US, the band’s current run spans over 50 dates, including 14 cities in the United Kingdom.
Brothers Mike Shaw (bass, vocals) and Jack Shaw (drums) and Jacob Morrell (guitars) have been jamming together since high school, writing and performing original songs inspired by the bands they love: trippy Brits like Stone Roses, Spiritualized, Ride, The Verve and Echo and the Bunnymen, and moody Americans like The National, Scott Walker and early R.E.M.
Over the years The Head have opened for/shared the stage with Primal Scream, Lucy Dacus, Those Darlins, Steve Wynn (of the Dream Syndicate), Shovels and Rope, among many others. They’ve also just wrapped up recording sessions at John Vanderslice’s Tiny Telephone Studios in San Francisco, CA.
After logging more than 200 nights on the road, The Head returned home to Atlanta to record with producers Tanner Hendon & Wyatt Oates at Madison Studios in a room anchored by an SSL board that previously recorded albums by Matthew Sweet, Bruce Springsteen and Pearl Jam when it lived at the old Southern Tracks studio.
“This is a dynamic live band who have recorded what must be the culminating achievement of their career (so far)” – No Earplugs
“The Head have long had a knack for crafting big, anthemic, hook-heavy songs, and their latest single is no exception, “ – Immersive Atlanta
“The Head make feel good indie rock that will have you bopping your head and dancing,” – Impose
“A band that knows its history, and a thing or two about reinventing it in the now,” – Performer Magazine
