Dirty Heads To Unleash ‘Super Moon’ On August 9th Via Five Seven Records

Southern California’s alternative rock band Dirty Heads announce the release of their seventh studio album, Super Moon, out on Friday, August 9, worldwide through Five Seven Records. To celebrate, the band will unveil a lyric video for title track “Super Moon,” today, Friday, June 14, at 12pm ET/9am PT via YouTube. Click HERE to reserve your spot!

The album was produced by four-time Grammy®-winning Nashville, Tennessee-based super producer Dave Cobb (A Star is Born soundtrack, Brandi Carlile, Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson), and features the title track, “Super Moon,” which vocalist Jared “Dirty J” Watson describes as “a 70’s sci-fi kung fu Western car chase soundtrack.  It gives you a look into the sonics, tone, and creative narrative of this album. It was all recorded live in the same room to tape in Studio A in the old RCA building in Nashville, Tennessee, where legends like Johnny Cash and Elvis recorded a lot of their work.

“The artwork was meant to spook some folk, definitely. The running joke in the studio was, ‘Don’t worry, we aren’t doing a country album,’ but we were inspired by the city and the studio and the artists who recorded there before us. Dave Cobb produced, and he was perfect for where we are mentally for this album. He’s a purist. He runs on pure creativity. No rules, no boundaries, no structures — a mantra that we have also tried to live by. Also playing and recording the songs live makes you really rely on yourself and your strengths. I’ve never loved an album from front to back so much in our career. We hope you enjoy.”

Inhaling alternative, hip-hop, reggae, and rock and exhaling one irresistible and infectious anthem after another, DIRTY HEADS—Jared “Dirty J” Watson [vocals], Dustin “Duddy B” Bushnell [vocals/guitar], Jon Olazabal [percussion], Matt Ochoa [drums], and David Foral [bass]—have been redefining the sound of Southern California since 2003 and delivering hit after hit over their 16-year career. With over 1.35 billion audio streams to date, the group first made a splash with their full-length 2008 debut, Any Point In A Storm. The record yielded the RIAA gold-certified smash “Lay Me Down,” and it held #1 on the Billboard Alternative Chart for 11 weeks: longer than any single that year by any other artist. 2014’s Sound of Change earned acclaim from the likes of Esquire and bowed at #8 on the Billboard Top 200 as its first single, “My Sweet Summer,” captured #3 on Alternative Radio. Meanwhile, the band’s 2016 self-titled Dirty Heads went Top 15 on the Top 200 and spawned the smash “That’s All I Need,” which racked up over 26.19 million Spotify streams and counting. Noisey described it as “Killer.” Beyond selling out countless shows around the world, the band headlined its own High & Mighty Festival in 2017. Their sixth studio album, SWIM TEAM (2017), featured singles Vacation and Celebrate, which landed the band a performance on Jimmy Kimmel in 2018. The momentum continued with one-off hit Visions (2018), which climbed the radio charts and garnered over 5 million streams, while summer anthem “Vacation” landed on the Top 10 at Alternative Radio and was the #1 most added song for two weeks straight. Additionally, the band partnered with PLUS1 in 2018 to raise over $134,000 for NRDC and The David Suzuki Foundation and also collaborated with Huntington Beach’s Four Sons Brewery to release their very own beer, Vacation Session Ale + Pineapple
