SoCal alt-rockers Dirty Heads announce new tour dates following the release of their seventh studio album, Super Moon (Five Seven Records). The tour will kick off on November 10 in Minneapolis, MN at First Avenue. Tickets will go on sale Friday, Sept. 20th at this location.
Super Moon, called their “most groundbreaking” album yet by OC Weekly, 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), will be available on vinyl November 15th and can be ordered here.
The album features the laid-back stoner anthem “Lift Me Up,” “a classic Dirty Heads weed song,” says vocalist Jared Watson, and the title track, “Super Moon,” which he describes as “a 70’s sci-fi kung fu Western car chase soundtrack,” and the melodic “Fear and Love” written about the irony that both are connected instead of opposites. Dirty Heads are rolling out a series of videos telling the story behind all the tracks on the album on their Facebook page, featuring Watson. Watch them here.
DIRTY HEADS ON TOUR:
ABOUT DIRTY HEADS
Inhaling alternative, hip-hop, reggae, and rock and exhaling one irresistible and infectious anthem after another, DIRTY HEADS—Jared 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.
