HEADSTONES ANNOUNCE NEW STUDIO ALBUM LITTLE ARMY OUT JUNE 2 ON CADENCE MUSIC

 DEBUT FIRST SINGLE ‘DEVIL’S ON FIRE’

Headstones, one of Canada’s most enduring and hardest rocking bands, announced earlier this year that they were heading to the studio to record their forthcoming album Little Army. Today they are thrilled to reveal it will be unleashed to the world on June 2nd via Cadence Music and have given fans a first taste of the album with first single “Devil’s On Fire.”

A smart, addictive, dirty rock ‘n’ roll track, “Devil’s On Fire” is a contagious, aggressive rock anthem.

Fans have been getting an exclusive inside look at the making of Little Army on the band’s social channels since February, in real time. With tours of the Bathhouse, adventures around NYC, and a little inside look at the recording process, Headstones once again kept the fans close and a part of the process.

Headstones frontman Hugh Dillon couldn’t be more excited to share this with the world, saying “We set out to write the best rock album of our career, and I think that’s what we’ve done.”

Formed in 1987, the band’s debut release Picture Of Health (1993) was met with not just critical acclaim but was certified Platinum, selling in excess of 100,000 copies and spawning the singles “When Something Stands For Nothing”, “Cemetery”, “Tweeter and the Monkey Man” and “Three Angels”. Kicking off a recording career that spans three decades, the band has since gone on to release seven studio albums and countless chart topping singles. Known for their intense and authentic performance style, Headstones remain true to their DIY aesthetic. At a time when style is often valued over substance, they craft hard hitting tunes with brutally honest lyrics, and Little Army is no exception.

HEADSTONES HEADER

HEADSTONES SIGN WITH CADENCE MUSIC GROUP (UNIVERSAL MUSIC)

SET TO LAUNCH THEIR FORTHCOMING ALBUM LITTLE ARMY

FANS CAN WATCH THE MAKING OF LITTLE ARMY IN REAL TIME THROUGH SOCIAL MEDIA CHANNELS

TORONTO, ON – February 15, 2017 – Legendary rockers Headstones are getting back into the studio today to record their forthcoming album entitled Little Army, which will be released this spring through Cadence Music (Universal Music). Headstones are bringing everyone into the fold and giving them an exclusive behind the scenes look at the making of this album, produced by Hugh Dillon and Chris Osti. Starting tonight, the band will be live streaming and posting through their social media accounts, from The Tragically Hip’s Bathouse Studio in Kingston, Revolution Studio in Toronto, and Engine Room Audio in New York City.

“In true Canadian fashion, we trekked through a huge snow storm last year to meet the guys and hear the new songs. The enthusiasm in the room was incredible and the deal was cemented on the spot!” says Cadence Music Group President and CEO Iain Taylor.

Headstones front man Hugh Dillon, also thrilled about this partnership says, “It’s outstanding to see people in the music business who still give a shit about music, I haven’t felt this way since Picture of Health. It’s exciting.”

Headstones are one of Canada’s most enduring and hardest rocking bands. Formed in 1987, the band’s debut release Pictures Of Health (1993) met with not just critical acclaim but was certified Platinum, selling in excess of 100,000 copies and spawning the singles “When Something Stands For Nothing”, “Cemetery”, “Tweeter and the Monkey Man” and “Three Angels”.

Known for their intense and authentic performance style, Headstones remain true to their DIY aesthetic. At a time when style is often valued over substance, they craft hard hitting tunes with brutally honest lyrics and Little Army is no exception.

With Little Army, Headstones are again inclusive of their fans, sharing exclusive behind the scenes footage and real-time content. Using an old school approach while employing new school technology, Hugh and company recruit their army of fans to be a fly-on-the-wall of the recording and launch of Little Army.

HEADSTONES ONE OF THE BEST LIVE BANDS IN CANADA

The Headstones played the Commodore on Nov. 27th and showed why they are one of the best live bands in Canada. Openers “City on Fire” played their speed metal set to an eager crowd, working the young people into a frenzy. It was a thundering, boisterous setting of the table for the big show, acknowledging that everyone was there to see the Headstones, including them. Hugh Dillon and company did not disappoint.

The Kingston quartet has been a genre-crossing group for most of their career, but left no doubt on Friday night as to how they see themselves. They are an old fashioned punk-style band – at least that’s how they are in concert. Hugh Dillon performed like a madman pissed off at the world – particularly his mic stand or at least the tech responsible for it. He spent the night knocking it over, heaving it from the crowd and generally abusing it.

The lead singer spent so much time in the audience that they could have charged him for a ticket. I’m not just talking about being in the front of the crowd, he was everywhere – at one point he was so far in that he could have ordered and received a drink from one of the side bars. He snarled and glared and spit at ecstatic fans like a modern day Johnny Rotten – only with much more talent.

They kept the mosh pit hopping with a mix of hits, new songs and sped up covers of the Tragically Hip, George Thorogood and even Barry McGuire’s “Eve of Destruction” from 1965. Suffice to say I like the punk version better. Even their own slower songs like “Cubically Contained” and “3 Angels” were faster and harder than normal. “Tweeter and the Monkey Man”, “Smile and Wave” and “Cemetery” all got the crowd singing along at top volume, but none compared to the energy of the classic “F#ck You!”

The Commodore’s floor was bouncing and the sound was excellent, as usual. The band was tight, skilled and full of energy, but all seem to be content in Hugh Dillon’s shadow. Good thing, because he doesn’t offer another option. The man has amazing stage presence and excellent command of the crowd. He practically dares you to look away, but you can’t. As a performer, he’s unmatched and I think that’s a good thing – more than one Hugh Dillon might be dangerous…They may be older, but their hearts still beats with their punk rock roots and I, for one, love that beat.
