In celebration of the release of their upcoming album Little Army, which will be unleashed to the world on June 2nd via Cadence Music, the Headstones are excited to announce that they will be performing two intimate shows in one night, in a small Toronto venue – the Velvet Underground.
Ticket for the Early show have SOLD OUT, but you can still purchase for the late show but these are very limited http://bit.ly/2pYmN4I
You can now also now watch the official video:
These limited capacity performances will be on June 2nd, the same date as their album release, with sets at 9pm (doors open at 8pm) and 12am (doors open at 11pm). The band will be performing songs from the new album, including the single ‘Devil’s On Fire’, as well as fan favourite hits. Ticket proceeds will benefit CAMH – Centre for Addiction and Mental Health.
Since the process of making their new began; fans have been taken on a journey from first recording at Revolution Sound in Toronto; to Kingston for the final stages at The Tragically Hip’s Bathouse Recording Studio; and arriving in New York for final mastering, but they have had one burning question “when is the release date?”. Today that question was answered in the final instalment of little videos that have been running the whole project (2nd June).
But to tide fans over this wait, the band released their first single from it “Devil’s on Fire”, and man it does not disappoint.
The drum beat, delivered by Lyle Mozlan, is hard and angry; you can’t help but end up head banging in time to it. The double guitars of Trent Carr and Rickerd Van Dyk is jaw dropping; with one coming in under the other giving a rich heavy tone with an amazing twang; making it all that bit more special. The bass line is thumping and nothing less then you would expect from Tim White.
The lyrics are genius and in your head from the first listen, add to this Hugh Dillon’s distinctive gravel voice, although with a tone that is just a little sharper this time around; that being said, it’s still delivered with that telltale, full in your face, snarl that you know can’t be anything but a true Headstones anthem. This only gets better with the added harmonica calling card.
One of the lyrics is: “I shook the hand of God, I met him at my dealers”. There is no doubt that fans will all be meeting there because this song is nitty gritty and totally addictive.
This is pure no bullshit rock and roll and frontman 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.” From the snippets of the other tracks already heard, everyone couldn’t agree more. Fans are in for an exceptional album from these guys.
