When the Headstones announced that they were about to go into the studio to record their new album Little Army, due for release this May, they informed fans that they would give them a fly on the wall view of the process. True to their word they have, with a series of live Facebook feeds starting at Revolution Sound Studio in Toronto.
Having been consistently asked, “how do the Headstones keep getting record deals?”, they were more than happy to answer this question with the release of a series of videos entitled “Navigating The Music Industry”, giving informative information as to how and where their delicate negotiations with the President of their new record label Cadence Music took place. Although these methods may not be the most orthodox, they obviously worked, but if you are going to use any of them just remember – Plausible Deniability.
The band then moved to The Tragically Hip’s Bathouse studio in Kingston to continue with recording and the mixing stages. They teamed up with the local radio station K-Rock 105.7 and took over two hours of Sideshows afternoon show, most of which was broadcast live and can still be viewed on the band’s official Facebook page.
It gave fans a chance to ask questions and to hear some of the band’s favourite song choices. It was also the first time the new single Devil’s on Fire was played live on air and, although not in a fully finished format, it sounded absolutely mind-blowing. If this is the calibre of the rest of the songs then fans are in for a truly exceptional album.
And now, after putting in 14 hour days and including fans on the whole process of this project, it has moved, not only location but also country with the band posting this tweet last night.
