The Dirty Heads prepare to unleash their debut UK single
Recently, named as one of the best new bands of 2010 by Rolling Stone… Huntington Beach’s self-confessed skate and surf freaks The Dirty Heads who are currently sitting pretty at #1 in the US Indie Charts, are set to release their marvelous debut UK single ‘Lay Me Down,’ through the Five Seven Music label on 11th October. 'Lay Me Down ' also features Rome from Sublime and is the # 1 most played alternative song in the U.S right now.
Taken from their critically acclaimed debut album Any Port In A Storm, which successfully blends together the band’s love of hip hop, reggae, rock, ska and acoustic rock, Any Port In A Storm also features one of the final recordings of the late music industry icon Billy Preston who is frequently referred to as ‘The Fifth Beatle,’ Preston played on three tracks, including ‘Stand Tall,’ ‘Chelsea,’ and ‘Driftin.’
The album is produced by the Grammy Award-winning Rob Cavallo (Green Day, Kid Rock, Paramore) and was mixed by ex- Beastie Boys producer Mario Caldato, Jr. The song 'Check the Level,' also includes renowned guitarist Slash and M. Shadows.
With time well spent in many late nights jamming sessions in Bushnell’s soundproof garage with a four-track recorder, writing unique acoustic hip-hop songs that featured reggae inflections. Inspired by the rock and reggae sounds of Bob Marley, Sublime, 311 and The Beastie Boys, the band’s music evolved into their distinct Dirty Heads style.
