FALSE HEADS SET TO RELEASE NEW SINGLE ‘THICK SKIN’ ON 25 HOUR CONVENIENCE STORE THIS JULY
“These kids make a lot of noise, I like it”
”Built around a gargantuan riff… a jangly masterpiece”
“While Pixies new material finds the band adjusting to their elder-statesmen status, quiet-loud rockers False Heads offer a reminder of Black Francis and co’s youthful imperiousness”
“False Heads might be new kids on the block. However, judging by their recent EP, they’re already well versed when it comes to the art of songwriting”
Drowned in Sound
“Propulsive, energetic songwriting, those pastoral, deeply English melodies are matched against a raw sense of destruction. Check it out now”
“One of the best bands I’ve had the pleasure to witness ‘do their thing’ in a long time”
Gary Powell (The Libertines / 25 Hour Convenience Store)
“I was almost giving up, but now my hope for the future of rock n’ roll is renewed – for me that’s a very big deal”
Danny Fields (Ramones manager)
Hailed by Iggy Pop as one of his favourite bands of the moment, declared “the future of rock n’ roll” by ex-Ramones managerDanny Fields, signed up by The Libertines drummer Gary Powell to his 25 Hour Convenience Store label, and offered Pete Townsend’s studio to record in. It’s fair to say that there’s a hell of a buzz swirling around the young East London trio False Heads right now.
NME, Clash Magazine, Q Magazine, Artrocker, Drowned In Sound, 6Music, Radio X and BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens have also all waded in with support and praise for the trio’s delinquent, punk-driven assault, that finds them caught somewhere between the early grunge of Foo Fighters, the infectious songwriting of Pixies, and the snotty punk attitude of The Buzzcocks.
Following their excellent ‘Steal & Cheat’ single release late last year, False Heads went in to Pete Townsend’s studio earlier this spring to cut a series of new tracks. ‘Thick Skin’ is the first single to emerge from those sessions – a perfect riot of energetic, leering bawdiness that is released on July 1st, and sets another huge marker for a band whose remarkable rise is seemingly unstoppable.
Already being lauded for their thrilling live shows, False Heads have also announced a series of new live dates alongside this new release, including a big show at The Roundhouse in London as part of the Punk Weekender event this July.
One thing’s for sure, there’s a palpable excitement brewing around False Heads, and with a series of new releases set to follow across this year, it looks like their rise is only set to continue in 2016.
‘Thick Skin’ is released on July 1st 2015 through 25 Hour Convenience Store and will be available from all good digital stores.
