Dirty Heads have released of a brand new music video for the song “Silence” from their new album Sound of Change. The video made its premiere exclusively at Yahoo! Music and is now online. While on tour this summer, “Silence” quickly became a live favorite for both fans and the band alike. The video was quickly filmed during a break in their summer tour schedule as a thank you to fans. Dirty Heads will kick off the fall and winter legs of their North American and European tour in October with the first series of headlining shows taking place in their home state of California, supporting the release of their new studio album Sound of Change. Long-time friend, collaborator and producer, Rome, will serve as support act. For up-to-date information visit the band online at www.dirtyheads.com.


“‘Silence’ is probably my favorite song on the album,” said singer Jared Watson. “There’s just something about it. That song, to me, is just so big and nasty and dark and badass…I just love it. It gives me goose bumps every time I hear it. The whole idea behind it is that the ‘silence is deafening.’ Silence is a very, very powerful thing.”


Recently, Dirty Heads debuted two new lyric videos for the tracks “Burn Slow” (feat. Tech N9ne) and “Medusa” (feat. Ward 21) at CraveOnline. The videos are now viewable at YouTube.


Dirty Heads released their fourth full-length studio album titled Sound of Change. Led by the sunny single “My Sweet Summer,” an inescapable Top 5 hit at alternative radio, the album debuted at #8 on the Billboard 200 and #2 on the Rock Albums charts, while topping the Independent Albums and Alternative Albums charts. Aptly described as an expansion of sound, the album features a range of tracks varying from club bangers to rap, to pop hits, all while maintaining their feel good vibe. Currently, “My Sweet Summer” hangs atop the alternative radio charts at #4, while the official video has racked up more than 1,000,000 views online.


Sound of Change, taps into some of the best producers around including Grammy award winning producer Supa Dups (Drake, Bruno Mars, Eminem) on “Medusa” and “Radio,” Buddah Shampoo (Ty Dolla $ign) on “Silence,” Niles (of hip hop duo The Cataracs) on “My Sweet Summer,” David Bassett (Fitz & The Tantrums, Josh Groban) on “Hear You Coming,” LD (aka LDontheCut) on “Franco Eyed” with Rome (Sublime with Rome) producing the remaining tracks. The album also features guest vocals by B Real of legendary hip-hop group Cypress Hill on “Franco Eyed,” prolific and highly sought after hip-hop vet Tech N9ne on “Burn Slow,” alongside renowned dance hall artist and producers Ward 21 on “Medusa.”

Formed in 2003 in Huntington Beach, CA, Dirty Heads released their debut album, Any Port In A Storm, in September of 2008, which features the gold-certified track “Lay Me Down.” The song spent a record eleven weeks at #1 on the Billboard alternative chart, more than any single that year by any other artist, with Rolling Stone magazine touting the Dirty Heads as one of the year’s best new bands. The band followed with their sophomore effort Cabin By The Sea, which saw three hit singles “Spread Too Thin,” “Dance All Night,” as well as the album’s title track “Cabin By The Sea,” debut on the Billboard Top 20. The band quickly followed up with their first ever fully acoustic album titled Home – Phantoms of Summer: The Acoustic Sessions, which debuted Top 5 on the iTunes charts in the fall of 2013.
