The Head and The Heart will be interviewed on Seattle’s KNDD The End today, and have made the single “Shake” available for download which is featured as Starbucks’ “Pick of the Week” in stores across the US. Fans can watch the band tomorrow, Wednesday October 16th performing “Shake” on The Late Show with David Letterman and get up close and personal with a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) the following day at 11 am ET. The band’s fall tour, with newly added and sold-out dates throughout North America, will kick off with an exclusive performance at Music Hall of Williamsburg on the 17th. Rounding out the week, The Head and The Heart will perform both “Shake” and “My Friends” on the CW’s Hart of Dixie October 21st.

About The Head and the Heart. 

The Head and the Heart’s new release, Let’s Be Still, is a snapshot of a band that didn’t exist just four short years ago. Virginia native Russell and California transplant Johnson formed the core songwriting partnership, which was rounded out by drummer Tyler Williams, keyboardist Kenny Hensley, vocalist/violinist Charity Rose Thielen and bassist Chris Zasche, who’d met Russell and Johnson while tending bar at an open mic they frequented. The nascent group dove headfirst into writing, recording and performing, and even moved into the same house to ensure that inspiration could strike at any moment. Let’s Be Still was recorded at Seattle’s Studio Litho with assistance from prior production collaborator Shawn Simmons. Later, the band traversed the country to mix the album in Bridgeport, Conn., with Peter Katis, revered for his work with bands such as the National, Interpol and the Swell Season.
