THE HEAD ANNOUNCES INITIAL TOUR DATES

NEW SONG, LADY LOVELY, AVAILABLE FOR FREE DOWNLOAD

UPCOMING ALBUM, HANG ON, OUT JUNE 21st 



Atlanta, GA-trio The Head are excited to announce initial tour dates in support of their upcoming album, HANG ON, out June 21st. Beginning July 1st in Birmingham, AL, the summer tour will see the band bring their endearing harmony-fueled guitar pop to fans across the country.

To get fans excited, the band is offering the piano driven “Lady Lovely” for free download athttp://soundcloud.com/theheadmusic/lady-lovely

Melding their influences into one impressive sound, HANG ON is powered by exceptional songwriting, infectious melodies and forceful performances, giving the record a memorable spirit.

The Atlanta Journal Constitution praises the band’s “old-school power-pop that recalls the Shoes, the Spongetones, the Raspberries and many other under-appreciated ’70s and ’80s guitar-pop outfits. It could sound nostalgic and contrived, but it doesn’t. So many times, attempts to bring power pop into this millennium just sound retro, but it feels perfectly natural and organic in the hands of The Head.” Performer Magazine goes on to call The Head a “power-pop powerhouse.”
