Headsticks are releasing their fourth studio album, C.O.W, on the 31st of March 2021 on Chapter 22 Records. The band, formed of Andrew Tranter (Vocals/Harmonica), Doon (Guitar), Nick Bayes (Bass) & Tom Carter (Drums), signed to the iconic label as they share similar ethics, spirit and motivation, and of course a love for great songs. Expect hard-hitting emotive infectious anthems and barbed lyrics aplenty from a twelve-track collection of songs that form a soundtrack for the here & now.
Formed in 2012 Headsticks have created their very own brand of Revolutionary Punk Roots Rock’n’Roll through relentless gigging which has seen their profile continually on the rise, backed by an ever increasing army of loyal and fanatical followers. Despite the current wave of uncertainty within the music industry the band have continued to shine, and are delighted to join the fold of the iconic label that is Chapter 22 Records!
Last years tour supports with New Model Army saw the band reach new levels, and this together with supports with bands as varied as The Wildhearts, Lindisfarne, Spear Of Destiny, Ferocious Dog, and Buzzcocks has underlined the band’s ability to cross genres and appeal to audiences with their enthusiasm and passion infused performances built on their very own message of honesty and integrity, delivering raw social commentaries with a wry sense of humour ensuring an uplifting experience second to none!
The release of their third studio album in 2019 was greeted with simply stunning reviews from pillars of both the Punk Rock and Folk worlds, receiving plaudit after plaudit and considered ‘Album Of The Year’ by some publications! This, simply cementing further, the band’s reputation for crowd pleasing, genre crossing, inspirational songs…many of which are now indeed covered by artists from within their scene….the highest accolade for any artist surely?
