Floatin’ up to new heights, Southern California’s alt-rock band Dirty Heads have released their new single, “Lift Me Up.” Listen to the song and view the full tracklist of their seventh studio album, Super Moon, out on Friday, August 9, worldwide through Five Seven Records now below.
Pre-order the album now HERE.
Following the release of the title track, “Super Moon,” the band is excited to share their new summer anthem song. “‘Lift Me Up’ is a classic Dirty Heads, a weed song,” says vocalist Jared Watson. “We tapped into our own lives – we used to be drug dealers, so this is our version of Curtis Mayfield’s ‘Pusherman,’ the theme song for some Shaft-style weed-seller.” The vocals and instrumentals lay you back, setting your mind to wander, while the alternative rock riff gets a slight reggae infusion.
The video, directed by Jay Teegardin, who has worked with the band in the past on “My Sweet Summer,” “That’s All I Need,” and “Oxygen,” was shot at a weed grow-op in Los Angeles, CA. It is based on a cookie-cutter sleepy town in the 70’s, where the bow-tied milkman delivers product to lift everyone up with psychedelic elements. Both songs are available to stream/purchase HERE.
The album was produced by four-time Grammy®-winning Nashville, Tennessee-based super producer Dave Cobb (A Star is Born soundtrack, Brandi Carlile, Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson), and features the title track, “Super Moon,” which vocalist Jared Watson describes as “a 70’s sci-fi kung fu Western car chase soundtrack. It gives you a look into the sonics, tone, and creative narrative of this album. It was all recorded live in the same room to tape in Studio A in the old RCA building in Nashville, Tennessee, where legends like Johnny Cash and Elvis recorded a lot of their work.”
Dirty Heads are currently five dates in on their 32-date co-headlining U.S. tour with 311, with support from The Interrupters, Dreamers and Bikini Trill, this summer. The band will of course be playing a diverse setlist, including a few tracks from Super Moon, in addition to hits and fan favorites from their catalog. Dirty Heads will close the shows in Indianapolis, IN, Boston, MA, Gilford, NH, Jacksonville, FL, Dallas, TX, Chula Vista, CA, and Auburn, MI, concluding the tour on August 20 in Salt Lake City. Tickets are available for purchase HERE and exclusive VIP and merch packages HERE.
