PEOPLESKILLS Album


PEOPLESKILLS has earned them high praise from fans and critics alike with Ben Rayner of The Toronto Star proclaiming it an “Old School Punk Barnburner.” The album was nominated for a JUNO for Rock Album Of The Year, making it the band’s fifth JUNO nomination, and to celebrate the band are releasing PEOPLESKILLS on vinyl on March 27th. This marks the first time a Headstones album has been available on LP and finally answers fans’ most often asked question “When can I get this on vinyl?” Included as a bonus on this exclusive pressing is the band’s 2019 cover of the classic Gordon Lightfoot song “The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald.” This limited edition pressing will be available for pre-order via the band’s website starting today.

Music Is Facing a Mental Health Crisis

Money is tight while they work long and weird hours, travel incessantly, are isolated from their friends and family at home, and have ample access to drinks and drugs. They write, record, release, and promote, and then repeat the cycle over and over again. And now, more than ever, the industry demands constant content, lest they are forgotten in the ocean of songs hitting Spotify every Friday. But then they get in the van and, especially in Canada, drive absurd distances between low-paying gigs for a tour they likely had to book themselves.
