(Toronto, ON – February 7, 2020) – Today, the Headstones share a brand-new video for their latest single “Horses,” from their critically acclaimed full-length album PEOPLESKILLS. The video was shot at Ace And Sword Tattoo shop, which sees the band performing in-store while lead guitarist, Trent Carr, gets inked with a brand new tattoo. Watch the video here.
PEOPLE SKILLS 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.
