Headstones will also be heading on the road this fall for the official Picture of Health Tour, playing this seminal album from front to back live, as well as your favourite hits!
Picture of Health was Headstones breakthrough debut album that went Certified Platinum in Canada. Originally released on June 1, 1993, the re-issue package will include remastered versions of the 13 original tracks plus four bonus tracks – demos of “Sweet Pea”,“When Something Stands For Nothing,” “Cemetery” and the newly re-recorded “Skin Me Alive,” all originally featured on their Demo Gods cassette, which ignited their career. Leading up to the release on October 26th, follow the band on their social channels to see some rare footage and photos from the Picture of Health era, including this video of the band performing “Judy” on MuchMusic in 1993.
Picture of Health follows the Headstones release of their critically-acclaimed album Little Army (2017 Cadence Recordings). The album was their highest debuting full-length in over a decade, hitting #3 on the Alternative Album Chart and #13 on the Current Album Chart. The lead single “Devil’s on Fire” was the #6 most played track at Active Rock radio in 2017, spending 20 weeks on the chart and reaching #1 for three weeks. On the album, Noisey raves, “Little Army still
retains that piss and vinegar Headstones built their reputation on, but it also sounds as if they’re doing it more out of love than anything.”
Special Guests: The Matchstick Skeletons
Midway through a decade of being on the road. Neu & Matty starting playing together in Head of the Herd. From that moment, it was obvious they would be rocking and/or rolling for many miles to come.
After touring & making records in England, Wales, the Southern U.S. of A, and throughout their home and native land of Canada, they decided to lock themselves in a tiny dark room and become the band they always wanted to be.
A James Brown/Lemmy love child nobody asked for.
