Brit Rock N Rollers THE SOURHEADS are not the easiest band to pin down into a category. Tugging from a striking blend of infectious Classic Rock and ballsy punk rock attitude, framed against a modern-day backdrop, THE SOURHEADS take from the edgy cool of Iggy Pop and The Stooges meshed with the groove of Queens Of The Stoneage, and the swagger of Guns N Roses. In the distillation, they unleash a ferocious sound that is hypnotic and engulfing. THE SOURHEADS charge forward and drop their blistering debut album, Care Plan For The Soul, with Oak Island Records on CD, Vinyl and Digital on Friday 17th November, distributed by Kozmik Artifactz/Cargo.
Formed in the Spring of 2016 and coming from Wakefield, West Yorkshire, THE SOURHEADS soon got to grips with their sound, and by the end of the year the noise rockers had a barrage of highly impressive live performances firmly lodged under their belts. Interest in the band quickly grew and German Label, Oak Island, swiftly snapped up the foursome. THE SOURHEADS then proceeded to lock themselves away in the studio to lay down tracks for their debut album, Care Plan For The Soul, which is also mastered by esteemed producer Pete Maher (The Rolling Stones, Depeche Mode, U2).
The band’s individualistic style truly shines on the album and this is much to do with the group’s vast array of influences. Each member brings something truly unique to the table, providing their own imprint on the unit’s collective sound. The rock ‘n’ roll crew cite as influences everyone from Deep Purple, Kasabian and The Doors, through to Kyuss and Clutch. THE SOURHEADS’ debut album, Care Plan For The Soul, perfectly exemplifies their broad pallet. Spewing out nine killer cuts spanning from the fuzzy punk rock beatings of Demon, The Doors-infused Power Of Addiction, and the all-consuming Mad Dog, the release is certain to set a prominent bench mark for the alt-rockers. With tour dates in the pipeline, nothing can stop the quartet’s imminent ascent.
