Swim Team, Dirty Heads’ sixth album is due out October 13th (a Friday), and the guys will be swinging by to play some songs and sign some albums.
Riding the excitement of their lead single ‘Vacation’ debuting at #1 on Alternative Radio, Dirty Heads will be dropping by for an acoustic set full of that sweet mix of pop, alternative, hip-hop, reggae, and rock that has been their signature since the days when they had a myspace account.
During early 2017, the group started writing songs with no expectations or plans and soon found themselves working on what would become Swim Team. That boundless environment immediately fostered inspiration. “We had some time off, and we were like, ‘We might as well get in the studio and see what happens’,” recalls Duddy. “In doing that, we were able to come up with some really good ideas. We didn’t have any pressure to put out new music. It’s a lot more ambient and simple. We went heavier on the hip-hop, which I love. After the first song, we agreed to just finish a record. We were all inspired.”
In order to capture those moments, Dirty Heads handpicked a team of collaborators—Jonas Jeberg [Juicy J, Jason Derulo], “Lay Me Down” partner-in-crime Rome of Sublime with Rome, Blueprint [Jay-Z, Kanye, Eminem, Nas], Oren Yoel [Miley Cyrus, Kanye], HEAVY [Andrew McMahon], and The Score—and recorded between Los Angeles and their hometown, down in Orange County.
