Check it out here: http://www.buzzfeed.com/aaronc13/this-map-reveals-every-states-favorite-band Sadly, the April tour won't take the band through the state this time around, but much is on the horizon as the band is currently in the studio working on their third full-length album.
Formed in 2003 out of Huntington Beach, CA, the Dirty Heads combine an intriguing mix of hip-hop, reggae and alternative rock with a sunny California swagger. The band released their debut album, Any Port In A Storm in September of 2008, which features the hit track "Lay Me Down," a song that spent eleven weeks at #1 on the Billboard alternative chart, more than any single that year by any other artist. It is an RIAA certified gold single. Rolling Stone touted the 'Heads as one of the year's best new bands and they were among the first bands featured on YouTube's Raw Session. The band followed with their sophomore effort Cabin By The Sea last year, which saw three hit singles "Spread Too Thin," "Dance All Night," as well as the album's title track "Cabin By The Sea" which is currently Top 30 at alternative radio. The album featured a number of special guests including Matisyahu, KyMani Marley, and Del the Funky Homosapien; debuted on the Billboard Top 20 and peaking at #8 on iTunes overall music chart, #4 on iTunes Alternative chart and #3 on iTunes Independent chart. In addition to the immense fan devotion, press quickly fell in love with the album with Huffington Post declaring "Summer...officially has its soundtrack" and Diffuser.fm saying "The Dirty Heads have the perfect album to soundtrack all the good times."
The new yet-to-be-titled album is expected for a summer 2014 release and has a number of outstanding guests contributing vocals as well as to production. Stay tuned.
