On September 26, genre-bending Screaming Headless Torsos will release "Code Red", their first record in almost a decade. To support the worldwide release, they will hit the road in October for the European leg of their "Code Red Tour".
The first full-length release with lead vocalist Freedom Bremner showcases their signature "gumbo" of rock, pop, R&B, jazz and electro-soul. The self-released record boasts an impressive roster of special guests including fourteen-time GRAMMY-Award winning rock producer Ron Saint Germain; Maroon 5 guitarist James Valentine; legendary keyboardist and founding member of Parliament Funkadelic, Bernie Worrell; and Casey Benjamin from Robert Glasper Experiment.
"Code Red", the title track and collaboration with Saint Germain, rocks at break-neck speed and tells the story of the horrors of post-traumatic stress -- of a soldier who can't escape the nightmares in his head. James Valentine, known for his hooky guitar grooves, steps out on the electro-soul jam "Brooce Swayne" with a shredding Munsters-Meets-Maggot-Brain solo. "Wizard of Woo", the tribute to legendary keyboardist Bernie Worrell, is a madcap, tempo-shifting rollercoaster ride that features Bernie and unites the Torsos with the Mothership as only he can.
