BIG HEAD TODD & THE MONSTERS Debut New Song; Kick Off Tour

Critically acclaimed and platinum-selling blues-rock band BIG HEAD TODD & THE MONSTERS have exclusively premiered a brand-new song "Wipeout Turn" on GUITARWORLD.COM, which you can listen to here. The band--Todd Park Mohr, Brian Nevin, Rob Squires and Jeremy Lawton--kicked off a tour January 12 with support act Mike Doughty.

BIG HEAD TODD & THE MONSTERS--who have been together for 31 years--released a brand-new live album, Live At Red Rocks June 6, 2015, in September. BHTM have played the famed Colorado venue more than 20 times throughout their 31-year career, but this marks their first official live recording there and third live album overall. The album features BHTM favorites like "Bittersweet," "Broken Hearted Savior" and "Sister Sweetly" as well as fiery covers of the Rolling Stones' "Bitch" and Led Zeppelin's "Misty Mountain Hop." Meanwhile, check out a wide-ranging exclusive interview with Todd and Jay Smith of Pollstar here.

BIG HEAD TODD & THE MONSTERS have also laid out their initial 2016 tour plans, with shows starting January 12 in Salt Lake City, through late March (see dates below). The trek takes them all across the country with special guest Mike Doughty, and more shows are expected to be added.

BHTM formed in Columbine, CO in 1984 as a trio, with Lawton joining in 2004. They are one of the longest-running groups with all founding members in all rock history, and remain friends today. "We just like making music together," says drummer Brian Nevin, and bassist Rob Squires agrees. "We started as friends, and are proud to still have this wonderful opportunity to make music for our fans, friends and family."
