Dirty Heads Drop New Album 'Swim Team' via Five Seven Music

Today gold-certified rock band DIRTY HEADS release their new LP SWIM TEAM via Five Seven Music. The highly-anticipated new album features the California quintet's hit summer single & Spotify viral track "Vacation," which is currently Top 15 at Alternative Radio and was the # 1 Most Added at Alternative Radio for two straight weeks upon its release. The single debuted at #11 on iTunes' Alternative Song Chart and instantly began climbing Spotify's viral charts hitting #6 on Spotify's US Viral 50, #14 on Spotify's Global Viral 50 and placement on Spotify's Viral Hits playlist. The track has also become an influencer favorite and has been featured in posts by the likes of Dan Bilzerian, Brittany Furlan, and Paris Jackson.

People Magazine premiered the "Vacation" video - calling the single "a joyous celebration of life." The clip features Dennis Haskins reprising his role as Saved By The Bell's beloved Mr. Belding. Dirty Heads are also Hard Rock Hotel and Casino's Artist of the Month for October 2017. For the entirety of the month, "Vacation" will be played on 2,500 screens in over 160 Hard Rock locations around the world.
Meanwhile, Dirty Heads are gearing up for their North American headline tour with support from The Unlikely Candidates and Tyrone's Jacket. The 24-date tour kicks off October 24th in Ft. Lauderdale and will run through November. Tour dates can be found below and tickets are available via the band's website.
The band is also teeing up the second LP single "Celebrate" as they head out on the road. Earlier this week, Dirty Heads premiered the animated video for the track via Alternative Press. The track features tourmates The Unlikely Candidates and longtime collaborator Heavy. "It's a look inside a band and touring as well as the journey you take to make it.," explains Dirty Heads' Dustin "Duddy B" Bushnell. "We're not bitching about anything, but you're on the road and you miss your family. There are struggles that do come along with this. I don't think a lot of fans think about that part of it. We all started doing this awhile ago. None of us were married at the time. None of us had kids. Now it's all different. This is how we support our families. We are married. We do have kids. To support our families, we've got to be gone a lot."
SWIM TEAM sees Dirty Heads pushing their sound, moving between pop, alternative, hip-hop, reggae, and rock with the same spirit and spark that's powered them since the beginning. The album's wide-ranging sound is also due in part to the diverse team of collaborators: Jonas Jeberg [Demi Lovato, Juicy J, Jason Derulo], "Lay Me Down" partner-in-crime Rome [Enrique Iglesias] of Sublime with Rome, Blueprint [Jay-Z, Kanye West, Timbaland, Eminem, Nas, Prodigy], Oren Yoel [Miley Cyrus, Kanye West], HEAVY [Andrew McMahon], and The Score.
