Longheads announce debut EP ‘Higher Than Bacteria’
On the 25th of June Longheads dropped their debut EP ‘Higher Than Bacteria’. The release includes the band’s latest single and fan favourite ‘Archaos’. As well as new songs ‘Starvation’, a doom inspired riff fest. As well as the nine minute magnum opus ‘One and a Half Each’ which takes listeners on a psychedelic journey through wide and trippy soundscapes to fuzz laden thrash riffs.
With this latest record Longheads have pushed their sound to new heights. Combining tones of classic heavy metal and psychedelic rock with adventurous modern song structures and odd but groovy time signatures.
The EP was conceived, written and recorded during the various lockdowns of 2020. Recording was done by Longheads at Longreel Studios, mixed by Sam Mitchell and mastered at the legendary Abbey Road.
As well as the EP the band are set to announce a string of summer gigs, and are primed and ready to hit the road with an exciting new live show.
Longheads Live From Lockdown
Longheads are a mind altering heavy psych band from Norfolk. Now based in South London the boys specialise in brain bending, fuzz fuelled jams and high energy psychedelic performances.
Having released four singles in just over a year, Fuz Y, Imortalised from Death, Face in the Chrome and most recently Archaos Longheads have been making waves in the psych rock scene. Their trademark sound fuses elements of contemporary psych and kraut rock with heavy guitar riffs and blazing solos akin to 70s rock and metal.
Recently Longheads have been working hard on new music. Having released their latest single Archaos in March to critical acclaim the boys dropped their first EP 'Higher Than Bacteria' on the 25th of June 2021, and thanks to a successful kickstarter campaign the EP is being pressed to vinyl.
Longheads are a fiercely independent band and record and mix everything in house at Longreel Studios and release on their own imprint Longreel records.
