About DIRTY HEADS:
Formed in 2003 out of Huntington Beach, CA, DIRTY HEADS –Jared Watson (vocals), Dustin “Duddy B” Bushnell (vocals/guitar), Jon Olazabal (percussion), Matt Ochoa (drums) and David Foral (bass) released their debut album, Any Port In A Storm in September of 2008, which features the RIAA certified gold track “Lay Me Down,” a song that spent 11 weeks at #1 on the Billboard alternative chart, more than any single that year by any other artist. DIRTY HEADS’ most recent release Sound Of Change turned heads upon its July 2014 release, with Esquire saying “Sound of Change is brimming with the kind of catchy hooks that keep you plugged in for both their complex tones and cheerful breakdowns… we want seconds of whatever this pop/dance/rap hybrid is serving up.” The album debuted at #8 in the Billboard Top 200 chart and its first single, “My Sweet Summer”, was a #3 hit at alternative radio. DIRTY HEADS marks the bands fifth studio album, out July 15th, 2016, which debuted at #1 on the Independent Label Albums Chart and #2 on the Alternative and Rock charts.
