live ‘stache: THE DIRTY HEADS Announce Tour with Matisyahu

The Dirty Heads will release their new album Cabin By The Sea on June 19, 2012 and have announced tour dates with Matisyahu this Summer.

“It starts with the title. No matter where you are or what’s going on, when you hear this record, we want to transport you to this place, this ‘Cabin by the Sea.’”, says Heads front man Jared “Dirty J” Watson of the new album Cabin by the Sea.

For the SoCal rock/reggae/hip-hop band, Cabin represents more than just good vibes. It’s the culmination of years of hard work and endless touring, and a chance to refine and improve on their breakthrough, 2008’s Any Port in the Storm.  That’s not an easy act to follow – their debut album featured one of the decade’s biggest rock singles, “Lay Me Down” (which spent eleven weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Alternative Chart, a record for an independent release and more than any single that year by anyone, including The Black Keys, Kings of Leon and 30 Seconds to Mars) and a shout-out in Rolling Stone as one of year’s best new bands.

But the Heads knew better things lay ahead. “Last time was our first time in the studio, working with a producer,” says Watson. “This time out, we nailed it. We trimmed the fat and got the sound we were always going for.”

Cabin by the Sea maintains the diversity from their first album, roaming from sunny acoustic pop (the title track) to hip-hop  with mariachi horns (“Disguise”) and feel-good reggae (“Day by Day,” “Your Love”). The album’s defining trait? An insistence on positivity and good vibes (with an herbal assist), a philosophy summed up nicely by the single, “Spread Too Thin.” Watch the latest video for “Spread Too Thin” below and grab the single on iTunes.

Cabin features a few A-level names, including a return engagement from Rome (from Sublime with Rome), Del the Funky HomosapienKy-Mani Marley and Matisyahu.

The group plans to spend the rest of the year on a number of different tours. For now, though, you can experience the band’s sunny, good-time outlook on their new record. “Whatever has happened to us over the years, we’ve always kept a mindset about staying positive and squashing negativity,” says Watson. “And that’s the vibe we had making this album. I think that comes across to anyone who hears it.”

Cabin By The Sea coming June 19th!
