Hailed by Iggy Pop as one of his favourite bands of the moment, declared “the future of rock n’ roll” by ex-Ramones manager Danny Fields, signed up by The Libertines drummer Gary Powell to his 25 Hour Convenience Store label, and offered Pete Townsend’s studio to record in. It’s fair to say that there’s a bit of a buzz swirling around the young East London trio False Heads right now.
Following their most recent single “Thick Skin”, which dropped this summer, False Heads went on to perform at The Roundhouse in London for the Punk Weekender event, played a set at Camden Rocks festival, a live session for BBC Introducing.
Recorded in Pete Townsend’s studio earlier this spring, “Weigh In” is the latest single in False Head’s arsenal, and a perfect riot of energetic, leering bawdiness that sets another huge marker for a band whose remarkable rise is seemingly unstoppable.
“Weigh In” is released through 25 Hour Convenience Store this October 7th, with early live dates already announced and more to follow in the coming weeks.
