Dirty Heads Announce Summer Tour

Dirty Heads have announced an extensive North American Summer headline tour along with a late night television performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Before hitting the road the band will stop by Jimmy Kimmel Live! to perform their hit single, “Celebrate,” featuring the Unlikely Candidates this Wednesday, March 14th. The tour includes stops at amphitheaters across the country including famed venues like Red Rocks, Festival Pier at Penn’s Landing, The Stone Pony and more. The Dirty Heads will kick off the national run in Chula Vista, CA on May 18th. Tickets and on-sale details can be found here.

On this tour, the Dirty Heads will be partnering with the organization Plus 1, pinning $1 of every ticket sale to benefit the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC). With the help of Plus 1, Dirty Heads fans will be able to participate in positive change. NRDC covers a wide range of environmental work including Climate Change, Communities, Energy, Food, Health, Oceans, Water and The Wild. NRDC works to protect our seas from pollution and exploitation. The NRDC also works to protect our seas from pollution and exploitation – something that Dirty Heads feels passionate about. The band have also partnered with CID Entertainment to offer Fan Experiences on tour after a successful run in 2017.

Dirty Heads recently revealed the official video for “Celebrate” , the second single off the band’s new album SWIM TEAM  (out now on Five Seven Music). Currently in the TOP 20 and racing up the charts at Alternative Radio, “Celebrate”juxtaposes joy and nostalgia with beguiling alternative pop and lyrical honesty. The emotional heart of the record, the song tells the story of a touring band living their dream while simultaneously longing for home and the families they’ve left behind.
Per Dirty Heads’ Dustin “Duddy B” Bushnell “It’s a look inside a band and touring as well as the journey you take to make it. We’re not bitching about anything, but you’re on the road and you miss your family. We all started doing this a while ago. None of us were married at the time. None of us had kids. Now it’s all different.”
The video, directed by Wayne Isham (Metallica, Foo Fighters, Michael Jackson), features an evocative band performance as real family photos and home footage are projected on and around them. Dirty Heads will be revealing additional behind-the-scenes content, personal interviews and more from the making of this video in the coming weeks.
Celebrate follows the California quintet’s hit summer single & Spotify viral track “Vacation,” which went Top-10 at Alternative Radio and was the # 1 Most Added at Alternative Radio for two straight weeks upon its release, top stations including Sirius XM Alt Nation, KROQ, ALT 92.3 New York, ALT 105.3 San Francisco, KKDO Sacramento and KPNTY St. Louis. Both tracks are taken from SWIM TEAM which 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.
