Headsticks have released their fourth studio album, C.O.W, on the 31st of March 2021 on Chapter 22 Records. The band, formed of Andrew Tranter (Vocals/Harmonica), Doon (Guitar), Nick Bayes (Bass) & Tom Carter (Drums), signed to the iconic label as they share similar ethics, spirit and motivation, and of course a love for great songs. The band spoke with The Fountain about the new album and further plans for 2021.
TF: You have a new album out, what can we expect from C.O.W?
Twelve songs that mean what they say…honest and raw social commentary delivered passionately. It’s folk, roots, and rock’n’roll wrapped up in a punk rock attitude as we continue our crusade to say it like it is!
TF: How would you sum up the LP in one sentence?
A hard-hitting narrative of the now!
TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year, after this release?
We have numerous festivals waiting for the green light, and then, should the road map come to fruition, we have a 14 date tour booked for the Autumn. We will continue to do the occasional live stream in the meantime, and to work on prospective new material should time allow.
TF: Where is your favourite venue for playing live, where is the next place you look most forward to gigging?
There are so many great little venues we have played over the years and favourites for different reasons. We’re really looking forward to playing some of the bigger festivals that were postponed from last year, but we are in the hands of the gods…but Rebellion in Blackpool is one of those incredible gatherings that has become a part of our DNA!
