Sweethead, the new project from Troy Van Leeuwen (Queens of the Stone Age, A Perfect Circle, Failure), released their Self-Titled debut album today through The End Records. Named after a Bowie B-Side, Sweethead includes Serrina on vocals, Norm Block on drums (Mark Lanegan Band, Plexi) and Eddie Nappi on bass (Mark Lanegan Band, Handsome).
Sweethead‘s debut contains the slithering rock gem “Traumatized And Dumb,” which was previously included on their EP Traumatized and Dumb, which was only released in Europe. From the punk influenced track “Turned Our Backs” to the gritty “City Of Dirt” Sweethead is a potent reminder of the sheer thrills of rock ‘n’ roll decadence.
Recently, Venuszine.com premiered the video for the track “Traumatized And Dumb,” which was filmed while the band toured Europe with Eagles of Death Metal and Them Crooked Vultures last year. Watch it here: http://venuszine.com/clips/video/music/94/Exclusive_Premiere
