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 hell of a buzz swirling around the young East London trio False Heads right now.

Following their excellent “Steal & Cheat” single release late last year, False Heads went in to Pete Townsend’s studio earlier this spring to cut a series of new tracks. “Thick Skin” is the first single to emerge from those sessions – a perfect riot of energetic, leering bawdiness that is released on July 1st, and sets another huge marker for a band whose remarkable rise is seemingly unstoppable.

Already being lauded for their thrilling live shows, False Heads have also announced a series of new live dates alongside this new release, including a big show at The Roundhouse in London as part of the Punk Weekender event this July. “Thick Skin” is released on July 1st 2015 through 25 Hour Convenience Store.
