Canadian punk-rock icons Headstones take to the road as they support the release of their 2017 hit album Little ArmyFronted by legendary showman Hugh Dillon, the show will feature songs from their massive catalog as well as tracks off the successful new album.

Formed in Kingston, Ontario in 1987, Headstones began their early music career performing to anyone who would listen. At the time, artists such as Neil Young and Leonard Cohen were gracing the charts on Canadian radio while American musician Stevie Ray Vaughn was reviving the blues south of the border. Headstones decided to take a much different approach.

Carrying a similar attitude to Iggy Pop and Henry Rollins, Hugh Dillon led members Trent Carr and Tim White into becoming a band synonymous with the real Canadian road-worn punk, touring their anti-social behaviour across the country to rough and restless fans. With nearly six years of touring, songwriting and growing infamy, they were signed to MCA Records (now Universal Music Group) in 1993. They quickly released Picture of Health through their new label, earning them platinum status on the Canadian charts. Their second release, Teeth and Tissue, reached gold in 1995. 

Within a couple of years, the band had solidified itself as a commercial force in the music industry, dominating the charts and airwaves with hits off 1996’s gold-selling album Smile and Wave. Their achievements soon culminated, when the band received Juno Award nominations for Best Group and Best Rock Album that same year. Following this peak in their success, Headstones put out two other records, Nickels For Your Nightmares in 2000 and The Oracle of Hi-Fi in 2002. The band officially broke up one year later in 2003, still ranked as one of the most commercially successful Canadian rock bands.

In 2011, the Headstones officially reunited, seamlessly picking up from where they left off ten years ago. Off stage, they began collaborating and writing new music. They followed this up by recording a collection of hard-hitting new songs, including #1 hit single ‘longwaytoneverland.’ They released Love + Fury worldwide, earning them a top 10 album for the first time in their career, and a 2014 JUNO Awards nomination for Best Rock Album of the year. The band then looked back at their history, and reimagining some of their biggest hits, with the release of One In The Chamber Music. Their first vinyl release, featuring two brand new tracks, was released late 2015.

Currently joining Dillon, Carr and White onstage and in the studio, are Steve Carr and Rick Van Dyk. Early 2017 has seen the band return to the studio, to begin recording their new full-length album. Released on Cadence Music, Little Army is a testament to the band’s connection with their followers, as they live streamed the recording process and walked their fans through the making of the album. The album includes the #1 single ‘Devil’s On Fire’

Headstones will be on the Esplanade Main Stage on November 14, 2017 at 8:00PM
