After two critically acclaimed self released CDR’s Rocket Recordings are proud to announce the release of Heads on Fire, the first official album by New Yorks’ White Hills.
Ever changing and always striving to push the envelope, White Hills new album Heads on Fire finds the band playing a heavier style of spacerock as compared to their previous releases. Relentless and punishing, the album kicks off with the spacey swirl of the song Radiate and ends with the speedladen blast of the track Eternity.
Along the way, a mesmerising blend of fuzz/wah guitar growl, pounding bass, sprawling synth, and chaotic drumming doses one's head three sheets to the wind. Whether it be the mere one minute track Return of Speed Toilet or the 26 plus minute Don't Be Afraid, the listener will be taken on ride through a world that is all encompassing from beginning to end.
The White Hills were founded by Dave W. and has since augmented the group with two new members Ego Sensation on bass and Bob Bellomo on drums. This line up has seen the band play with most of Americas purveyors of underground rock including Awesome Color (Ecstatic Peace), La Otracina (Holy Mountain), Titan (Tee Pee Records) and fellow rockateers Plastic Crimewave Sound.
In the summer of 2005, their number one fan Julian Cope released a remixed version of the band’s debut on his Fuck Off & Di label,. This limited edition release featured extended versions tracks as well
as re-sequencing/editing and added instrumentation by Julian himself, following this release Mr Cope flew White Hills over to support him at his 2006 London show at Camdens’ Koko.
