Head for the Hills Announces New Live Album

Colorado quartet Head for the Hills has announced plans to release their first live album on May 29th, entitled, Head for the Hills- Live.  This offering marks the group’s third official release, and is now available for pre-order through www.headforthehillsmusic.com

All captured in fantastic high fidelity sound & culled from 5 great nights in Colorado, Head for the Hills – Live is just that: the band live and unadorned, performing favorite original material and select covers. “Live” showcases the range of the bands songwriting, the depth of their improvisational chops and the some of the eclectic eccentricities that mark every Head for the Hills performance.

Recorded in 2011 over eight months, five concerts and four venues—including Fort Collins home bases the Aggie Theatre and the Mishawaka Amphitheatre—the new record features keyboard work by special guest James Thomas and includes one fresh, unreleased original song, “Bosun Ridley.”
