Deadheads To Release Second Album ‘Loadead’ In October

Deadheads To Release Their Second Album “Loadead” In October 2015

Swedish rockers Deadheads will release their second studio album titled “Loadead” on October 30, 2015, on High Roller Records.

You had to look very hard for a bad review of “This Is Deadheads First Album (It Includes Electric Guitars)”, released on High Roller Records earlier this year. Metal Hammer, Rock Hard, Rocks, Classic Rock – they all loved the Deadheads’ own brand of “Boogie Punk” (that’s how the band describe their own sound). Guitarist and singer Manne Olander finds a simple explanation for the Deadheads being everybody’s darling at the moment: “People that really enjoy and understand good music always find something they like in different kinds of musical genres. Good music is good music. We just play rock ‘n’ roll“.

According to Manne Olander, the mode of production shaped the way the record turned out quite considerably: “We recorded “Loadead” live in the studio, with all musicians playing their respective instruments together in one room. Nobody was wearing any headphones. That really gave the whole album the right vibe. We work hard on the songwriting to get the songs and the sound we like“.

With tracks like the fuzzed up “There’s A Hole In The Sky”, the more laid-back “Empty Howls” (with shades of early Fleetwood Mac) and “Let Loose The Fool”, proto punk in the vein of The Dead Boys, Dictators, Johnny Thunders and New York Dolls,  “Loadead” has an even broader scope, a wider appeal than the Deadheads’ first album.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
