Locust/Blood Brothers/Yeah Yeah Yeahs Offshoot Head Wound City Recording
Published Jan 14, 2015Following up some reunion dates in 2014, punk supergroup Head Wound City have revealed that they've been in the studio this month, working on their first release since their 2005 self-titled debut.
The outfit — vocalist Jordan Blilie (the Blood Brothers, Past Lives), Yeah Yeah Yeahs guitarist Nick Zinner, six-stringer Cody Votolato (the Blood Brothers, Jaguar Love), bassist Justin Pearson (the Locust, Retox) and drummer Gabe Serbian (Rats Eyes, the Locust) — have been posting a series of images and videos through their Facebook page, documenting the progress of the as-yet-untitled project.
While the specifics are slim, Pearson has also been posting updates on his Instagram page. Judging by the hashtags he's been using, it appears that the recording sessions are taking place in San Diego, with producer Ross Robinson working behind the boards. Robinson had previously worked with Votolato and Blilie on the Blood Brothers' 2003 LP, Burn, Piano Island, Burn. Down below, you'll find a quick video clip of "Radical Friends" Votolato and Serbian ripping into a pretty vicious sounding song.
Head Wound City released their seven-song debut in 2005 via Pearson's own Three One G records. An ETA for the band's follow-up has yet to be determined.
In related news, Pearson's Retox recently announced their third full-length, Beneath California, which arrives February 10 through Epitaph/Three One G. The record is being supported with a North American tour that hits Toronto and Montreal. You'll find the date and venue details over here.
