Torpedohead / Bio

Imagine a 70s stadium rock n' roll tape coming through a trashy 90s pop-punk stereo,
digitally remastered today for speeding down the autobahn !

Combining a riff oriented sound, melodic supercatchy choruses and some tasty lead guitar
work with the contrast to fast and furious punk rock n' roll while transforming this into
their own modern rock sound. The german trio Torpedohead lives the imagination of
the New York Dolls and The Clash jamming on Cheap Trick and Kinks tunes,
while Nirvana is stiring up the basement.

Since Torpedohead hit the stage the first time in 2008, the band has been giging relentless in Germany
and other European countries, supporting international rock acts such as the legendary
New York Dolls, Peter Pan Speedrock, Dan Baird, Prima Donna among others.
2009 saw Torpedohead hit the streets with their debut Album “Lovesick avenue”.
Filled with roaring rock n’ roll riffs the Album received raving reviews in the international press
and several webzines.
In 2010 Torpedohead set up their home at the famous Woodhouse Studios in Germany to record the 5 Track EP:
“Let’s go for a ride” with producer Siggi Bemm (Kreator, Lacuna Coil).
The release along with the Video/Single of “Cadillac Beach” again kickstarted an avalange of great reviews
and left fans screaming for more. Wasting no time the trio returned
to the Woodhouse studio shortly afterwards to record their new album:

Their latest album “Greetings from Heartbreak Key”, was released in 2012 through
Woodhouse Records, containing 12 original tracks featuring the fast forward rock n' roll single
"Gasoline", along with 2 tracks of the previously unavailableout last EP.

Torpedohead are gearing up for a brand new record in 2014 !
