Torpedohead release new video "Shanghide" !

Torpedohead release new video "Shanghide" !

Torpedohead have unleashed their new video for the promo track "Shanghide". The song is the first new track the band has released since their last album in 2012 and is a showcase of fast-forward rock n' roll with a modern edge and the shape of things to come in the future of Torpedohead.

The new videoclip also features a collaboration with the new york times bestselling author "Tim Dorsey" who can be heard reciting a rant of free poetry over the music of Torpedohead. The novels of Tim Dorsey are a surreal, Florida-noir way of looking at things and feature the crazy anti-hero Serge Storms who brings his own moral justice on the establishment.

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, Germany's Torpedohead live the imagination of a 70s stadium rock n' roll tape coming through a trashy 90s stereo, digitally remastered today for speeding down the autobahn !

Torpedohead's album “Greetings from Heartbreak Key” was released on October 26th 2012 through Woodhouse Records and since got raving reviews in the press.

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.

Review on "VEGLAM" for new album !

http://veglam.com/2012/10/24/torpedo-head-greetings-from-heartbreak-key/

Somewhere between hard rock’n'roll and pop punk, TORPEDO HEAD is following the path of powerful yet melodic guitar riffing bands like The WILDHEARTS or AMERICAN HEARTBREAK, so it’s not surprising that we’ve always kept an eye on these German guys since their debut album “Lovesick Avenue” (2009) and their 6 song EP “Let’s Go For A Ride” (2010.) On this new album that comes out with a darker cover-art, TORPEDOHEAD hits hard from the start with songs like “Gasoline”, “Bleed On Me” and “Love Is A Dog” (killer tune!) and things never get worse after these 3 songs since you’ll get to hear a very sunny “Rock’n'Roll Satellite” (a song that could be a jam between The WILDHEARTS and The BEACH BOYS) and “Heartbreak Key” that displays more of the band’s STONES/early KISS side.”Red City Lights” reminds me of the quiet/acoustic D.A.D. songs, which is far from being negative to me! Other strong moments on the album include the hard rockin’ “Brave New World”, “Black Rain” or closing song “Rotten Radio”, but the fact is that there’s no real downers on “Greetings From Heartbreak Key”. No need to say more as you should already know if you like TORPEDOHEAD or not by now!/Laurent C.
