Takin' care of business !! @woodhousestudio #newalbum https://twitter.com/Torpedohead/status/583362478479929344/photo/1
Update from the Torpedohead camp ! We are currently taking a little live break to focus on the pre-production of our next album that we plan on releasing in 2015. We have tons of new songs and material that we think is by far the best tracks we have written. While recording demos we would like to give a shout-out to our sponsor beyerdynamic for some excellent mics and headphones that help us nail those killer riffs and hooks on to the hardrive (tape would sound way cooler though...). Also a big thanks to our friends over in the US from the REAL PUNK RADIO network for suppliyng us with some serious shirts and beer coolers for the time hanging out in the basement before we will return to the Woodhouse Studio to record album number three ... see ya soon ... BAM !!!
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 !

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.
