The summer of 2013 will see the band play a host of dates throughout Ireland in support of their soon to be released debut single ‘Days Long’.

Formed in 2010, the The Heads of state released an EP of home recorded material in early 2011 which was warmly received by local radio and by critics alike. The EP received the Hot Press ‘First Cuts’ release of the fortnight, while their track ‘Hands Dirty’ also featured on BBC Television’s GAA Championship coverage of 2011. The band’s reputation as a formidable live act, packing their shows with energy and their sing-a-long hooklines, has also seen them play to their own packed audiences throughout the north west and support acts such as Relish and Cashier No.9.

"Heads of State are truly such a talented band, they have the perfect mix of catchy melodies with inspiring lyrics, I can safely say that every show i do I'm sure to get loads of requests for them, not to mention the interest from our friends across the pond in the good old USA. There's a new band in town to be reckoned with." - Caroline McDermott, DJ, Highland Radio
