GODHEAD will release their new album, "The Shadow Line", on August 29 in the U.S. and September 4 in the rest of the world through new label Cement Shoes Records. The band recently parted ways with drummer James O'Connor due to "personal reasons" and have since replaced him with former LOSER skinsman Glendon Crain. Watch the group's video for their new single, "Trapped In Your Lies", at this location.
Formed in the mid-'90s, GODHEAD has been steadily building their fan base and emerging as a true international rock act. Their "2000 Years of Human Error" release on Posthuman Records in January 2001 and the 2003 summer release of the follow-up "Evolver" on Reality Entertainment, have sold well over 100,000 copies to date. After years of touring extensively with MARILYN MANSON, DISTURBED, STATIC-X, MUDVAYNE, RAMMSTEIN, PIGFACE and SALIVA to name a few — as well as performing at Ozzfest and the Reading and Leeds festivals overseas — GODHEAD has scraped, clawed and carved out their own place in the rock music world.
"We're one of those bands that has done it all, from touring in a broken down van and playing in front of 10 people to entertaining festival crowds of tens of thousands," says frontman Jason C. Miller. "We've certainly paid our dues and then some, but we don't feel we are owed anything." We've always believed in ourselves and we are ecstatic to be working with Cement Shoes who recognize our years of hard work and know what it takes to succeed. We are thrilled to be on a label where the president truly cares about our long term career and not just what we can do for him next week. We've never had that before."
Formed in Washington, D.C. in the mid-'90s, GODHEAD was signed to Marlboro Music and had two successful European releases in 1994 and '95 followed by their first U.S. release — "Nothingness" in 1996 and "Power Tool Stigmata" in 1998. But it wasn't until 2001 that GODHEAD broke out in the U.S.
After years of hard work and determination, MTV and radio stations across the country started catching on to the GODHEAD sound and began playing "Eleanor Rigby" and "The Reckoning" in heavy rotation, both were from the "2000 Years of Human Error" album. The band would play in front of over 3 million people world wide in the next two years and appear on three major motion picture soundtracks including the gold-selling "Queen of The Damned" as well as "The Blair Witch Project" and "Dracula 2000". Their success continued into 2003 with "The Hate In Me" single from their "Evolver" album that turned into an MTV2 hit as well as the song "Far Too Long", which was featured on CBS television's "NFL Today" show.
"We're ready for the next step and I couldn't think of a more capable person to run a record label in this day and age and get us to that step than [Cement Shoes head honcho] Dan Catullo," says Jason C. Miller. "In the ever-changing and -evolving record business that has a new set of rules every six months, Dan and his staff are the people that I am confident can roll with the punches and take us to the top."
