Head of the Heard hit Wav

Vancouver-based Head of the Herd recently completed their sophomore record and they’ve unmistakably found their stride.

The debut single By This Time Tomorrow, a duet with Mother Mother’s Jasmin Parkin, hit No. 1 on the national rock charts, got them on tour with Guns n’ Roses, and was used by the NHL during the 2013 playoffs.

They created the album in two sessions.

The first was with one of rock’s most sought-after producers, Gggarth Richardson, the man behind Rage Against the Machine’s chart-topping debut, Biffy Clyro’s 2013 U.K. No. 1 album Opposites and countless in between. The second session was produced by Rick Jackett and James Black from the multi-platinum group Finger Eleven.

Head of the Herd will perform Jan. 18 at the Waverley Hotel in Cumberland.

This show will also feature the return of MCM to the Waverley stage. After spending time in Vancouver, this popular Comox Valley outfit will add their solid grooves to this evening of high-octane original music.

MCM Is an upbeat dance band with influences all over the map drawing from several different genres and styles. Their main aim is to keep the audience moving and on the dance floor.

They are currently centred on Denman Island where three of the four members have lived their entire lives. Bursting with energy and infectious groove the bands dynamic style and high-energy music will leave you wanting more.

MCM has shared stages with the likes of Cat Empire, Daniel Wesley, Bedouin Soundclash, the Boom Booms, and Mother Mother among many others.
