January 18, 2014 @
The Waverley Hotel
Modern blues, with one hell of an edge
Cumberland Village Works and Betty and Kora Presents, Vancouver based Head of the Herd has 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 #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 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 UK #1 album “Opposites” and countless in between. The second session was produced by Rick Jackett & James Black from the multi-platinum group Finger Eleven.
This show will also feature the return of MCM to the Waverley stage. After spending time in Vancouver, this very popular Comox Valley outfit will be adding their solid grooves to this evening of high octane original music.
