Auckland band Animalhead are releasing their latest single Follow Blind, August 28th through DRM NZ. Available on all major platforms. Recorded at Auckland’s LAB studio, before having one of the hardest working producer/mixer/engineers in NZ music today, Zorran Mendonsa putting his magic touches on the mix and then mastering overseas by Forrester Savell.
Follow Blind started as a scribble of notes in the back of Dan’s diary while travelling through Europe. It would lay dormant for years until it found its place in an Animalhead jam. The lyrics come from a frustration some can relate to, about the blanket of distraction the media can have on us, controlling what we think about.
West Auckland trio Animalhead channel a huge sound, the likes of Rage Against the Machine and Royal Blood. Comprising drummer Dan Rooke (Jerkstrom), bassist Josh O’Brien (Saints of Taboo) and Campbell Mickell (Animalhead.) The three-piece formed at the beginning of 2015 after Dan returned from Europe. These three lads caught up for a beer and a jam and have been playing together ever since.
Album ‘Blood, Sweat & Beers’ available September 25th.
