Headstones: The Picture Of Health Tour With Special Guest The Matchstick Skeletons
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of their critically-acclaimed debut Picture of Health, Headstones will reissue the album on October 26 via Cadence Recordings. After announcing The Picture of Health Tour last week, they’re thrilled to announce they will be adding more dates including stops in Calgary, Edmonton, Kelowna and Kamloops.
They will be bringing along special guests The Matchstick Skeletons to open each show. Picture of Health was Headstones breakthrough debut album that went Certified Platinum in Canada. Originally released on June 1, 1993, the re-issue package will include remastered versions of the 13 original tracks plus four bonus tracks – demos of “Sweet Pea” “, “When Something Stands For Nothing,” “Cemetery” and the newly re-recorded “Skin Me Alive,” all originally featured on their Demo Gods cassette, which ignited their career.
Picture Of Health follows the Headstones release of their critically-acclaimed album Little Army (2017 Cadence Recordings). The album was their highest debuting full-length in over a decade, hitting #3 on the Alternative Album Chart and #13 on the Current Album Chart. The lead single “Devil’s on Fire” was the #6 most played track at Active Rock radio in 2017, spending 20 weeks on the chart and reaching #1 for three weeks. On the album, Noisey raves, “Little Army still retains that piss and vinegar Headstones built their reputation on, but it also sounds as if they’re doing it more out of love than anything.”
