California reggae-influenced band Dirty Heads have released their highly anticipated 8th studio album Midnight Control via Better Noise Music. Fans can stream Midnight Control here.
“Midnight Control is the culmination of almost twenty years of musical exploration, creativity, and our love for creating original impactful art and music,” vocalist Jared Watson said. “It’s the best album we’ve ever written, and I think that’s due to the fact we have been through so much, done so much, and are comfortable as songwriters, producers, players and human beings. And knowing who we want to work with to get what Sonics. We are so connected and on the same frequency with Ryan Ogren that it was just magic the whole time. We just wanna continue to make dope shit and push music forward and midnight control is exactly that.”
“Life’s Been Good,” the band’s take on Joe Walsh’s 1978 hit, has been crushing the alternative radio charts and currently in the Top 20 at #11 with support by stations across the country, including KROQ in Los Angeles. The track has amassed nearly 5 million streams across all platforms since its release.

Worldwide, the band has over 1.29 MILLION digital track sales and 1.5 BILLION on-demand streams since 2018. Statistics via U.S. and Global Music Connect.
