Trash Heads Chats of Music, Esp. ALL NEW Music Coming Soon!


Alternative rock grunge band TRASH HEADS have a few single's out, along with an EP and album even! An all new album is out this fall with a couple of shows planned too! The band goes into much chat about their music and how they got started in the first place.


1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members. 

Trash Heads was formed in 2014 by 3 old school friends AJ, Tone and Mark. We met at Mick Jagger’s old school, Dartford Grammar and bonded over our love of music and have played in various bands together over the years. When putting together Trash Heads we found drummer Mike via online musician ads and immediately clicked. Over the next couple of years we played many gigs around London and the South East and released our debut album ‘Skyscraper Heartbreaker’ late 2015. However, by 2017 Mike had a new family on the way and was no longer able to commit to the band so left and was replaced by another local sticksmith Martyn. With a load of new songs in the bag we began to record our 2nd album ‘Vandalism’ in 2018, and although much of it was recorded pre-Covid the lockdowns have caused several delays meaning we’re only just able to finish it in the coming weeks! During the last year, Martyn also had to step down after recording his parts for the new album due to commitment issues but Mike was able to jump back on the drum stool and is back in time to unleash new music!

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name? 

An early version of the band was called ‘Trash The Set’ and we wrote a song called ‘Trash Heads’ as an ode to our fans, which signaled a change of direction musically and a new line-up so we named the new lime-up after that song and it stuck!

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend? 

We are based in North Kent/SE London – there’s a large rock and metal scene in Kent, lots of great bands but not many decent venues left to play! Most local scene bands play Leo’s Red Lion in Gravesend, Poco Loco in Chatham, Penny Theatre in Canterbury amongst others. Our fave scene bands are Orphan Gears, Follow The Hawk, Tailblock, Just Say Nay, Crostpaths.

4. How would you describe your style? 

Alt-Rock/Grunge.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works? 

We’ve released 3 singles, and EP and an album – all available on Spotify, Apple Music etc and our Bandcamp page. Our music is loud, noisy and catchy as hell!

6. Do you have any new music in the works? 

We have a new album called ‘Vandalism’ due Sept/Oct 2021.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out? 

We have a couple of upcoming shows – Saturday 12th June at Leo’s Red Lion, Gravesend (Kent) with Follow The Hawk launching the single, and then Penny Theatre Canterbury supporting Foo Fighters GB on Friday 3rd September. More shows later in year to be announced. 

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band? 

Finally releasing our Covid-delayed album, playing plenty of shows around the UK and recording our lockdown-written third album next year.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff? 

Our releases are available on all streaming services worldwide (Spotify, Apple Music etc) but the best way to listen and buy of music (and support the band directly) is on our Bandcamp page: www.trasheadsband.com.

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time? 

Big choruses that get in your head and stay there!
