The veteran hard rockers preview a new album with a typically hard-hitting first single. The furious riffing and Hugh Dillon's intense vocals grab you by the throat, and there's no escape.

Headstones: Leave It All Behind

By Kerry Doole

Headstones - Leave It All Behind  (Cadence Recordings/Known Accomplice):  Headstones have just announced that a new album, PEOPLESKILLS, is coming out on Oct. 25, preceded by this first single, one that's quickly climbing radio charts.


No surprise there, as it's another take no prisoners rocker that reaffirms the punk meets hard rock band remains at the top of its game. The furious riffing and Hugh Dillon's typically intense vocals grab you by the throat, and there's no escape.

Helping the track seize attention is a riveting black and white video shot by Gordon Hawkins in the notorious Kingston pen, a perfect backdrop.

2017 album Little Army was the group's highest-debuting full-length in over a decade, proving there's still plenty of life left in these veterans whose recording career spans three decades and eight albums. For a period, the band had been on semi-hiatus while Dillon established himself, with significant success, as a film and TV actor, so it's great to see him energized and fully committed to rock 'n roll. We need him, man!

Alicia Keys and Jay-Z to Perform ‘Empire State of Mind’ on 2024 Tony Awards

The song always packs a special jolt of excitement when performed in New York City.

It was too perfect an opportunity to pass up: Alicia Keys and Jay-Z will perform “Empire State of Mind” during the 77th Annual Tony Awards on Sunday, June 16. The show is set to air live on both coasts from the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York City (8:00-11:00 p.m. ET/5:00-8:00 p.m. live PT) on CBS, and to stream on Paramount+ in the U.S.

“Empire State of Mind” is featured in Hell’s Kitchen, the musical based on Keys’ early life and music which is nominated for 13 Tony Awards. That put it in a tie with the play Stereophonic as this year’s most-nominated production.
