Want to know what we're up to? 3voor12 tried to find out! Thanks for the interview Daan de Neef! (in Dutch)

"Nog maar 1 jaar samen, maar toch klinken alsof je al vanaf de jaren ‘90 samenspeelt. De Haagse sludgeformatie Headskinner flikt het. En goed hard ook. De puzzel voor the gruesome threesome was snel gelegd na een bezinningstijd tijdens de lockdowns: vette sludge maken waar fans van Pantera, Crowbar en Corrosion of Conformity hun vingers bij af zouden aflikken. Alles hard, gemeen, groovend en zwaar.

Tom Vlasveld (zang en bas), Lex van der Zwaal (gitaar) en Guido Cavalini (drums) waagden het erop, voegden hun knaldrang samen en speelden twee zalen plat waaronder de Zwarte Ruiter als opener voor de Drentse punkers van Skroetbalg. 2023 wordt spannend, want er moet nog van alles gebeuren zoals een plaat uitbrengen en veel meer optredens. Sniester staat al vast.

Aan de big axe energy van de bandleden gaat het niet liggen. Het is juíst het oprechte en aanstekelijke enthousiasme dat de band ver zal brengen. Een nadere kennismaking zal dat uitwijzen." READ MORE

Thank y’all so much for all the love and support we’ve received so far on our first single ‘Sawn-Off’.
We’ve been working our asses off and it’s cool to see that people dig what we’re doing.
Anyways, enough sentimentality. We’ve got more madness coming your way soon enough so we hope you’re ready.
We’re coming straight for the throat.
See you soon.
