Dance & Destroy
SO....what do you want from a rock'n'roll band? Do you want a tight, energetic band that pushes it hard? Do you want a working class, talented group of friends who love what they do? Do you want a band with their roots buried deeply into the history of music and their eyes focused sharply on the future? Headed for the Smoke is your new favorite band. Featuring the vocals, guitars, drums, and songwriting from former Boston rock'n'roll favorites RATTLE BATTLE, Headed for the Smoke is ready to save rock music and win over your hearts. Drawing their name from the AC/DC song 'Ain't No Fun Waitin' Round to be a Millionaire' (Left my job in my hometown/headed for the smoke/got a rock'n'roll band and a fast right hand/take me to the top/nothin's gonna stop us no nothin') these guys live and breath this music and want nothing more than to work hard, pay their dues, and kick your ass with their excellent riffage and powerful songwriting. With vocals like the mountain top mating call of a rock'n'roll gorilla, leads that send shivers up your spine, and drums and bass that make you bang your head and shake your booty, they will not be denied. HFTS's lyrical content ranges from the confusion and heartbreak of life and love, to tongue-in-cheek comments on rock itself, to full on sexually charged rock anthems extolling the virtues of a somewhat reckless lifestyle. Each one mild mannered and humble in their daily lives, the guys in HFTS are like ticking time bombs-just give 'em a stage and they'll blow up right in your face! Unfailingly catchy songs are punctuated by organic, gritty musicianship and a sound which integrates the boogie and structure of classic rock and roll with the electricity and sweat of the best punk rock. The high gain guitars bark and scream, the bass moves the earth beneath your feet, and the drums relentlessly pound your body into submission. And just when you think you can't take anymore, the heartfelt words of the singer pierce your soul and draw you into their world. Anyone who considers themself a fan of rock'n'roll music will find something they love in Headed for the Smoke.They give everything they've got and more when they play, living by the words 'Rock Not, Lest Ye Be Rocked' So batten down the hatches, throw back a shot, and please accept their humble apologies, as they're about to rock you so hard that you're gonna have to scream!
