Sweethead, the new group created by Troy Van Leeuwen (Queens of the Stone Age, A Perfect Circle, Failure) and fronted by lead vocalist Serrina Sims, released their debut album last month (The End Records) and just announced a handful of new dates in the western US with Nico Vega and Scarlet Grey.

Sweethead also features Eddie Nappi on bass (Mark Lanegan Band, Handsome), and Norm Block on drums (Mark Lanegan Band, Plexi) and the band recently took up residency at LA’s Spaceland before jetting to Europe and the UK for a series of festival performances and headline club dates. The band starts back up in the US on July 14 in Los Angeles and currently wraps in Seattle, Washington on July 22.

Flavorpill remarked that the album is, “Heavy, seductive , fast, and a little sharp around the edges…” and that lead vocalist Serrina Sims is “already earning comparison to some of the hardest rocking leather-clad rocker chicks around (think Chrissy Hynde and Joan Jett in a Russ Meyer fight scene).”

Sweethead’s latest video for the track “Traumatized and Dumb” can currently be seen on Vimeo here

“The four piece sports an alum of Queens of the Stone Age, but the attraction here is singer Serrina Sims, a platinum-tressed piranha of a frontwoman at home on gleefully brutal bangers as much as snazzy punk blitzes. They’re named for a Bowie B-side, and while they hit a bit harder than Mr. Stardust, they share his pan-sexual swagger.”

We’re just starting a new feature over here on The Audio Perv called Unsigned Spotlight where we’ll try to let you know about an up and coming band or artist who’s ready to explode or they just make some really cool music. Today, we focus on Scarlet Grey. Learn about Scarlet Grey below:

Pieced together from the states of California, New York and Washington, pop-rockers Scarlet Grey now collectively hail from Los Angeles. Members Benjamin Grey (lead vocals/guitar), Keith Cooper (drums/vocals/production), Pete Emperador (bass/vocals), and Cole Martin (lead guitar/vocals) released their debut album “Black” in US and Japan in 2008, but are now gearing up for the release of their newest product, “Fancy Blood.” Boasting the same signature classic songwriting, larger-than-life melodies and pop resonance as its predecessor, “Fancy Blood” embodies all that has made Scarlet Grey a southern California powerhouse, and an online global commodity. Not only does the new record feature guest appearances by AFI’s Davey Havok and production work by Jade Puget, but the four-piece have been supporting AFI on tour in preparation for the summer release of “Fancy Blood.” Having previously played with the likes of Saosin, Yellowcard, Rooney, After Midnight Project and others, Scarlet Grey are no strangers to the stage, and are poised to win over all who lend them an ear.
