Hailing from Connecticut, melancholic progressive rockers Head With Wings took music fans and music critics by storm with the release of “From Worry to Shame” in June of this year, but it’s no secret that the band’s recent history saw a number of line up changes during the production of their debut album.

Stream “From Worry to Shame” on Spotify here.

Thankfully (and as the saying goes), time heals all wounds. Stood on the precipice of both a new year and a new era, founding members Joshua Corum (vocals/guitars) and Brandon Cousino (guitars) are thrilled to unveil the bands strongest  line-up to date.
After picking up his sticks and standing in as the band’s drummer, Mike Short (Black River Union) now wrestles guitar riffs behind Head With Wings’ music, adding further depth to the duo of Joshua and Brandon. Long-standing fans will naturally be pleased to welcome the return of drummer Andrew Testa, following his departure from the band in 2016. Lastly (and despite losing touch for a number of years), Josh and Brandon are thrilled to welcome bassist Steve Hill after becoming acquainted with him during a run of acoustic duo performances in 2016.

Josh Corum is understandably excited to see the band back at full force:
“Head With Wings is now a quintet! Testa coming back on drums means that we no longer have to move forward with the fear of our drum sound changing in a unnatural or hasty fashion, which is something of a luxury. Despite there being some new faces in the band, we’ve maintained key elements of the Head with Wings sound, that can now flourish as we continue to develop new songs and perform current material with Mike and Steve. Mike internalised my guitar work for the live show but he has a style that is uniquely his own. Steve internalised Joe’s bass work but he brings a comprehensive theoretical edge with insight that was previously missing. The fusion of all of these elements leaves us with an ensemble that retains what we've always loved about doing this project along with the potential for new, exciting musical opportunities on and off the stage”.

Eager to road test their latest flying formation, Head With Wings will soon take to the stage for a festive Winter performance.
To better acquaint yourself with the band’s music ahead of the show, you can digitally purchase “From Worry to Shame” here.

Performing at “A Very Wayward Christmas”, Head with Wings will appear alongside Wayward City, Mile Marker Zero, Chaser 8 & Snowpiler at The Acoustic in Connecticut on December 14th, 2018. It will mark the first outing of the band’s latest line up, and a taste of things to come for 2019 and beyond!
