Dirty Heads announce Summer 2018 tour with Iration, The Movement

Our sweet summer is here! The Dirty Heads have announced their upcoming summer plans in the form of a 27-date North American tour alongside Hawaiian reggae-rock outfit Iration and The Movement. The spring-into-summer run is scheduled to start with a gig in Chula Vista, Calif. on May 18 and runs until June 30 with a final show near the band’s hometown in Irvine, Calif. Tickets for select shows on the upcoming tour will be going on sale to the public starting this Friday, March 16 at 10 a.m. local time, and can be purchased by clicking here.

The Dirty Heads released their sixth studio album (their third in four years) this past October with Swim Team. The 420-friendly reggae/hip-hop outfit have stayed busy since its fall arrival, having spent nearly the entire remainder of their 2017 on the road with The Unlikely Candidates and Tyrone’s Jacket. The band had made headlines back in the summer prior to Swim Team’s release when they recruited every 90s kid’s favorite high school principal in Mr. Belding from “Saved By The Bell” for their music video for “Vacation.”

The band will visit a mix of venues in both large and smaller cities around the U.S. throughout the tour. Notable stops on the upcoming run include shows at Richmond’s The National and their return to Red Rocks Amphitheatre just outside of Morrison, Colo near the end of the run.

Speaking of Red Rocks, Dirty Heads’ Jared Watson aka Dirty J spoke with AXS during a tour stop at the famous outdoor venue back in July of last year to talk about their then yet-to-be-released new album. The interview with the band’s singer can be watched in the video above.
