“One of 2020’s Best British Rock Albums” – Pop Matters

With over 1 million streams on Spotify and over 500K on Apple Music and plaudits aplenty right in the middle of a global pandemic.

Think QOTSA and The Pixies with a bit of The Ramones thrown in for good measure.

It’s All There But You’re Dreaming is the culmination of over 4 years of hard work from the post-punk trio, who have been going full pelt since 2016. The 12 tracks delve deep into the world of gnarly, outspoken, real-talk, riff-heavy rock music delivered with maximum authenticity and passion.

Without a doubt one of the most followed up and coming UK bands from the last few years, False Heads have delivered a journey of social subject matters, cultural talking points, political opinions and everything in between. It’s All There, But You’re Dreaming tackles topics that Luke Griffiths, Jake Elliott and Barney Nash have openly talked about in their lyrics since starting out, making this album their own musical timeline.

False Heads are an east London-based three-piece rock/punk band consisting of Luke Griffiths (Vocals/Guitar), Jake Elliott(Bass) and Barney Nash (Drums/Vocals).

Having met at Coopers’ Company and Coburn School in Upminster the three members reconvened after University to make music together in late 2015. While all members had collaborated creatively with each other in the past and Griffiths had previously released music under the title, this marked the first time they began to perform together as ‘False Heads’.

While playing at the Black Heart in Camden in November 2015, False Heads caught the attention of former Ramonesmanager Danny Fields also famous for signing Iggy Pop & The Stooges and The MC5. Fields began to take an interest in and to mentor the band, even declaring that they were “the future of Rock and Roll”.

After releasing a number of singles in 2016 and playing venues including the Roundhouse in July 2016 for the 30th anniversary of the Ramones’ performance, False Heads released their debut EP Gutter Press in March 2017 receiving critical acclaim and extensive radio play, both domestically and internationally being played on Radio 1, recording a live session on Radio X being championed by Iggy Pop on his Radio 6 Music programme. In the United States Rodney Bingenheimer regularly praised the band and played Gutter Press tracks on his Sirius XM shows.

The band also performed at a number of festivals – including Isle of Wight Festival, Y Not FestivalReading Festival and supported The Libertines on their ‘Tiddeley Om, Pom Pom Tour’ later that year.
