Canadian punk-rock band Headstones, formed in Kingston, Ontario in 1987, began their early music career performing to anyone who would listen. At the time, artists such as Neil Young and Leonard Cohen were gracing the charts on Canadian radio while American musician Stevie Ray Vaughn was reviving the blues south of the border. Headstones decided to take a much different approach. Carrying a similar attitude to Iggy Pop and Henry Rollins, Hugh Dillon led members Trent Carr and Tim White into becoming a band synonymous with the real Canadian road-worn punk, touring their anti-social behaviour across the country to rough and restless fans. Currently joining Dillon, Carr and White onstage and in the studio, are Steve Carr, Rick van Dyk and Lyle Molzan. Early 2017 has seen the band return to the studio, to begin recording their new full-length album. To be released on Cadence Music, Little Army is a testament to the band's connection with their followers, as they live stream the recording process and walk their fans through the making of the album.
