Just as GODHEAD is emerging as a true international rock attraction, the band roars into its second decade as the first act to release an album on Cement Shoes Records, the new hard rock label distributed by FONTANA/Universal which re-establishes the importance of true artist development.
THE SHADOW LINE, set for release Aug. 29, embraces GODHEAD’s hammering industrial-rock identity with no compromise, resulting in the band’s most melodically potent album since forming in Washington, DC in the mid-‘90s. The newly unrestrained GODHEAD sound is succinctly exemplified on the anthemic first single, “Trapped in Your Lies,” impacting at active rock radio now with early airplay from XM, Sirius and Music Choice and influential radio stations such as WIIL/Chicago and WJJO/Madison.
The politically charged “Trapped in Your Lies” video, with its war-torn imagery, is included on a free bonus DVD featuring a behind-the-scenes documentary and two other music videos that come with the album packaging. Other standout tracks include the incisive ballad “Fall Down” and the haunting “Another Day.” Fans can hear the single and view the “Trapped in Your Lies” video now on the band's web site (www.godhead.com) and on their MySpace page (www.myspace.com/godhead).
GODHEAD will be supporting the release of THE SHADOW LINE as part of a five-week tour with newly signed Cement Shoes label mates Ill Niño and RA, launching in late September.
“This is the first time we were able to create an album completely on our own terms,” says GODHEAD front man Jason C. Miller. “We picked everyone we wanted to work with, and that’s because Dan Catullo, the president of our label, lets the artist be the artist, which is so rare to find. He knows what it means to be an artist and he lets the artists create without stifling them.”
THE SHADOW LINE, the fifth U.S. release from GODHEAD, was co-produced by the band with Ben Moody (Evanescence) and Julian Beeston (Billy Idol, Nitzer Ebb), and mixed by Jay Baumgardner (Papa Roach). Joining Miller (lead vocals, guitars) in GODHEAD is Mike Miller (lead guitar), Ullrich “Method” Hepperlin (programming/bass) and new drummer Glendon Crain.
GODHEAD stepped out of the garage for good with 2001’s 2000 Years of Human Error. The band was suddenly in demand worldwide once radio stations and MTV embraced their version of “Eleanor Rigby” and “The Reckoning.” GODHEAD started showcasing its talent as songwriters and players as hits soon began to appear on major motion picture soundtracks such as The Blair Witch Project, Dracula 2000 and the gold-selling Queen of The Damned. Success continued in 2003 with GODHEAD’s Evolver, when the single “The Hate In Me” quickly became an MTV2 hit and also appeared in the movie Galerions: Rion, and “Far Too Long” was featured on CBS Television’s NFL Today.
“We have more opportunities now than we’ve ever had before,” says Miller. “And we’ve got a group of people behind us who won’t take no for an answer … who won’t stop until we get to the next level.”
Cement Shoes Records, formed in 2006 by industry veterans Daniel E. Catullo III (President/Founder of Music DVD company Coming Home Studios), Peter Koepke (former President/Partner of legendary London Records), and Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins, seeks to re-establish true artist relationships and development neglected in recent years by major labels. An independent label distributed by FONTANA/Universal, Cement Shoes Records believes the artist comes first and needs to be properly developed through relentless touring and focused marketing efforts to “The Street,” where the true music fans are.

1. Trapped In Your Lies (3:29)

GODHEAD has announced they will be including a bonus DVD with the purchase of their new album The Shadow Line, out August 29. On the DVD will be 3 music videos and a 25 minute documentary on the band, from making the album to making the video and other behind the scenes stuff. Both discs will be the price of the CD.
GODHEAD frontman Jason C. Miller has posted the following message on the band's MySpace page:
"I'm excited that [the new GODHEAD album] 'The Shadow Line' is going to be released in one month, and I wanted to tell you about what else is coming with the CD. When you buy 'The Shadow Line' (hopefully on the day it comes out, August 29th) you are going to get a BONUS DVD with it. This will not be a DualDisc or an advanced CD but you will actually get a CD and a DVD. On the DVD will be three music videos and a 25-minute documentary on the band, from making the album to making the video and other behind the scenes stuff. This will NOT increase the price of the package AT ALL and you will be getting both discs for the price of one CD. We wanted to do this for a while and now we finally have the means to do so.
"Thanks for supporting us for so many years. With this album and new label I believe we will finally live up to the potential that weve always had and what many of you have hoped for us. There are SO many factors for a record to be successful, from marketing to touring to timing and more, but it all starts with YOU, our supporters. Your letters have really kept us going when we've gone through dark times, as so many of you have told us that our music has done the same for you. I think everyone wants to make a difference in the world, and I'm glad that in some small way our music has made a difference in your world. Please know I try to read every one of your emails and letters and I truly appreciate every single one. We also plan to tour HEAVILY to promote this record for the rest of this year and on into 2007, in North America as well as Europe and beyond. Our agent is currently booking a package tour that includes two COOL bands that well be touring with. I'm not sure I can announce that yet so I'll keep it under wraps for now. Look for tour dates to be posted in the next few weeks. See you on the road soon!"
