Southern California’s (hed)pe have revealed the tracklisting and cover art for their upcoming live album and DVD, â€œThe DIY Guysâ€. The 2-disc set arrived in stores on July 8, 2008 through Suburban Noize Records and the cover art can be seen online at http://www.hedperocks.com
“A lot of bands say their shit is live, but I know for a fact that they go in and patch things. Our band isn’t trying to provide our people with some polished piece of crap,” says frontman Jared Gomes. “Our live shows are raw and explosiveâ€¦ Everything just is raw. When we play microphones might get unplugged or the guitars may go out of tune, but (Hed)pe is raw and unapologetic rock nâ€™ roll.”
(Hed) p.eâ€™s explosive live show was caught on tape for the release of the groupâ€™s first live album and DVD release. The live CD portion was captured at Hollywood’s legendary Key Club where the band performed a mixture of classic (Hed) p.e tracks as well as new fan favorites from their latest studio album “Insomnia”. The DVD includes 13 live tracks as well as music videos, behind the scenes footage, interviews and punk-rockumentary film clips from the band’s decade-long tour history.
Since joining Suburban Noize Records for the release of 2006’s “Back To Base X,” (Hed)p.e has enjoyed a rebirth of grand proportions. While the group previously enjoyed success under the rule of a major label, since they gained their independence (Hed)p.e exploded into one of the premier groups in the underground and are now enjoying some of the biggest success of their career. The groupâ€™s latest studio album, “Insomnia” debuted at #138 on the Billboard Top 200, with the albumâ€™s lead single â€œSuffaâ€ becoming of the most requested tracks at Sirius Satellite Radioâ€™s Hard Attack.
