The band recently released the official music video for their latest single, “Visions,” exclusively on Vocalist Jared Watson discovered Chilean director and animator Esteban Bustos online and recruited him to helm the creative direction for the music video. The track is the product of a collaboration between hip-hop producer Blueprint and Dirty Heads’ Jared Watson and Dustin Bushnell. Originally intended for the bands latest album Swim Team, “Visions” caught the attention of Maroon 5 vocalist Adam Levine who requested to record and release the track on their 2017 album Red Pill Blues. A year later, Dirty Heads put their own spin on “Visions” and released it as an official single that is currently climbing the charts.

Dirty Heads members Matt Ochoa [drums] and Jon Olazabal [percussion] discovered Four Sons in their backyard of Huntington Beach and grew to love their beer. As the two became regulars they got to know the staff and discovered that the founders of Four Sons were fans of the band. The relationship grew and the idea to create a Dirty Heads beer was born. During the initial conversations they had a lot of ideas about what style of beer to do. Four Sons pulled some samples of one of their lighter beers (an American Lager), and infused it with 4 different fruits (passion fruit, mango, watermelon, and pineapple). Matt and Jon came down to the brewery and did a taste test to see which fruit they liked best in the beer. While some of the others were good, pineapple was hands down the winner.
Dirty Heads were fully involved in each aspect of this new craft brew collaboration from beginning to end, including the design of the label. Bassist Dave Foral, already known for his graphic designs and tattooing, created the imagery that will be featured on ‘Vacation’ cans and bottles. The bright, colorful label includes classic Dirty Heads octopus art and palm trees to evoke the feeling of Summer.
“Four Sons brewing is a family owned business from HB. They are great people that work hard and create amazing beer,” Dirty Heads drummer Matt Ochoa explained. “I’ve been a fan of them for years now and to find out they were fans of us only made perfect sense to create something special together.”
When asked how the collaboration came about, Four Sons Director of Operations Deven Dufresne replied, “My brothers and I are big fans of the Dirty Heads and their music, so we are stoked to be working with them on this beer. They had some awesome input and were hands on the entire time, which resulted in a beer that we think not only their fans will love, but all craft beer enthusiasts out there.”
“We love nothing more than a nice crisp cool summer time beer,” says Dirty Heads percussionist Jon Olazabal. “No one does it better than 4 Sons. That is why we have teamed up with them to create this delicious Session Ale infused with the freshest pineapple we could find. Perfectly balanced and perfectly crushable, better grab 2 six packs because the first one will go quick.”
About Dirty Heads:
Inhaling alternative, hip-hop, reggae, and rock and exhaling one irresistible and infectious anthem after another, DIRTY HEADS—Jared “Dirty J” Watson [vocals], Dustin “Duddy B” Bushnell [vocals/guitar], Jon Olazabal [percussion], Matt Ochoa [drums], & David Foral [bass]—have been redefining the sound of Southern California since 2003. With over 700 Million audio streams to date, the group first made a splash with their full-length 2008 debut Any Point In A Storm. The record yielded the RIAA gold-certified smash “Lay Me Down,” and it held #1 on the Billboard Alternative Chart for 11 weeks: longer than any single that year by any other artist. 2014’s Sound of Change earned acclaim from the likes of Esquire and bowed at #8 on the Billboard Top 200 as its first single “My Sweet Summer” captured #3 on Alternative Radio. Meanwhile, the band’s 2016 self-titled Dirty Heads went Top 15 on the Top 200 and spawned the smash “That’s All I Need,” which racked up over 10.5 million Spotify streams and counting. Noisey described it as “Killer.” Beyond selling out countless shows around the world, the band headlined its own High & Mighty Festival in 2017. Dirty Heads recently released their latest single, “Visions,” which is already climbing the alternative radio charts and garnered over 2 million streams. The band partnered with the Cinebody app to create a music video for “Visions” entirely made up of fan-submitted clips. Earlier in 2018 Dirty Heads released “Celebrate,” and appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!“Celebrate” followed the California quintet’s hit summer single & Spotify viral track“Vacation,” which went Top-10 at Alternative Radio and was the # 1 Most Added at Alternative Radio for two straight weeks upon its release, top stations includingSirius XM Alt Nation, KROQ, ALT 92.3 New York, ALT 105.3 San Francisco, KKDO Sacramento and KPNTY St. Louis. Both “Celebrate” and “Vacation” are taken from SWIM TEAM which sees Dirty Heads pushing their sound, moving between pop, alternative, hip-hop, reggae, and rock with the same spirit and spark that’s powered them since the beginning. The album’s wide-ranging sound is also due in part to the diverse team of collaborators: Jonas Jeberg [Demi Lovato, Juicy J, Jason Derulo], “Lay Me Down” partner-in-crime Rome [Enrique Iglesias] of Sublime with Rome, Blueprint [Jay-Z, Kanye West, Timbaland, Eminem, Nas, Prodigy], Oren Yoel [Miley Cyrus, Kanye West], HEAVY [Andrew McMahon], and The Score.
