Head North is a statement; choose your own path. Rolling out of the Buffalo, NY music scene, Head North has repelled the forces of symmetry in an effort to create something truly unique in a genre already so empowering. With the driving force of pop-rock combined with the raw power of punk, Head North touches on all aspects of the human condition. With their debut release of “Arrows” featuring the band’s original vocalist James Celeste, Head North created massive buzz, charting in over 1,500 total copies sold all across the East Coast.
Soon after, guitarist Brent Martone took over the role of lead vocalist, adding his unique gritty texture to the already polished sound. Head North released an acoustic version of their previous release, “Arrows” in order to help acclimate to the new change. Head North became a dynamic never heard before, featuring members Brent Martone, Ben “Boon” Lieber, Alex Matos, and Nick Iacuzzo. With an uncompromising tour schedule, and an uncanny release history, Head North has no plans of stopping.
“We all discovered at a very young age that this is what we were meant to do with our lives.” says drummer, Boon Lieber. “It’s what keeps us sane; the reason we get up in the morning. We are beyond thankful for an amazing hometown scene to allow us to grow into the incredible force that we are today. Our only way to pay it back is to never stop moving. See you at a show.”
