Headgear will perform at this years Hard Working Class Heroes festival. You can ketch them at Eamon Dorans on Sunday September 14th at 8pm. Entertainment. ie are sponsoring the download chart for this festival and you can download our song 'The Emergency position' for free at entertainment.ie and help us to move up the charts.

We are delighted with our new videos for 'The Emergency Position' and 'To Heaven' made by the "budding" director Dominik Kosicki. We think he definitely has now budded and is springing shoots at this point. Watch the videos online and see what you think. We shall have them up on this site soon.

Headgear's 10" limited single 'To Heaven/A Singsong In The Sky' is available now. Buy it it online at Rough Trade

Rough Trade had this to say....

"Pretty much exclusive to Rough Trade stores in the UK (though available in many places in their native ireland i'm sure), this is a limited 10" release from the wonderful headgear. 'To Heaven' brings to mind traces of Later Massive attack and maybe even Grandaddy. A simple melody that builds and builds into something quite special. 'A Singsong In The Sky' turns up the rock factor more and stands alone as a festival anthem in the making."

You can now watch the 'Harry Truman' music video here on marthadigs.com. The video was directed by MTV's Eugene O'Connor, who also directs RTÉ's hit TV series Killinascully, and was shot around the mountains of county Tipperary near the village of Kiloscully where Killinascully is also filmed. And on BBQ duty for the day was Killinascully creator and writer Pat Shortt. Aside from making a mean lamb burger and starring in the critically acclaimed Irish movie Garage, Pat also plays saxophone on 'I'll Make It Up To You', the b-side of the 'Harry Truman' single, as well as on several other tracks on the 'Flight Cases' album, including 'Icarus Girl' and 'The Man Who Flew Into Space from His Apartment'. The 'Harry Truman' video is available as free download - get it for your iPod. You can buy the 'Flightcases' album in our online store or at iTunes..
