I hope everyone enjoyed their extended holiday weekend!

Listed below are this past weekend’s The Head and The Heart news and headlines from around the web. Enjoy!

The Most Criminally Overlooked Artists Of 2011 –
Possibly my favorite find of the weekend. I found it interesting that the author notes that she is surprised that “The Head And The Heart didn’t blow the hell up in 2011″. If this wasn’t blowing up, I can’t wait to see what 2012 has in store for these guys (and girl).

The Head and The Heart managed to keep the theme of making it to the top of 2011 lists alive this weekend:

The Head and The Heart News Rewind Nov. 7, 2011

by Daniel on November 8, 2011

Unfortunately it looks like there is nothing new or groundbreaking to report. From what I hear the band is having a great time in Europe, and is looking forward to playing their headlining gig at The Garage this Wednesday night in London. I did some poking around the internet and found an article featuring an interview with Josiah Johnson of The Head and The Heart, from early October by Bobby Tanzilo of In this particular interview Josiah spoke about the differences between being the opening band, and the headliner.

Josiah Said:

“I think we put a lot of pressure on ourselves as an opening band, because we don’t just want to be the opening band that people don’t really care about or don’t remember. We always put a lot of pressure on ourselves however many people we’re playing for.

Now we get to feel like a love back from the audience, which you don’t get as much as an opening band. There’s something about the headlining shows, the relationship between us and the audience feels really amazing. I can’t wait to be able to go out and do that. The headlining tour is going to be this whole different moment.

There’s a lot of pressure if people have seen you before which by now many people have by now, to give something more,” he says. “But I think, ultimately, it’s more rewarding. It feels less like straightforward entertainment and it feels more like just being able to connect with an audience that has a connection to your songs and that’s less pressure. Now we’re all on the same page. What we’re giving off of the stage is being given right back to us.”

I highly recommend checking out the entire interview and article if you get a chance, because even though it was written a month ago, the content is still ripe with flavor.
