Quite possibly the most exciting thing to come out of Redhill in the last three centuries, Trevor’s Head markedly circle in three distinct orbits around stoner, punk and prog, creating a heavy, sonic vibe quite unlike anybody else out there.
Their new album “A View From Below, released on 5th May via APF Records (Mastiff, Desert Storm, The Brother’s Keg, Video Nasties) is a lean and cohesive expression of the power trio’s precision, which marks the next stage in the genre-bending and ever-evolving sound that is Trevor’s Head. For first single ‘Call of the Deep’, Roger Atkins (guitar/vocals) states,
“These last few years have been tough for us – for everyone – and I have constantly been struck by the strength I’ve seen in others. Whether battling personal loss, mental health difficulties, financial stresses, relationship troubles, whatever. This song is a nod to anyone who keeps fighting through the calm and through the storm. I have unending respect and pride in anyone who can do that, and this song is for them. Even if it didn’t go to plan for the protagonist this time.”

Following in the footsteps of their last three albums, it’s the product of the band’s fully collaborative approach to songwriting, where each member adds to the eclectic stew, creating an eccentric and unique record. Matt Ainsworth (drums/vocals) comments,
“We’re really proud of this album, it feels like the best representation of our band to date. Each track takes you on a journey and there are a ton of different musical influences, but this time we approached the writing process with a mind to make something more cohesive than our previous releases – it’s diverse, yet it still sounds like the songs were all meant to be on the same record together. You can hear how we’ve grown as musicians, too. We honestly don’t think anyone else sounds like Trevor’s Head… guess we’ll find out if that’s a good thing or not!”
Lyrically many of the songs on ‘A View From Below’, are a reflection of the hardship that many have endured over the past few years and continue to endure now. They are, according to Roger Arkins (guitar/vocals, ‘a celebration of courage, resilience and determination in the face of huge obstacles.’
Having gigged relentlessly for many years, with high points on the road being shared stages with (among others) Mondo Generator, Nebula and Colour Haze, as well as appearing at numerous stoner rock festivals across the country including Desertfest, Trevor’s Head are primed and ready to release their next album, “A View From Below”, through APF Records in May 2023.
