Dirty Heads announced special band merch and reissues to celebrate their debut full-length 'Any Port In A Storm'. The album just turned 10, but it was not successful at first.
If you asked Dirty Heads fans how they first found out about the band, the most popular answer would probably be "Lay Me Down". The collaboration with Rome Ramirez (Sublime With Rome) arrived in early 2010, eighteen months after Any Port In A Storm. "Lay Me Down" remains their biggest hit to date. It set a new record for longest stay at #1 on Billboard's Alternative Songs chart by an independent record label (11 weeks). The track also earned the band its only gold record, awarded by the RIAA for 500,000 in sales.

Any Port In A Storm did not set the world on fire at first. The success of "Lay Me Down" prompted a deluxe reissue of the album with that track and 8 others. The Southern California reggae rockers began touring with like-minded acts, developing a loyal fanbase. And since their savvy decision to branch out sonically, integrating pop and dance influences on their fourth album Sound Of Change (2014), Dirty Heads widened their appeal and now tour consistently as headliners.
Dirty Heads announced some limited edition merch to celebrate the album's 10th anniversary. The swirly blue vinyl looks so cool, right?
