Dirty Heads new studio album Sound of Change, recently launched at Hard Rock Café Hollywood, CA, officially makes its Top 10 chart debut yesterday rocketing up to #8. The album also made its debut at #1 on the Independent Albums chart, #1 on the Alternative Albums chart, and #2 on the Rock Albums chart. Led by the sunny single "My Sweet Summer," now a Top 10 hit at alternative radio, the band recently released the official video online. Dirty Heads kick off the first leg of their 29-date U.S. summer tour, with Pepper and Aer, tonight in Minneapolis, MN.

Later this year the band will serve as Artist Ambassador for Hard Rock International and WhyHunger's Imagine There's No Hunger campaign. Through the program Hard Rock, WhyHunger and the Dirty Heads are raising much needed funds and awareness to connect children across the globe with nutritious meals for today and a future free from hunger.

Dirty Heads also recently partnered with WHYHUNGER and Hard Rock International, becoming ambassadors for WHYHUNGER'S Artists Against Hunger & Poverty program, working to end hunger and poverty by connecting people to nutritious, affordable food. Throughout the tour, auction packages for Dirty Heads Meet & Greets will be made available in 14markets and the band will be giving away support wristbands in exchange for a minimum donation to the cause on the road. Proceeds form the auctions will go to WhyHunger's Summer Meals Rock for Kids campaign, which helps to connect children in need with nutritious food during the summer months when childhood hunger spikes in the U.S. Recently, at Hard Rock Café Hollywood Blvd, the band spoke with KTLA about their involvement with WHYHUNGER.
