TEENAGE HEAD TO PERFORM THE HALFTIME SHOW AT THIS YEAR’S CFL LABOUR DAY CLASSIC GAME ON MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 2 AND WILL BE SIGNING COPIES OF TORNADO ON TIM HORTONS FIELD AFTER THE GAME
30 AUGUST 2019 (TORONTO, ON) – Platinum-selling Canadian punk rock band Teenage Head release the limited-edition expanded reissue of their 1983 release, Tornado, today via Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company.
Originally a six-track mini LP, Tornado was the band’s first international release outside of Canada. For the 2019 reissue, this mini LP has been expanded with the vinyl now a 14-track full album and the CD/digital album containing 21 songs. Included on all formats are the six songs originally released in 1983, the new 2019 versions which have been remixed by music producer Mark Berry (David Bowie, Headstones, Billy Idol, Joan Jett), and never-before-released demos from 1982 that have been restored by Grammy Award-winning producer Peter J. Moore (The Band, Joe Strummer, Cowboy Junkies). See the full tracklisting below and listen to the expanded reissue of Tornado HERE.
This limited-edition reissue of Tornado is packed with collector items including rare band memorabilia, a Teenage Head family tree outlining the history of the band which dates back to 1971, new liner notes and a forward written by original band member Stephen Mahon, and a pair of original concert tickets unique to each pressing. Additionally, the first 100 copies of the 180g green and yellow split vinyl that were signed by band members Stephen Mahon, Gordie Lewis and original Teenage Head drummer Nick Stipanitz, have completely sold out!
The release of the Tornado reissue comes just days before Teenage Head’s hometown performance in Hamilton at the CFL Labour Day Classic halftime show. For the September 2nd performance, the Teenage Head lineup will consist of the original trio of friends from Westdale Collegiate (bassist Stephen Mahon, guitarist Gordie Lewis, singer Dave Rave) with the addition of Gene Champagne (previously of The Killjoys) on drums. Following the game, Teenage Head will be signing autographs on Tim Hortons Field. Copies of the limited-edition expanded reissue of Tornado will be available for purchase on site.
