Press release:

Southern California's (hed)pe have recently shot a politically charged video for “Suffa,” the first single from their upcoming new album Insomnia, which is slated for a July 17, 2007 release through Suburban Noize Records. The video can be viewed online here.

"We were trying to accomplish a couple things with the video. First, we wanted to get into the warrior mindset, and give respect to the troops,” said (hed)pe front man Jared Gomes. “Second, we wanted to stimulate thought about politicians, all over the world, who never see a battlefield and never step into the line of fire."

The album is the follow-up to last year’s Suburban Noize debut, Back 2 Base X, which lead to the group embarking on back-to-back sold out tours with Papa Roach and the Kottonmouth Kings, and headlining tours in Europe and Japan.

"This album turned out heavier than the last one, because that just seemed like the natural evolution of things. Having experimented with vintage 70s punk themes, we wanted to blend them with our heavier inclinations. We came a bit darker and moodier on this joint than on Back 2 Base X,” says Gomes about the shift towards a heavier sound on the band’s new album. “The lyrics stayed true to illuminati and new world order themes, but we also provided some straight club bangers, as well as the always appreciated ‘sexcore.’ We are definitely proud of ‘Insomnia,’ and we know our people are going to love this one."

In the meantime the dates have been announced for the upcoming Strange Noize Tour featuring (hed)pe, Tech N9ne, Kottonmouth Kings, Blaze Ya’ Dead Homie and Subnoize Souljaz.
