ALBUM: Kill Them with Kindness
FILE UNDER: Indie / Pop / Rock
INFO: Having gone through numerous name changes, losing a founding member, funding a self-booked national tour on CD-R demo burns(and managing to make enough money to pay their rent), Headlights now find themselves with a new label to call home.Headlights began as a four-piece combo from Champaign, IL and features ex-Absinthe Blind (Parasol Records) and Maserati(Kindercore) members. Following the break up of Absinthe Blind in 2003, guitarist/vocalist Tristan Wraight toured with Athens, GA's Maserati while several other ex-Absinthe Blind members began writing and performing as the three-piece Orphans. Upon his return to Champaign in winter 2004, Wraight and Orphans' keyboardist/vocalist Erin Fein began collaborating on new material. After playing a few shows with Orphans, the band and Wraight decided to change the name, scrap some of the old material and begin anew as Headlights. In spring 2004, they entered the studio to record their debut release, The Enemies EP.
