Before hitting the road, the band will stop by "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" to perform their hit single, "Celebrate," featuring the Unlikely Candidates this Wednesday, 14 March. The tour will make a Las Vegas stop at Mandalay Bay Beach at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino Friday, 29 June at 9 p.m.

Dirty Heads recently revealed the official video for "Celebrate," the second single off the band's new album SWIM TEAM (out now on Five Seven Music). Currently in the top 20 and racing up the charts at Alternative Radio, "Celebrate" juxtaposes joy and nostalgia with beguiling alternative pop and lyrical honesty. The emotional heart of the record, the song tells the story of a touring band living their dream while simultaneously longing for home and the families they've left behind.

Per Dirty Heads' Dustin "Duddy B" Bushnell, "It's a look inside a band and touring as well as the journey you take to make it. We're not bitching about anything, but you're on the road and you miss your family. We all started doing this a while ago. None of us were married at the time. None of us had kids. Now it's all different."

The video, directed by Wayne Isham (Metallica, Foo Fighters, Michael Jackson), features an evocative band performance as real family photos and home footage are projected on and around them. Dirty Heads will be revealing additional behind-the-scenes content, personal interviews and more from the making of this video in the coming weeks.

Celebrate follows the California quintet's hit summer single and Spotify viral track "Vacation," which went Top 10 at Alternative Radio and was the No. 1 Most Added at Alternative Radio for two straight weeks upon its release at top stations including Sirius XM Alt Nation, KROQ, ALT 92.3 New York, ALT 105.3 San Francisco, KKDO Sacramento and KPNTY St. Louis. Both tracks are taken from SWIM TEAM, which sees Dirty Heads pushing their sound, moving between pop, alternative, hip-hop, reggae and rock with the same spirit and spark that's powered them since the beginning. The album's wide-ranging sound is also due in part to the diverse team of collaborators: Jonas Jeberg (Demi Lovato, Juicy J, Jason Derulo), "Lay Me Down" partner-in-crime Rome (Enrique Iglesias) of Sublime with Rome, Blueprint (Jay-Z, Kanye West, Timbaland, Eminem, Nas, Prodigy), Oren Yoel (Miley Cyrus, Kanye West), HEAVY (Andrew McMahon) and The Score.
