Headcage released their newest single 'The Walk' on the 13th of October 2018 at a Brisbane launch show at Crowbar in Fortitude Valley.
The song has its roots at a jam session at Christian's house. "I had a riff with open strings that was a bit faster, even had a little demo," he says.
"But when I showed it to Glyn he felt that was a bit too fast, so he told me to take it easy a bit and said 'play it like a caterpillar'. I just started laughing, but the idea got stuck in my head and we tried again thinking of a slow, heavy pace, like a giant, groovy caterpillar.
"We tried again with the acoustic and bang! We got all the structure immediately. Later we took it to the rehearsal room to make it more 'Headcagey' and it ended up sounding so big and groovy to us; it soon became a favourite."
