One week after the new Headstones album exploded on scene, its single “Leave It All Behind” continues holding firm in the Top 5 of a Billboard mainstream rock chart.
“Leave It All Behind” – on the chart alongside another Kingston-founded band, Glorious Sons – is just one of the hard-hitting tracks featured on PEOPLESKILLS, Headstones’s tenth studio album since their 1987 launch here in Kingston.
