WHAT THE MEDIA SAYS ABOUT HEAD WITH WINGS
“From the moment the picked guitars of opener “Goodbye Sky” make their sun-kissed presence felt, it’s clear this is an album boasting an embarrassment of riches on the melody front.”
Planet Rock Magazine ★★★★ 4/5
“There are more than enough points of melancholic majesty to make this well worth a listen.”
“There’s a passion in the vocal delivery that matches the subject matter.”
“In many ways there are more interesting musical ideas in one Head With Wings track, than on entire albums of other so-called “progressive” bands.”
The Prog Space ★★★★★ 5/5
“From Worry To Shame is an outstanding, dark, sincere album that is sure to take this duo to the next level.”
Distorted Sound Magazine ★★★★★★★★★ 9/10
Head with Wings are storytellers of sound. Textured, ethereal, and blissfully haunting, the Connecticut based quintet creates boundary-pushing rock songs that straddle the aesthetic line between art music and narrative drama.
“We often start naive and green and either blossom into something remarkable, or we fizzle out—resigning to the life that we feared all along; the one we’ve been resisting – – an uncertain path, a repetitive/menial existence, and the promise of a life without limitations. How far are you willing to go to either abandon or protect the way of life that you’ve been leading?”
These words from Joshua Corum paint the scene for the first act of atmospheric alternative rock quartet Head with Wings’ next chapter and release of a brand new song titled ‘In A House Without Clocks’.

Swelling into heart-searing vocal peaks and commanding streaks of expressive lead guitar,“In a House without Clocks” sets the tone for a pivotal moment of change, with Corum rising to the occasion as one of the eminent voices in modern alternative music.
Bittersweet and overflowing with yearning, Joshua Corum leaves the listener with the parting questions and thoughts on the song:
“Would you consider a life without a path … or would you fear it would all just fall apart—the plan that never started, the waters left uncharted? The dark side of pursuing one’s dreams and the toll time takes on ambitions that were once so vivid are laid bare.
Amidst sweeping changes felt on a global scale, aspirations were put on hold, radiant futures dimmed, lives ended prematurely, and dreams were left to rot on the vine. For so many, the struggle was a silent one—a daily war waged alone.”
The collective’s first musical output since 2018’s critically-acclaimed debut, ‘From Worry to Shame’, presents a concise summation of the group’s collective growth as artists and individuals. This new material dives deeper into the quartet’s textural and emotive sound exploration with a timely personal narrative of self-discovery and the anxiety of change.

ABOUT HEAD WITH WINGS’ DEBUT ALBUM ‘FROM WORRY TO SHAME’ (2018)
From Worry to Shame covers the rich breadth of human emotion across nine chapters of an overarching storyline that inhabits the mind of the listener long after its final note has decayed.
The album’s narrative revolves around a troubled school teacher who loses his daughter in a school shooting. This incident incites an insurmountable period of grief that destroys his marriage and leads to the suicide of his wife. The protagonist begins to withdraw from society and enters a long period of isolated depression. After a year or so of isolation, he finds himself as a new man; rid of the memories of his past and ready to replace them.
Inspiration for the album’s chronicle can be linked to the likes of the Sandy Hook Massacre, the Cheshire Home Invasion, and the kidnapping/murder of Joshua’s cousin, Meredith Emerson, in 2008. The release of From Worry to Shame marked a 10 year anniversary of Meredith’s death, with Joshua wishing to raise awareness about the importance of remaining astute when journeying through life.
