Together the band has sold more than three million albums and headlined packed venues worldwide, including sold-out shows at Colorado’s historic Red Rocks Amphitheatre.
Combining a mix of musical genres, with original songwriting and scorching guitar licks, Big Head Todd’s success is no mystery and continues with the their eleventh studio album, Black Beehive, set for release in 2014.
