It’s Official – Horsehead to Reform

Melbourne’s Horsehead are getting back together.

The band has announced their first official gig in nearly 20 years will be on 1 February 2020 at the Corner Hotel in Richmond.

Scott Kingman, Cameron McKenzie, Andy McLean, Mick Vallance and Craig Waugh will once again become Horsehead for shows 20 years after disbanding in 2000.

The reunion gathered momentum in May when the band reformed to perform at the 50th birthday of Melbourne media mogul Jeff Jenkins.

Horsehead were very much a 90s band, releasing three albums ‘Horsehead’ (1993), ‘Onism’ (1996) and ‘Goodbye Mothership’ (1999).

Oil and Water





Horsehead performances include Big Day Out 1993, Calder Park Raceway opening for Guns N Roses in 1993, two months on tour with Midnight Oil, an appearance on Alternative Nation with Tool, Nine Inch Nails and Lou Reed, opening for Alice Cooper in 1997 and Metallica in 1999.

Vallance bailed out of the band in 2000 and shortly after Horsehead broke-up.

But wait, there’s more. In November Golden Robot Records will release a 12-vinyl box-set called ‘The Legacy’ featuring the collected works of Horsehead. The collection will include the three studio albums, a brand new album of unreleased tracks called ‘Electric’, a new before released live album and an album of b-sides.

Also for the first time Golden Robot will make everything by Horsehead available digitally for streaming.

‘The Legacy’ is due on 29 November 2019 through Golden Robot Records.

Horsehead will play the Corner Hotel 1 February 2020. Get tickets here
