HELLOWEEN singer Andi Deris has returned with his first solo album since 1999. Not so much a solo effort in its original sense, but recorded in a band envoirement to achieve a real band feeling, “Million Dollar Haircuts On Ten Cent Heads” will be released on November 22 viaearMUSIC.

Written and composed by Andi Deris himself, “Million Dollar Haircuts On Ten Cent Heads”has a crispy, modern sound to it. The diverse, high-class production is snotty, dirty and brutally honest and is described in a press release as “a healthy mixture of HELLOWEEN‘s recent records combined with ‘Master Of The Rings’ tradition (Andi‘s first HELLOWEENalbum).”

Recorded together with his band BAD BANKERS“Million Dollar Haircuts On Ten Cent Heads” sees Deris criticizing the economic system and its corruption. Although the topic may seem a bit dull, the heavy guitar riffs and Deris‘ recognizable voice clearly make a point: “fuck banks, fuck managers, fuck bankers.” He explains: “Obviously we despise everything around banks, managers and bankers who are clearly responsible for the shit that goes on nowadays (and most certainly in our future), so it felt very good to vocally tell them what we think about them. Sure, therefore it’s highly explicit but hey… who gives a fuck? That’s what they deserve… and it helps the music to really kick some ass.”
