“Rescue me is our ode to California and we thought it would be rad to flip a Red Hot Chili Peppers hook. Not only did they influence us but they are one of the most influential and defining bands ever to come out of Cali. So it was a no-brainer. It just felt right.” – Dirty Heads vocalist Jared Watson
