Headless Fowl was released in April 2012 by Big John Bates - the first post-Voodoo Dollz EP and heralds the change to what the band calls Americana Noir.
Headless Fowl and Battered Bones were recorded simultaneously and released separately as an EP and LP. The tracks were mixed and mastered in Denver by Robert Ferbrache (Slim Cessna's Auto Club, Wovenhand, 16 Horsepower), creator of the "Denver Sound".
These sessions were split with six songs (and two videos) released in North America as Headless Fowl in April 2012 by Frontman Records (Canada/CD Baby distribution) and the remainder released in Europe as "Battered Bones" on Rookie Records (Germany/Cargo Distribution) in Sept 2012. The "Headless" release was accompanied by a March/April 2012 co-headlining tour of the US and Canada with Murder By Death. Upon hearing the release Jello Biafra stated the band was "extremely cool" and began including their recordings through Alternative Tentacles distribution.
