Actor, rocker, and front man of The Headstones, Hugh Dillon, stopped by Studio Q to chat about his band's new record Love + Fury. It's their first album in 11 years, and Dillon says time and tragedy have turned the musicians into a different kind of band.

The younger version of himself would sooner spit into the crowd than rehearse for a show, but he now says that Dillon can "eat it."

"This band could beat the hell out of that band, because the raw talent was there but not the work ethic," he said.

But this reunion album, which was sparked by a death close to the band, is no cash cow. Take a listen to the interview to hear that story and how the album became the band's first ever top ten record.
