A band that do things their own way, DEAD! are happy to announce a string of dates this summer, kicking off with a special DAMNED RESTLESS FUTURE show in Glasgow. August will see the four-piece embark on an extensive tour across the UK debuting new songs, including the current single ENOUGH ENOUGH ENOUGH, as they prepare to announce their debut full length album.
The opening night in Glasgow will see the boys go back to their DIY roots of self-promoting and running everything by themselves. The band now brand these as DAMNED RESTLESS FUTURE shows, as a tribute to their loyal contingent of fans who have followed them since their infancy.
As the band say, “Everyone knows someone from an older generation who talks about seeing The Clash or a band at a squat or a house show. We put on these unorthodox gigs for our fans and ourselves so we can also get a piece of that magic. Hopefully in turn, it will be something that our fans can tell stories about to a younger generation one day. It’s all about bringing the danger and the excitement back to live rock music”.
DEAD! also play several UK festivals this summer, including Bristol Fat Lip, Kendal Calling and Bestival. Full headline dates for August as follows:
One of the hottest young bands to have emerged over the last few months are London based four-piece DEAD! Their guitar laden, anthemic new single, ENOUGH, ENOUGH, ENOUGH, is now available to stream and listen to, with a full video to follow shortly. In the meantime you check out the video here:
The band say of the video: “We wanted to go for something loud and colourful; something mental. Enough Enough Enough is a simple rock song; all we needed was a video to show you how we work live, and a chance for us to get onto your screen and up in your face. Due to events of the night before, we may have forgotten to sleep.”
Singer Alex Mountford says of the track: “It’s a really critical self-evaluation, covering the shortfalls and negative aspects of my personality. But hopefully people can find common ground with it, maybe question their shortfalls too. Sometimes there comes a point when you have to say I’ve had enough”.
DEAD! were barely out of their teens when they formed and, with a raging fire in their belly, embarked on a tour of Europe, DIY style. Upon their return they moved into a house in London together, released their own music, made their own videos and now have a fervent fan base that follow their every move. With a catalogue of festivals, sold out shows and prestigious supports under their belt, support from a plethora of BBC Radio 1 DJs and bulging socials, DEAD! are well and truly poised to make their boot mark on 2017.
The band entered the studio earlier this year, armed with a stack of raucous, punky anthems and youthful swagger, and recorded their debut album which is due for release after the summer.
DEAD! will once again be hammering the festival circuit this year. Dates as follows:
Sat 29 LEEDS Live at Leeds Festival
Sun 30 LEICESTER Handmade Festival
Sun 11 DONNINGTON Download Festival
Sat 29 BRISTOL Fat Lip Festival
Sun 30 KENDAL Kendal Calling
