UP FOR RAN$OM SINGLE
Currently On Headline UK Tour
“As an English band, Top of The Pops always seemed like a rite of passage; we’re not happy letting that go, so we got our label to pay for a video where we can pretend. It’s basically the next best thing …”
UP FOR RAN$OM is a ballsy, explosive take on British rock and truly encapsulates the visceral, raw sound that DEAD! are steadily becoming known for. “I was walking back from a 24-hour garage one night and got the hook in my head,” says singer Alex Mountford. “The song is not about me, it’s about a character and a story. People should derive their own meaning from what they hear. But don’t be held to ransom; make your own choices and don’t be easily swayed.”
The track, which was recently premiered by Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1, is the fourth single since the band signed a major record deal with Infectious Music. It follows last year’s YOU’RE SO CHEAP and SOMETHING MORE ORIGINAL, and ENOUGH ENOUGH ENOUGH from April of this year.
