Hailing from the Australian city of Castlemaine, the noise rock duo Dead returns in 2017 with the third installment of five LP series called "The Trilogy" and an album that heads in an entirely different direction to last year’s "Untitle."
This new release, "We Won’t Let You Sleep," features a guest appearance by Kevin Rutmanis (Cows/Melvins/Hepa.Titus) and again sees engineer Toshi Kasai (Melvins, Helmet, Big Business) on the dials.
"We Won’t Let You Sleep" was recorded and produced at Sound of Sirens Studios in LA either side of a recent U.S. tour. The album is due to drop April 28th and you can check out new song "Chartreuse Blew" below. More...
Australian power duo Dead releases new album "Untitle" tomorrow through We Empty Rooms, which was recorded and mixed by Mike Deslandes (Cosmic Psychos, The Nation Blue). Check out a full advance stream of "Untitle" below.
Australian power duo Dead punch above their weight to bring you "Untitle," album number two in The Trilogy (A Series of Four). The oddly named "Untitle" is due for release as summer ends via We Empty Rooms. Stream new song "Don’t Pray For Us" below.
For "Untitle," Dead shifted into three-piece mode with the addition of cult one-man weirdo band BJ Morriszonkle***. No one knows exactly what he played on the record and maybe it’s safest not to know. Armed with a DIY recording setup, he entered a garden shed filled with broken instruments and emerged days later covered in sweat, clutching a USB, his parts contained therein.
Recorded and mixed by Mike Deslandes (Cosmic Psychos, The Nation Blue) "Untitle" by Dead will be released on the 30th of September, 2016 via We Empty Rooms. More...
Following a maiden trip across the Pacific last year, Australia's gruesome bass and drum twosome Dead has washed back onto U.S. soil for another putrid invasion of our Western shores.

Having spread seeds across at least three continents since the band's 2010 inception, Melbourne, Australia-based duo Dead will return to the U-S-of-A in just a few short weeks on a DIY trek of the finer dives the Northwestern states have to offer.
In 2011, Dead released debut LP, "Thundaaaaah," on Wantage USA and in Australia on its own label, We Empty Rooms. The "Idiots" LP, released in Australia by We Empty Rooms last year, will now see stateside release through Portland label Eolian Empire.
Set for infiltration on 180-gram LP and digital download, Eolian will officially drop "Idiots" on August 13th, just days after Dead ships in for a second tour of duty in the States. Dates for the trek are as follows:
