Feisty four-piece DEAD! have revealed the video for their new single SOMETHING MORE ORIGINAL.
You can watch the video here:
The track is an explosive punk-rock sing-along and another menacing leap forward. “We know we’re not breaking any new ground with our sound but we don’t care; that’s the whole point of Something More Original,” says Sam Matlock from the band.
“We’re talking about the apathy we were surrounded by growing up,” adds singer Alex Mountford, “it’s that vibe cut in with a proper British rock song. There’s a distinct sound; it’s classic song writing and you know it’s from England.”
The London based band are a gutsy and imaginative bunch that favour the DIY approach to life. Since their formation, the band have been finding unique venues to put on self-promoted shows, such as their recent gig at North London recording studio Livingston Studios.
The quartet aren’t the sort of people who wait for opportunities; they go out and hunt them down. With fire in their belly, they’ve toured, released their own music, made their own videos and now have a fervent fan club, The Damned Restless Future, who follow their every move. They are one of the UK’s most exciting new rock n roll bands, armed with a stack of raucous, punky anthems and a gung-ho, do-or-die attitude. This was the way it had to be. There are no half measures with DEAD! …
Their reputation as a thrilling live act has been cemented by chaotic, sweatbox gigs and a busy summer of festival performances, including Slam Dunk, Download, The Great Escape, Reading and Leeds. DEAD! followed these with appearances at Gloucester Underground Festival and Manchester Neighbourhood Festival, and now head out on a full support tour with FRANK CARTER & THE RATTLESNAKES, as follows:
