Australian legends DEAD tour NZ

Our good friends DEAD from Australia are plunging onto these shore’s, we lucky lucky antipodeans, here’s their press release.

Australian group DEAD come to NZTwo piece DIY Punk/Sludge unit DEAD are touring in support of their debut LP – THUNDAAAAAH! It’s a great album and you should probably buy it.

Released on LP/Digital via their own label WeEmptyRooms (Hard Ons, Fire Witch, Dad They Broke Me etc.) the band has already toured South East Asia and USA extensively to promote the albums regional release on LP (WantageUSA) and Cassette (Ricecooker).

DEAD features members of Fire Witch, Fangs of… and Inappropriate Tough Guy Behaviour.

Their U.S tour with Unstoppable Death Machines saw them play 30 dates right across the country including shows with Hammerhead, Vaz, Gay Witch Abortion, Hex Machine, Thrones and label mates Big Business, White Shit, Pygmy Shrews and Japanther. All those bands were great but DEAD are better.

In South East Asia they trained, planed and bussed between Malaysia, Singapore, Java and Philippines including a bill with seminal punk band Carburetor Dung.

In Australia they have run up and down the east coast more times than one cares to count, visited places few bands of their ilk ever play, supported Earthless (USA), Cough (USA), Eagle Twin (USA), Monarch (France), Hard Ons and more and gotten very loud and very sweaty in living rooms, record stores, galleries and pubs along the way.

All this in less than a year of existence!

In short; DEAD don’t fuck around.
They print their own merch on non sweat-shop and recycled garments, tour relentlessly and show no signs of slowing down. A DEAD show is a full body experience. It is not for everyone but can you risk not finding out?
