2014 marks the start of an exciting period for emerging Washington DC Folk-Rock collective The Deadmen. Riding high on a swell of attention in their nation’s capital, the band will release their debut EP through Eight Gang Switch on March 17th. This month, they kick things off by announcing a stream of their forthcoming single Let Your Fingers Rule.
Described by the band as “a reflection on self discipline and friendship, love and circumstance, life and death and the profound depth of value.”, The Deadmen find themselves quickly transcending the sum of their parts, the three complimenting each other to stunning affect, painting an American landscape of clattering thunder, gentle rains and shards of light.
With the core line-up completed by Josh Read (guitar, vocals), Justin Jones (guitar, vocals) and Justin Hoben (guitar, vocals), Read says of their collaborations;
“I think we all have quite different writing styles, different ways of chewing the bone. No matter how close circumstance seems, we’re all going through different things. I feel we’re all aware that what someone else knows, benefits the group”.
The debut EP from The Deadmen is set for release. Joined by John Hutchins(Army of Me) on bass and Miles Nasta on drums, a 7 inch Record Store Day release will appear, followed by a full‐length in the summer.
