With the fury of five thousand flaming forest fires, we fight!
Rock Opera, musical and visual assault, not to be missed.
The Dead Deads
A supergroup formed from members of The Wolf Sisters, PRIM! and Catfight in the summer of 2013, this powerhouse of live performance is based in Nashville, Tennessee. The musical influences of the group vary from girl to girl, but the common thread is drum-based rock bands like The Melvins, The Foo Fighters and Torche. Audiences may be curious as they see five girls with X's over their eyes set up amps and tune guitars, but once the wall of sound washes over them, they forget who they were there to see and are spirited away into the dark and magical world of The Dead Deads.
The Dead Deads live show is high-energy, dark and fun. Pink smoke (when allowed by venue) floats from the stage as metal riffs are blended with doo-wop harmonies and classic pop sensibilities to create a new brand of rock–brutal, silly and sublime. The Dead Deads are for fans of everything from 90's girl bands like The Breeders to modern metal bands like Mastadon, to alternative rock bands like The Foo Fighters or even Weezer. The Dead Deads bring the rock, in its many forms, and live music fans are jumping on the bandwagon in droves.
Their debut EP produced by Brian Carter at Paradox and mixed by Keiffer Infantino at Burn the Sails Studios released this spring on Tishimon Records. They are currently back in the studio with Brian Carter to do their first full-length record entitled "Rainbeau," which will be mixed by Matt Mahaffey/sElf.
Makeup And Vanity Set
Makeup And Vanity Set makes fantasy arpeggio electro 8-bit music. Squelching melodies and pounding kick drums are sequenced on samplers and laptops with synthesizers and handclaps. He has spent the last eight years as part of a building electro scene in the south, touring and playing shows across the country. At shows he usually winds up rolling in the floor covered in liquids and sweat. Wrapped in cables and screaming.
He wears a ski mask.
Out of the depths of Music City, USA emerges the next evolutionary step of life on earth that is BORN EMPTY.
"...a mixture of The Foo Fighters and The Flaming Lips, with a dash of Incubus and The Mars Volta."
Coming off a relentless 200 date, 18 month, 30 state tour, with a live show that simply must be seen to be believed, these Nashvillians have sequestered themselves in the ThoughtRockChaos bunker, developing new material to follow up on their last release, The Odyssey Chaoti-Pop Oddity. Produced by Brian Virtue (Jane's Addiction, Deftones, 30 Seconds to Mars, Chevelle), TOCPO is an unstoppable chaos machine that mercilessly levels all cynicism and anxiety in its path and leaves only positivity and big wide grins in its wake.
Born Empty's infectious, explosive sound is impossible to resist - or forget.
