Dead Confederate’s music is intense - a lumbering, southern, psychedelic grizzly that reveals itself like fireworks in slow motion. They’re raw rock songs with a drawl. But when a charge is needed, Dead Confederate can cut through the fog in favor of razor sharp punkers that pay tribute to nineties rock heroes - a rock edge that helps them find balance against more challenging soundscapes. Lyrically, Dead Confederate are in search of truth – a destination that conjures great beauty as it does gripping dolor. One might compare Dead Confederate to an American version of The Verve, but listen close and there are also elements as disparate as Ennio Morricone’s spaghetti western soundtracks and Duane Allman with a head full of ether. Regardless, Dead Confederate never lose that slightly unhinged sense of urgency - the beast they create may lumber, but it’s always prepared to strike. Dead Confederate was formed in August 2006 by musicians hailing from Augusta, GA, where seeds of the current lineup were planted as far back as high school. Members now reside in Athens, GA. The band recently signed with TAO Records/Razor & Tie Entertainment. Their eponymous EP is available now; a full-length album will be released later this year. Dead Confederate: John Watkins – Vocals, Piano/Organ Hardy Morris – Vocals, Rhythm Guitar Walker Howle – Lead/Slide Guitar Jason Scarboro – Drums Brantley Senn – Vocals, Bass
