The Dead Boys To Commence UK Tour On 31st January 2018

Dead Boys YLS 40Throughout their 2017 US tour the Dead Boys have brought their classic energy to a whole new crowd, bridging the gap between generations of rockers. A quintessential component of the classic punk era, one cannot mention the iconic New York CBGB’s scene without mentioning the Dead Boys. Standing on the same mantle as the Sex Pistols and the Ramones, the Dead Boys are notorious for their sonic sound, a blend of proto-punk elements kicked up with a fiercer, more ferocious energy. They’re still loud, and still snotty… just with an extra 40 years of experience and they’re coming to the UK, the tour kicks off at Leeds Brudenell Social Club on the 31st January and runs through to the 7th February at Nottingham Rescue Rooms.

Legendary Proto Punks ‘Death’ Release New Single ‘Cease Fire’

Death Cease FireLegendary Detroit band Death have released their new single, Cease Fire, on digital and vinyl formats, Death are expected to release another new song, Give It Back, in the summer and they plan to follow the single up with a full EP later this year that will feature both singles and two new songs. The band has this to say about Cease Fire.

The new Death single is a continuation of the social conscious voice that rock n’ roll music states to all people. If John Lennon were alive in this world today, we are sure he would echo the same sentiments, because we have to first put the guns down and stop the senseless shooting so we can Give Peace A Chance.

You can stream Cease Fire here and order the single via Death‘s website here
