Nashville Sunday Night | The Dead Deads with Hillbilly Casino
Every Sunday night, Lightning 100 brings you our critically acclaimed live concert series featuring national, regional and local artists. The show broadcasts live from 3rd & Lindsley on Sundays from 8-10pm.
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.
In December 2014 they wrapped their first national tour with Halestorm, dramatically growing their fanbase through their wild live show and insidious charm at meet and greets. Their debut full-length record “Rainbeau” produced by Brian Carter at Paradox and mixed by Matt Mahaffey/sElf was recorded live to tape in three days and released in November to rave reviews calling the album, “the weirdest wonderland of accessible punk and rock you’ve heard in awhile,” and “one of the better albums of the year.”
Spring 2015 finds the girls hard at work on a new record, with a scheduled teaser EP release in summer 2015, and the full album slated for the end of 2015. Look for The Dead Deads on the road this summer or on the high seas where they will be ripping alongside their heroes on Motorhead’s Motorboat, and the ShipRocked Cruise in January 2016.
