Dead! are a fresh 5 piece ready to burst onto the UK's music scene! Inspired by Dia de los Muertos, rock'n'roll, and popstars, the sound has been described as a mix of My Chemical Romance, Taking Back Sunday and Lostprophets. Formed from the remnants of 4 other bands at the start of 2012, collectively the five members (Alex Mountford, , vocals, Jake Lucas, guitar, Sam Matlock, guitar, Sam Chappell, bass, and Scott Aldred, drums) have played the Isle Of Wight festival 3 times, opened the mainstage for the Foo Fighters, toured the UK and over-sold Southampton Joiners. After only one show together Dead have won the opening slot on the mainstage at Takedown Festival supporting Canterbury, Deaf Havana, Lower Than Atlantis, Skindred and more.
