Outlaws, modern hillbillies… Mumford & Sons' evil twins… This is old-school bluegrass filtered through a punk sensibility, all fuelled with an energy that suggests they tear the roof off live!
Fresh from a completely sold out UK tour in April 2018, The Dead South return with their unique mix of Americana, bluegrass and country… that explodes!
While The Dead South's signature blend of bluegrass and classic folk is familiar, it's also eminently fresh; fuelled by the kind of energy and ethic you'd associate with a punk band. "A lot of our inspiration comes from an old school feel, but our sound is an amalgamation of the we all like, and the punk influence is definitely there," says vocalist/guitarist Nate Hilts.
"Something different, something raw! The Dead South can make you forget your troubles and even what century you're in!"
Few bands set themselves apart the way The Dead South do, musically and in terms of personality; from their recordings through their rip-it-up live shows and their distinctive hillbilly-cum-pioneer look; a dress code, Hilts says, "that's become a staple of who we are!"
"Their aptitude for delivering a traditional roots sound with the energy and enthusiasm of a group of young upstarts has gained The Death South a massive worldwide audience in a very short amount of time!"
