Dead Country are going out on tour for two weeks with the Toadies. The first date will be July 17th in Houston, TX at the House of Blues. The video for the song “Euro Thrash” premiered earlier in the month and can be viewed here.
Dead Country released a self-titled EP in April which was recorded at the Foo Fighters‘ Studio 606 in Los Angeles, features four tracks “Euro Thrash,” “The Shade,” “Satori In Luzern” & “Sea Change.” You can purchase the EP right now from iTunes or Amazon.
Lead singer Nick Long created Dead Country in late 2008 after he moved back to L.A. from Switzerland. Influences such as Nirvana, Fugazi, Jawbreaker and Rites of Spring propel the band’s thought-provoking lyrics, rhythmic melodies and driving sound.
Most recently Dead Country went on a west coast tour with the recently reunited Far. For three weeks in March the band went out on the road with The Bronx and also played shows with Sunny Day Real Estate in 2009.
The band is currently giving away an MP3 download of “Euro Thrash” which you can get here.
