Nashville supergroup The Dead Deads return to Chattanooga May 8 at Rhythm & Brews, marking their first appearance at that venue. The show is of special significance to two of the band members, Chattanooga’s own Wolf sisters, Leticia and Mandy.
“That place is always home to me. I’ve written songs about it! Now I’m gonna land my spaceship in it and all my friends are gonna jump out and melt the walls,” said Leticia.
The Dead Deads, who completed their first national tour last December, have garnered critical acclaim and serious industry attention for their music/stage show that, frankly speaking, can’t be compared to anything else happening today. Chuck Garric, bass player for Alice Cooper, had this to say of their act:
“I don’t care where you live, you must go see this band The Dead Deads. I felt like I walked into CBGB 1979 the way rock used to be! The Dead Deads are the real deal.”
Punk, metal, grunge and alternative collide to form the basis of the band’s sound, while their high-energy stage presence is full of dark humor and joyful weirdness. It seems likely that Bootsy Collins, The Breeders and David Johansen (along with many others) have contributed something to the razor-sharp lovechild that is The Dead Deads.
The Dead Deads are headlining the upcoming show, the featured artist is sElf and the enigmatic Danimal Pinson will be opening that evening. Collectively, this promises to be one of the most incredible collections of talent under one roof, anywhere.
