Written by Curtis Gardner
How was the group formed?
PRIM! (bassist and singer) + Catfight (drummer and guitar player) + The Wolf Sisters (vocals and keys). Some of us have known each other for a long time, and moving to Nashville brought us all together musically.
What genres of music do you for influence from?
Many genres, but mostly grunge/90s alternative
How would you describe your musical style?
Space rock! Edgy but very relatable - it's hard to describe because we draw from so many influences.
How did u get the name Dead Deads?
We started as a Dead Milkmen tribute band called The Dead Milkmaids. After playing a tribute show, we realized we wanted to write our own material, and since every other Dead "something" or the "something" Dead was taken, we decided on The Dead Deads.
What is a live performance like from Dead Deads?
A high-energy and interactive party dreamscape for everyone from headbangers to shoe-gazers.
Is their anyone musically that the group would like to collaborate with?
Dave Grohl, Bjork, Missy Elliott, Rivers Cuomo, Ani DiFranco, They Might Be Giants, Drake, Grace Potter, Cheap Trick, 2Chainz, Halestorm, Pink
How does it feel to be nominated for 2015 Indie Ville TV Award?
It's an awesome honor! We created "Rainbeau" as soon as we found out we were going on tour with Halestorm last fall. After about two months of hard work and 2-3 days in the studio recording live to tape, we had our first full-length. We're really proud of our creation, but we're more proud that this town supports it, too.
What's is next up for deaddeads? Any project(s) that you are currently working on?
We're writing right now for an EP we plan to release this summer
What are your plans for the year 2015 and beyond?
We'll be writing/recording this summer/fall for another full-length record and we'll tour with that this fall/winter. We've been reaching out to the venues we played in while we were on the road with Halestorm - the fans in those cities have been really amazing and supportive, so we'd like to go back and show them our appreciation.
