Square Roots Promotions presents The Dead South.
Fresh from a completely SOLD OUT UK tour in April 2018, The Dead South return to the UK with their unique mix of Americana, Bluegrass and Country….that explodes!
The Dead South have been described as outlaws, modern hillbillies and Mumford and Sons’ evil twins, but the best way to describe the Regina-based band is fearless. They’re a rare musical commodity – a band that’s equally compelling on record as they are on stage.
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. ” (Vocalist/guitarist Nate Hilts)
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 to their distinctive hillbilly pioneer look; a dress code, Hilts says, “ that ’ s become a staple of who we are! ”
“Something different, something raw! The Dead South can make you forget your troubles and even what century you ’ re in ! ” (No Depression)
“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!” (Billboard)
