Motor City rock still has its hard and honed edge that was pioneered by the likes of the MC5, The Amboy Dukes, Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels, Iggy and the Stooges and Grand Funk Railroad. Born of this powerful legacy are melodic hard rockers Dead in 5. This fierce five-piece performs with a raw energy and hunger that can neither be bought nor faked. You either have “It” or you don’t. And Dead in 5 has “It” in spades.
There’s no corporate sheen marring the honest, and downright dirty rock n’ roll played by Dead in 5. The band grinds out intense musical gems with as much super-charged muscle as a new Mustang rolling off the assembly line. Turn the key, and FLOOR IT! Dead in 5’s music is not just an assertion – it’s an absolute DECLARATION of the POWER of Rock and Roll!
Evoking a sonic mash up of Clutch, Soundgarden, White Zombie and Led Zeppelin, the band’s dirty outlaw rock will make you raise your fists in salute to their musical juggernaut. It’s “Sons of Anarchy” meets “Fight Club” set in the post apocalyptic “Mad Max” environment of Detroit Rock City.
Since their debut show inside one of Detroit’s most notorious biker clubhouses in January 2013, Dead in 5 has become an in-demand live act headlining Metro Detroit’s top venues and festivals, in addition to support slots for national acts Five Finger Death Punch, Godsmack, Sevendust, Pop Evil, Candlebox, Skid Row, and Sponge. In July 2013, the band took first place in reality TV show “American Talent Hunters” Detroit search. In August, Dead in 5 were invited to play House of Harley’s exclusive party for Harley Davidson’s 110th Anniversary in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Dead in 5 is currently touring in support of their debut EP. 7 new songs from the band will be featured in the forthcoming feature film “Pro-Wrestlers Vs. Zombies” starring WWE wrestling legends Roddy Piper, Matt Hardy, Jim Dugan, Kurt Angle and Shane Douglas – hitting screens internationally in November 2013.
Creating music amid a bankrupt and corrupt city, the band knows they have nothing to lose. It’s ALL or NOTHING- and Dead in 5 is ALL IN!
Dead in 5’s debut CD is now available on Itunes, Cdbaby and Amazon.com. For more information on Dead in 5 please visit: facebook.com/deadinfive
