Dead! have announced the release of their debut album, The Golden Age Of Not Even Trying which will be released later this month via Infectious BMG. “There’s blood, sweat, arguments, defining moments and some of the best and worst times of our lives in this album. But every band should have that in a debut record.”

The Golden Age Of Not Even Trying was recorded with producer Charlie Russell at Dean Street Studios in Soho, London and is the proud product of four fiercely focused people in their late teens and early twenties. With the announcement, the band have also released a music video for their next single and the title track from the album.

Regarding the video, the band had the following to say: “We all live in The Golden Age of Not Even Trying whether we like it or not. That means many different things to different people and we used that in the creation of the video. Parts of it are of us performing and parts of it are everyday life that we take for granted. We never stop to realise that all the decisions we choose to either take or neglect have an impact on the bigger picture of us as a society.”

With a fire in their belly that has seen them tour, without frills, almost non-stop over the past eighteen months, move into a house in London together, release their own music, make and produce their own videos, and design and print their own merchandise, Dead! are without doubt one of the UK’s most exciting new bands.

Dead! are vocalist Alex Mountford, guitarists Sam and Louis Matlock and bass player Sam Chappell.
