DEAD CONFEDERATE

New Music this Week!
Someone You Should Know

Verdict: Run Out & Buy It
Best of 2010 Album nomination


SWEET - I can always say to people I was there when Dead Confederate's fog effects overwhelmed TT the Bears. It actually seemed completely normal that Dead Confederate's ethereal, swampy, haunting music would be accompanied by copious amounts of billows smoke and haze. So, I didn't immediately question it when the light in the room got choked out. It wasn't until I had nearly lost sight of the band (who kept playing throughout) that I realize the malfunction unfolding. And with every alarm in the building went off, the band just kept jamming - louder in fact, to drown out the ringing klaxon. No one wanted to leave - it was better to breathe stage smoke.

Dead Confederate play rock the way it was meant to be experienced. A lot has developed since that memorable show in Cambridge. The band is back this week with a new album and a tour in support. Check out the Making of Sugar video. [Ed's note: totally playing that drinking game!]



Dead Confederate - Run From The Gun
(Band-approved mp3 Download)

BETTER THAN EVER - Sugar (TAO Recordings/Old Flame) was recorded by John Agnello (projects include Dinosaur Jr., Sonic Youth, and The Hold Steady. )I think you'll find Sugar is one of the year's best albums to date. Buy it. And the tour dates below? Cannot believe I'm going to see Dead Confederate with Alberta Cross - that's just wicked!
