The Dead South

The 4-piece just played live on the infamous Grand Ole Opry in Nashville to mark the launch of their album. The group is heading to Australia as a part of their massive international tour, Chains & Snakes, which will cover North America, Australia, and Europe throughout 2024.

The 2024 International tour is to promote their new album Chains & Snakes.  One of the tracks from the new album Completely, Sweetly, an instant fan favourite from the new album, The Dead South fold a banjo riff until it transforms into doom metal, like Metallica served up string band style. The grudge-powered song, an album highlight, reaches deep into the highs and lows that come with moving beyond betrayal.

Yours To Keep, the source of the album title, arrives with a video that finds the band in an alternate dimension with mystery potions and dancing demagogues, like The Grand Budapest Hotel but set in Saskatchewan. Yours To Keep was directed by Two Brothers, the team behind videos for In Hell I’ll Be In Good Company, You Are My Sunshine and Diamond Ring, from the band’s impressive catalogue.

About The Dead South

The Dead South have never been about constant reinvention, but about full commitment to their own singular way. With confidence in their sound and style and trust in each other, The Dead South arrive at the cusp of explosive global success in an enviable, and well-earned, position: total autonomy. It doesn’t really matter what you call their music – progressive bluegrass, alternative Americana, country, folk and western, what matters is that this is theirs, and people from all different backgrounds, beliefs, experiences, languages and ages love it.

True blue right through, The Dead South don’t shy away from ruffling traditionalists’ feathers from time to time, as they flawlessly execute banjo rolls and lightning fast mandolin tremolos, 3-part harmonies and songs of classic themes -murder ballads, disloyalty, ghosts and the like, all with a wink and a smile. As they continue their climb to the top, The Dead South have learned an important lesson: If you’re going to be outsiders, you’d better be great.

Confirmed by the passion of their Dead South cosplaying fans, who go to concerts in the band’s signature look, this four-piece acoustic set from the middle of the Canadian prairies have found their people. Good Company, as they call themselves, is a global community of vastly dissimilar folks who might not see eye to eye, but who stand shoulder to shoulder at the gigs.

Black and white, but now with more platinum, The Dead South celebrate the RIAA Platinum Certification for In Hell I’ll Be In Good Company in the USA.
