Unpopularity Contest is out now
+ New Collaboration featuring Jem from DEAD / Vern from Prizehog
Completists may rest easy for the fourth and final Volume of The Trilogy is upon us. 180 grams of glory, previously available on tour only and now available for all and sundry. The fourth and final chapter features the band in collaboration with Vern Avola aka EMS – underground synth wizard from Portland, Oregon.
EMS is a sometimes touring partner of DEAD and the band consider her to be an exceptionally talented and inspiring individual. One single piece takes up an entire side of Vinyl in what might be described as the soundtrack to a slow, brooding nightmare. As with “We Won’t Let you Sleep” this record was made with Toshi Kasai at Sound of Sirens.
Melbourne cult power trio Wicked City take care of side two with three explosive punk rock bangers. DEAD have admired Wicked City’s unique and uncompromising contribution to progressive punk rock for many years and working with them on this is no small honour.

EMS + Jem (DEAD) in Collaboartion on "Back at Home"
And my oh my what poignant timing that …
The EMS + Jem Cassette "Back At Home" is out next week!
On this recording Jem steps away from the drumkit and up to a 44 Gallon drum armed with a hammer, mallets and a piece of fence piping we stole from a worksite.
Also DEAD will go to Europe in September. More on that later.
And also who else has released 4 LPs in less than 12 months? Congratulations to us!
Thanks for listening.
