Dead Meadow met in the DC punk/indie scene, though their music draws from more faraway sources. The band formed in the fall of 1998 from the ashes of local bands The Impossible Five and Colour, when singer-guitarist Jason Simon, bassist Steve Kille, and drummer Mark Laughlin set out to fuse their love of early 70's hard rock and 60’s psychedelia with their love of writers J.R.R. Tolkien and H.P. Lovecraft.
Darlings of both the stoner rock and modern psychedelia worlds (and featured in the new movie on heavy rock named after one of their tracks, "Such Hawks, Such Hounds"), DEAD MEADOW transcend both. Over the last ten years, they reacted to their home country's swelling conservatism with a particularly escapist, surreal, lovely, and deafening sound of their own, and an exponentially growing audience tuning in.
