Biography

Dead Alphabet is a gritty garage rock band whose massive sound is just getting bigger and better with every step. Their latest release, The Kill (2010) moves effortlessly between songs that trace the eclectic strokes of various musical styles and textures. From the hard rock fury and thundering guitar riffs of Eastern Glow to the dark calm and cattle prodding Western textures of The Kill, the gospel choir chanting and rhythmical sledge-hammering of High on Fire to the garage rock rioting of Eat you Alive this release demands to be listened to, over and over again.

This EP is a statement of intent, an insight into what the band are capable of achieving in the studio. Each song has been carefully crafted under the guidance of producer, Matthew Klawansky, who had this to say about the production process: “A lot of work went into experimenting with the layering of percussion instruments and vocal harmonies. During recording we could relax, have fun and experiment because of the large amount of work that went into streamlining the songs before we hit the production stages.”

Dead Alphabet are from Joburg and its members have been playing together in various bands for a number of years. This has developed a group of musicians who are completely in tune with each other creatively and musically. Dead Alphabet has proved its live energy countless times over the last two years - with the energetic opening of OPPIKOPPI 2009, support shows alongside European bands Voicst and Balthazar as well as playing alongside fellow South African groups such as The Shadow Club, Zebra and Giraffe and Fokofpolisiekar.
