Biography

Athens, Georgia, United States (2006 – present)

Dead Confederate is an alternative rock band which formed in Athens, Georgia, United States in 2006. The band consists of Hardy Morris (vocals, guitars), Walker Howle (guitar), John Watkins (keyboards), Brantley Senn (bass) and Jason Scarboro (drums). The band released their debut album, “Wrecking Ball” on September 16, 2008 on Razor & Tie and The Artists Organization. The album includes the single “The Rat”.

Though the band is pinned as producing the same kind of indie rock aesthetic à la My Morning Jacket and Band of Horses, Dead Confederate dabbles in darker shades than their compared predecessors. From the raspy, unrestrained shrieks of “The Rat” and the psychedelic guitar wail on the vivid “Tortured Artist Saint” to the intimate acoustic layers of “Memorial Day Night,” Dead Conferdate echo the Drive-By Truckers’ bittersweet southern rock angst with the smoke-heavy swagger of the Black Angels. Although southern Civil War soldiers may remain six feet under, Dead Confederate’s sincere versatility drives home that rock’n’roll is damn well alive and kicking.
