Deadhorse is a post-rock band from Erie, PA. Starting in the fall of 2009, the original intent of Deadhorse was to be a transition from Brian Morgante's solo music into full band. After doing a few shows with the full band material, the band started writing new material as a four piece: Brian Morgante on guitar, Rachel Shesman on piano, Josh Travis on bass, and Craig Sucharski on Drums. Through the refining process, the band took steps in a new direction and decided to switch things up entirely, going with a full instrumental sound. Josh Travis disbanded from the group, and Tyler Long, who also played with Brian in Awaken, North Wind! joined and started writing the new material. Many second guitar players have cycled through since the beginning of Deadhorse, including Tyler James from Radio Empire, Nick Bufalino from Precinct Aflame, Dan Van Matre from Aevory Nash, and Ryan Zimmerman. Jess Scutella from Radio Empire has also played shows as auxillary percussion with Deadhorse.
The band released their first full length album on June 18, 2010 entitled "We Can Create Our Own World". It was recorded, mixed and mastered by Mark Graziano and Eric Buman of Take 2 Productions in Erie, PA. They worked on the album from December 2009 to June 2010, and the final product was 7 songs, 51 minutes of music, and a complete hand made album available in short run limited edition hand numbered pressings of 50 each. They are releasing the vinyl version of the album through Broken Circles Records out of Cincinnati in Fall/Winter of 2010.
With 3 full east coast/midwest tours already under their belts, Deadhorse shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon, and will continue to move forward with their epic take on post-rock.
The band finally has a solid line-up again feat. Brian Morgante on Guitars, Rachel Shesman on Piano, Seth Young on guitars, Michael Messenger on bass, and Garrett Janos on drums.
NOTE confusingly there is a new band using similar name deadhorse_ab from 2011 with self titled album released in Jan 2011
