Biography

London, United Kingdom (2000 – 2005)

Million Dead were a London-based punk band that formed back in late 2000 through out of work associations, mutual friends and in the case of vocalist Frank Turner and drummer Ben Dawson from their previous band Kneejerk and ended after a farewell UK tour in September 2005.

The combination of original guitarist Cameron Dean’s diverse and intricate guitar riffs along with the powerhouse combination of Julia Ruzicka’s bass lines were the perfect backdrop to Turner’s often upfront and outspoken views on UK politics and society as a whole.

They released two full length records, firstly ‘A Song To Ruin’ in 2003 to critical acclaim. The band went into a brief hiatus after losing Dean on guitar to be replaced by friend of the band Tom Fowler who at the time was also playing twin-bass punk monoliths Palehorse with drummer Ben Dawson. After two years from the first album the band returned with what was their second and final LP ‘Harmony No Harmony’ in 2005.

The second album did not garner as much acclaim from the public as before, perhaps because of changing tastes and perhaps due to the change in sound that the band had taken. It was still Million Dead but to some it was different. If asked about the drop in show sizes and attention any member of the band would tell you it galvanised them into accepting and relishing the prospect of being a working punk band once more, without the hype and expectations of success that had been lavished on them before (and which they themselves had fallen prey to believing).
