Dead Confederate - download “The Rat” MP3 + tour dates

Dead Confederate

There’s a new breed of dark, raw, mind-blowing psych-rock crawling from the South, and its name is Dead Confederate.

The Georgia group conjured the haunting sound of their debut full-length album ‘Wrecking Ball’ the old-fashioned way: by making it in the tiny concrete box of a studio in Austin, Texas, where the sound effects for The Texas Chainsaw Massacre were recorded.

“We’re kind of like a Jackson Pollock painting,” explains singer/guitarist Hardy Morris, 28. “Brutally honest. There isn’t some big twist or turn, it just lays it all out there. Immediate, no frills, primal, emotional.”

Following the success of their self-titled EP, Dead Confederate is back with their debut LP.

‘Wrecking Ball’ is out September 16, 2008 via TAO Records.


“Dead Confederate’s wall of sound feels cinematic and atmospheric, loud and beautiful” -

“Although southern Civil War soldiers may remain six feet under, Dead Confederate’s sincere versatility drives home rock ‘n roll that is damn well alive and kicking.” -

“Known for its notoriously insane live show, this dramatic band forges a distinctive style…” - Paste

“Dead Confederate’s live shows are sonic explosions taut with emotion.” - Harp

They’ve already shared the stage with R.E.M. (at a lauded 2008 SXSW appearance), Dinosaur Jr., Drive By Truckers, the Black Angels, Deerhunter and Black Lips and are looking forward to tossing aside their day jobs (everything from catering to construction) to get back into their live groove this summer. This is a show not to be missed!!
