Regina, Saskatchewan alt-country outlaws The Dead South will officially release their full-length debut album, Good Company, this past February through Curve Music/Entertainment One.
The quartet -- sometimes described as Mumford & Sons' evil twins -- have been consistently taking their unique live show across North America and Europe for the past year and are eager to keep up that schedule in 2016, starting with appearances at Folk Alliance in Kansas City this month and South By South West in Austin next month.
Last fall, The Dead South made a splash in Toronto by performing on a flatbed truck at various downtown locations, including Yonge-Dundas Square. The appearance marked the release of their latest video for the track "Honey You," which has been in regular rotation on CMT Canada.
Co-produced by Orion Paradis (Rah Rah, Library Voices), Good Company includes songs about timeless subjects such as lovin’, cheatin’, killin’ and drinkin’.
It all adds up to what makes The Dead South — Nate Hills (lead vocals, guitar, mandolin), Scott Pringle (guitar, mandolin, vocals), Colton Crawford (banjo, kick drum) and Danny Kenyon (cello, vocals) — the modern hillbillies they are, a band that can make you forget your troubles and even what century you’re in.
