Carter Family meets Addams Family in Easy Listening for Jerks, two new covers EPs by gold-certified prairie pickers The Dead South.

Black Deer Festival, Europe’s premier Americana playground, has revealed further festival favourites as part of its ‘three years in the making’ 2022 comeback line-up. The UK’s ‘Best New Festival’ takes place in the wild and spectacular surroundings of the oldest deer park in England, and will welcome Van Morrison, Wilco (Uk Exclusive), The Waterboys, Foy Vance, Drive-By Truckers, The Dead South and many more to its stages next summer.

The Dead South’s Served Cold tour picks up where it left off with newly announced shows in the USA. Served Cold fall openers include Chance McCoy of Old Crow Medicine Show, Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band, The Ghost of Paul Revere and Six Shooter Records labelmates Elliott BROOD.

Tangy banjo and back chop beats drive “Blue Trash,” the third song from The Dead South’s forthcoming Sugar & Joy. Out today, “Blue Trash” is a playful acknowledgement that along their road from unsigned Canadian string set to Gold Certified, JUNO Award winning, Billboard charting band, some have taken issue with the prairie pickers’ progressive style.

Following on from their heavily praised 2016 sophomore album ‘Illusion & Doubt’, and their breakthrough hit ‘In Hell I’ll Be In Good Company’, which has so far smashed through the 100million views barrier on Youtube, Canadian bluegrass heroes The Dead South now return to showcase their highly anticipated third album ‘Sugar & Joy’ with their latest single ‘Diamond Ring’.

Canadian bluegrass band The Dead South are set to bring their foot-stomping music to Western Canada on an 18-date fall tour in support of their upcoming album Illusion and Doubt (Curve Music / Entertainment One), set to be released November 18, 2016. The tour will kick off on November 23 at Tracks Pub in Olds, AB and wrap on December 16 at The Exchange in their hometown of Regina, SK. For ticket information visit: www.thedeadsouth.com.

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.
