The Dead South
The Dead South announce their return to Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, this time for two nights, July 12 and 13, 2024. Tickets will be available to the public on Friday, December 8 at 9am CT. The two shows are an exciting addition to a busy year ahead that will see the band headline major festivals across North America, Australia and Europe, release a new album, make their live debut in Mexico, and more.
“If time heals everything…” The Dead South introduce their fourth studio album with “Tiny Wooden Box,” a song that gets right into it with a big hypothetical. The first single and video from forthcoming Chains & Stakes, out February 9, 2024, shows the four-piece in top form in a rolling, roiling “State Trooper” style finger-picked nail-biter.
Propelled by the momentum of a gold-certified single for “In Hell I’ll Be In Good Company,” two Canadian JUNO Award wins for Traditional Roots Album of the Year and sold out tours worldwide with performances at iconic live destinations including Glastonbury, Brixton Academy, and Red Rocks Amphitheater, the finger-picking four-piece offer a highly nonconformist, hugely entertaining take on the traditional string band sound.
The Dead South preview their forthcoming covers EPs ‘Easy Listening for Jerks’ with their rendition of System Of A Down’s ‘Chop Suey’
The Dead South share a string-laced take on “Will The Circle Be Unbroken,” with banjo and mandolin twined around sparse cello and forlorn baritone vocals. The new cover is found on Easy Listening for Jerks Part 1, half of a forthcoming double EP set that travels from nitty gritty Nashville to west coast weird and back again, putting The Dead South’s renegade acoustic approach to classics of two very different sorts.
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.
