The Deadset are a Vancouver-based indie pop punk band featuring JT Criminal, Steven Appleyard and Tommy Phoenix. You may have heard some of these names before, JT was in a former band called “Ready Set Die” and Tommy Pheonix is in the band, Fighting for Ithaca.
The band formed in the summer of 2012, and they are ready to bring their energetic brand of indie-fused punk to the masses.
Their EP “The Deadset” is available to download HERE:
The EP has five songs and each of them are full of energy and keep you intrigued. The EP opens with “Lost” and it really starts the EP off on a high note, I would have to say this song is the one that has the most energy and a perfect start to the EP. If people hear this song, they will definately continue to listen!
Next is “Forever and Always” which is slighly less energetic but still has the a bit of an upbeat sound. JT Criminal’s voice is more showcased in this song, which I like.
The third song “Love Love” is my favorite from the EP, probably because it’s more “pop” sounding than the others. Once again, this song shows JT’s vocal range and the lyrics are very well written. I could sit here and listen to this song all day, and not get sick of it. Great song!
Don’t Go is the fourth song on the album, and once again doesn’t dissapoint. If you are a fan of pop punk, this EP will be your best friend. You won’t want to put it down.
The final song is called “New Anthem” and the band finishes off just as strong as they started with extreme energy. This song gets you really riled up and makes y ou want to sing along!
In my opinion, The Deadset placed the songs in the perfect order and did a great job constructing their EP, and I for one, can’t wait to hear more from the band.
