It’s been a big month for The Dead South, a four-piece bluegrass band from Regina, SK! The group’s upcoming London, UK show just sold out (2,300 tickets), as have multiple other UK and European dates. Their video for “In Hell I’ll Be In Good Company” crossed the 100 million view mark on YouTube. The band just returned home from Muscle Shoals, Alabama, with a new album in hand. This record, their third full-length and first since 2016, will be released by their new label, highly-regarded Toronto independent Six Shooter Records.
“The Dead South is a family. We find it very important to surround ourselves with people we enjoy, people who believe in us and people who will fight for us. Also, people who like to get shit done. Thankfully, these are all things Six Shooter provides. We would like to welcome them into our family.”
2019 is shaping up to be a year of even bigger milestones. The band is confirmed to join Trampled By Turtles and Deer Tick at Red Rocks on July 24, 2019. There are already nearly 20,000 tickets sold for 2019 UK and EU tour dates. The Dead South’s forthcoming album, expected this fall, is their first recorded outside their hometown.
Colton Crawford declares:
“We just got home from recording our most bangin’ album yet. Before we even get our feet warm we’ll be out the door and on our way to the UK to show you all what we’ve been up to.”
Hi there! My name is Marie, I am French born and raised, and moved to Montreal about 5 years ago. I am an account manager at a digital marketing agency by day, and an avid concert-goer by night. I have always had a passion for photography, and realized that this mixes quite well with my love for live music (the absolute best way to experience music, if you ask me).
