Deand Man, Trophy Wives, Radio Moscow @ Skull Alley 2/12


Fast-rising Swedish rockers DEAD MAN are making a stop at Skull Alley on Thursday, Feb 12th halfway through their first full US tour alongside the blues-rock influenced RADIO MOSCOW from Iowa, and local all-stars TROPHY WIVES. Doors for this rompus night of rock n roll open at 7pm, with a $7.00 cover.

DEAD MAN, whose members possess a wealth of musical experience derived from time spent in various Swedish acts (including the hard rock band NORRSKEN, which also featured in its ranks current WITCHCRAFT front man Magnus Pelander and GRAVEYARD members Joakim Nilsson and Rikard Edlund), play magnetic, spirited rock with melancholic undertones and a slight touch of darkness (calling for comparisons to Jefferson Airplane, Blue Cheer, Dungen and Dead Meadow). Each member of the quartet is a multi-instrumentalist, which allows the band to build unique, lush atmospheres replete with both acoustic tinge and electric crunch.

Recorded at the famous Svenska Grammofon Studion (The Hives) and released via Sweden’s Crusher Records, Euphoria is an album that bridges both the soulful and the psychedelic as dynamic yet incisive songwriting effortlessly fuses with shivering vocals and an expansive, emotive tenor. The record is thick with analog warmth and a laid back, confident overall feel, connecting the dots where the adventurous folk-rock of the late 60s overlapped with metals prehistoric commingling with blues-rock and prog in the early 70s.
