“It‘s louder and harder than you‘ll ever want it.” ~ Dead Lucky (press release via Plug Music)
South Africa’s Rock n’ Roll heavies are releasing internationally! Dead Lucky‘s debut album will be available in Europe via Dr. Music Records from 13 March 2015. The album, Sons Of Lazarus, was produced by Brendyn Rossouw and Theo Crous (< strong>K.O.B.U.S, Prime Circle, Parlotones, Karen Zoid, …) at Heritage Sound and Bellville Studios, the album then made its journey to Los Angeles where it was mastered by Reuben Cohen at Lurssen Mastering (Rob Zombie, Incubus, Bruno Mars, …). The European release will take form as a digipack along with a poster booklet.
The press release sums up the band shortly and aptly:
“Founded in 2011, Kyle Lucky (Vocals), Jean Labuschagne (Drums), Chris Thunder (Bass) as well as Chris Bornmann and Alex Krause (both Guitar) set their sights on sending the fans of dirty rough Rock on a musical safari, with their rampant enjoyment of playing and mangy variety, during which you can fully live up the Rock ‘n‘ Roll lifestyle. Within their still young band history Dead Lucky already have a whole lot of impressing performances at the most famous South African festivals to show. Here they fired up for bands like Bring Me The Horizon, Rise Against, Wolfmother, Rival Sons, Trivium as well as Killswitch Engage at the Synergy Live, RAMfest or the legendary Oppikoppi and hit the road with Billy Talent as their tour support. Now the rebellious guys from Cape Town focus their eyes on the North to look beyond the African horizon and send their striking sound on the journey to Europe.” ~ Plug Music
To whet some appetites before band’s next tour cycle begins, they have released a rough new video for the track ‘Live Fast, Die Last’ this weekend, featuring a lot of road footage and typical Rock n’ Roll fun times. You can also check out part one and part two of their studio diaries.
