Dead in 5’s sound evokes Clutch, and Soundgarden. Original melodic hard rock– fueled by Detroit muscle! Think “Sons of Anarchy” Meets “Fight Club.” It’s dirty outlaw rock that will make you raise your fists in salute to the musical juggernaut that is Dead in 5!
Dead in 5 were born from the ashes of acclaimed Detroit hard rock bands 60 Second Crush and Mansfield Park. Together less than a year - this fierce 5 piece released their debut self titled CD in May, 2013. The band’s first single “Pressure Head” won The Banana Radio (Flint, Michigan’s commercial rock radio station) “Flint Town Throw Down” battle by a landslide, and is currently enjoying airplay.
Since their debut show at one of Detroit’s most notorious Motorcycle Clubhouses in January 2013, Dead in 5 has proven themselves a buzz-worthy live act headlining Metro Detroit’s top venues, in addition to direct support slots for national acts Sponge and Blacklist Union.
Catch Dead in 5 live this summer at the Uncle Sam Jam (Woodhaven, Michigan) as direct support for Candlebox and Skidrow, and at Dirt Fest with Trapt, Asking Alexandria and Pop Evil in Flint, Michigan.
Dead in 5 is currently writing and recording songs for “Pro-Wrestlers Vs. Zombies” (Troma Films) starring WWE wrestling stars Roddy Piper, Matt Hardy, Jim Dugan, Kurt Angle and Shane Douglas.
Blogger James Frederick Leach raves about Dead in 5: How did I love DI5? Let me count the ways: The band members are each strongly charismatic and compelling on stage, from the bald guitar-technician who settled in and wailed on his Gibson, to the towering mountain of a lead singer with the commanding voice, the corseted bass player with a sweet smile and a caustic sneer, the kilted drummer and the rhythm guitarist who I believe used a beer bottle as a slide at one point. They are a powerful group clearly having a blast on stage and not afraid to give a great show. Damn, the smoke machine made me a nostalgia-monkey for the days when a night at the Blind Pig meant my clothes would smell like an ashtray for a month. It’s quite a compliment that Dead in 5 could make a man as old as dirt feel like a kid again.
