Shoot the Dead - Pioneers of "Soul Metal"
Rising up organically through impromptu gigs in Brighton's thriving free party scene in 2009, four piece band Shoot the Dead create the kind of dance infused rock music that delivers both style and substance.
With their unique combination of frenetic rhythms, driving bass, searing guitar riffs and Andi’s phenomenal vocals, they have produced a collection of sample and hook laden tunes, citing collective primary influences as diverse as the Beatles through to the Prodigy and Hendrix through to Orbital.
The band take their name from a line borrowed from horror maestro George Romero. "There's all these zombies coming out, covered in blood and someone shouts "shoot the dead" explains the band, who have equally embraced with relish their initials STD, referring to their fans as simply “carriers”
Ironically, with all this talk of zombies, Shoot the Dead are very much a live band delivering mesmerizing performances set against a backdrop of thought provoking visuals and eclectic songs that range from the sleazy title defying “Lullaby" through to the more aggressive and hi octane tunes such as “Weapon of Hate” and “Kill Machine Kill”.
2010 is going to be a huge year for Shoot the Dead. With a studio session already under their belt and a bulging gig diary, the “carriers” want a debut single and the band are keen to deliver!
Coming soon to a venue near you, this is one STD you need to catch !!!!!
