DEAD TO ME (Fat Wreck Chords, USA)
It is our distinct pleasure to bring San Francisco's finest anthemic melodic punk rockers Dead To Me to Dundee for their first ever Scottish headline show and their only date north of the border on their 2012 European Tour. Last seen in these parts supporting the Street Dogs over three years ago, Dead To Me have continued to tour relentlessly and have crafted some of modern punk rock's most beloved records and, despite numerous line-up changes, have gone onto become one of the most popular underground punk bands in the world.
Their latest record "Moscow Penny Ante" dropped in October on Fat Wreck Chords and continues the traditional Dead To Me evolutionary curve. From midwestern punk rock, reggae, blues to old school hip-hop, history and a fine line in punk rock bangers, Dead To Me are a truly special band that will make you think and rock your head clean off your body. To have them in Dundee is almost unbelievable and this promises to be a very special occasion indeed.
THE HUMAN PROJECT (ENG)
Touring with Dead To Me, The Human Project are part of the new school super-tech, super-speedy skate-core movement, like a modern take on 90s Epitaph/Fat Wreck skate-punk. These troops come from Leeds and play full-blast, high-octane melodic punk not a million miles away from the likes of Strung Out/Propagandhi/Strike Anywhere. Perfect for a circle pit.
Fast and grumpy yet bleakly uplifting moody melodic punk rock from a bunch of cowpunks who are clearly old enough to know better but who still feel like chancing their arm. Have played shows with some cool bands so far and managed to blag a show at Pre-Fest in Gainesville, Florida. Think Banner Pilot/Bouncing Souls/OWTH and your not exactly close but getting there.
Youthful energetic gobby melodic ska/punk/reggae mash-up from four excitable young chaps from Carnoustie. Still disgustingly young yet almost veterans of this ska-punk malarky, Maxwell's Dead may well crack some bad jokes but they'll also get you skanking like the first time you got drunk and listened to Rancid.
