The Dead C announce new 2xLP Trouble and US tour

Legendary lo-fi art-rock trio The Dead C will be releasing their new double album, Trouble, on August 12. Trouble is the follow-up to 2013’s EUREKA!-designated Armed Courage and was recorded at music venue Chick’s Hotel in the band’s native New Zealand, with a two person-audience that included the bartender.

Previous albums like Harsh 70s Reality and Trapdoor Fucking Exit, which date back more than 25 years, are paradigms of experimental, technically wonky rock. The Dead C abandon conventional song structure in favor of epic length, relentless guitar feedback, waves of fuzz, and disturbingly inhuman moaning. Their droning, crumbling soundscapes and long improvisational pieces turn each new album into a dark, engrossing experience.

Trouble is no different: meticulously crafted but dirty as hell. Fans will welcome this latest installment of relentless, pounding, mind-bending music, while newcomers will stretch their conception of what rock can be.

Trouble will be released on Ba Da Bing! (The Dead C is the label’s longest running artist), and it’s available now for pre-order. To satisfy your noise-rock hankerings until August, TMT has the pleasure of premiering a new song from the album, titled “5,” followed by dates for the group’s newly announced tour.
