DEAD / MoE (Norway) – East Coast+Adelaide Tour

Increased tremblings measured of late by the Seismologists of Eastern Australia are no mistake. There is indeed a significant event approaching:

DEAD and MoE are touring together. It’s the double bill you need n your life. You have been warned.

And yes that is THE MoE from Norway; legendary noise rock/avant garde DIY stalwarts.

Two relentlessly active and uncompromising bands; it’s a pissing contest of low end, high output and DIY cred. Remember that time John Farnham sold out 17 concerts at the Tennis Centre? This will be nothing like that.



We have shows coming up with Ithaqua from Japan, they’re INCREDIBLE!!

Also this show in Bendigo;

Rock Against Racism is a super rad, positive way to counteract the forces which wish to portray the community as racist and bigoted.

This event offers an opportunity to stand up and show support for a community that rejects all forms of racism and fascism.

This event is being held on the land of Dja Dja Wurrung Country.

In addition to the range of awesome bands billed to play, there will be speakers and stalls with info, patches and other good stuff available for purchase.

More bands and details of speakers to be announced soon. Current lineup includes:
Dead (Castlemaine)
Diploid (Melbourne)
Older Men (Melbourne)

Entry: $6


Long overdue update

So I’m not great at doing updates cos I’m usually too busy patting my dog, but there’s been a lot happening at DEAD HQ .

Firstly we recorded a DEAD/BJ Morriszonkle collaborative album with Mike Deslandes engineering. Mike has been great to work with and we’re really stoked with the results.

We toured the US last Aug/Sept, played with some incredible acts including; House Of Lightning, Hepa-Titus, Eat My Shit, Gay Witch Abortion, Vaz, Rabbits, Mr Dad, Lazarus Long, Ben Von Wildenhaus, Big Business, Black Cobra….bloody hell it was good!! We also recorded an album plus a couple of extra tracks with Toshi Kasai in LA.

We have four releases ready to roll out. The first one is a split 12″ with Mark Deutrom. We will announce release details soon.
