Feeling a bit camera shy


"Tighter than a Newfoundland duck's ass..."
Darrin Keene,

Dead Red - rock and roll based out of Halifax, Nova Scotia. Their aggressive sound was forged in the drunken fury of early sessions in a small shed in Newfoundland, where they melded their love of melody with the turbulent force of rock and roll. Quickly outgrowing the confines of that shed, they decided to immigrate to the more promising shores of Nova Scotia. After joining the ranks of the working poor and surviving the flight of two disillusioned drummers, they settled into Peter MacMillan on drums/vocals, Francis Hall on vocals/bass, and Fabian O'Brien on guitar/vocals/yelling.

Winning the Dalhousie University "Battle of the Bands" helped blast Dead Red into the ranks of many of the regions top underground rock acts including Bucket Truck and King Konqueror. A move which very quickly led to tours with No Means No, Groovie Ghoulies, Gob, Cheerleader and Chixdiggit. They've taken part in the Halifax Pop Explosion two years running as well as showcased at the East Coast Music Awards and Canadian Music Week in the last year.

Their debut album, Static, is in stores now and distributed through Tidemark.

"Static is as strong a punk rock record that has ever come out of the east coast."
Jay Dimmer, Reverb, August 2001

Currently getting “all their ducks in a row”, the band is servicing college radio and building their adds weekly, working with booking agents to match the group with similar touring artists and fine -tuning the stage show for a full on assault/tour that will tie into a video release for the band’s single Leaves in Fall.

2003 will be a busy and exciting year for Dead Red. No longer will they just be Atlantic Canada’s best kept secret.
