Biography

Hailing from the working-class streets of the south side of Chicago, Dead Town Revival is a self-described 'punk-n-roll' band with a wide ranging list of influences from punk staples such as The Misfits and Social Distortion to rock legends Led Zeppelin and country hero Johnny Cash.

Dead Town Revival's driving melodic music speaks of love lost, hard luck and a complete disdain for authority. Inspired by angst, guns, and rock and roll, the Dead Town Revival release, 'Hasta La Muerte,' or 'to the death' in English, equates to "a punch in the face for the person who enjoys pain." The album, newly-released in 2007, was recorded and produced by well-known rock producer, Andy Gerber, at his Million Yen Studios (Local H, Smoking Popes, Cheap Trick, and The Tossers) in Chicago. Dead Town Revival will support the forthcoming album with extensive touring in the Midwest and East coast throughout 2008.

Formed from the ashes of several Chicago bands, Dead Town Revival's musical influences have created a unique sound that stays rooted in the undeniable 'Chicago punk sound' along the lines of Naked Raygun, Rise Against, Pegboy, and Alkaline Trio.
