Death Western traces its steps through a journey spanning generations and continents that culminates in New York City at the break of the millennium. The result is a group of musicians who reap inspiration from the soils of Spain, Poland, the Philippines, Italy, Newark, and Queens. This passionate set of malcontents derives their musical palette from an eclectic array of rock, blues, and American and Western European folk music. The long list of musical influences includes Nirvana, At the Drive-In, The Ramones, Muddy Waters, Camaron de la Isla, Dylan, Tool, Ska-P and others.

Death Western began as the brainchild of songwriters Chris Gonzales and Sergio Dominguez. The lyrical duo met while attending college on the east coast of the United States. From a simple desire to play for whomever would listen, an obsession emerged. Dissonant melodies, driving rhythms and antagonistic lyrics soon locked them in dark rooms feverishly writing through the night.

To help realize their vision Gonzales and Dominguez enlisted another college friend, Tom Witek, to join on bass. With a new set of smooth, steady, and skillful bass riffs in tow, they turned to the last empty seat. Enter Larry Brown on drums. Brown, a former service industry coworker of Gonzales and New York rock scene veteran, took his place on the drum throne and completed the equation. Armed with an arsenal of indisputable experience, pure raw talent, and refreshingly unpopular social perspectives Death Western began tearing through New York City’s boroughs with a ferocity only post-punk pre-revolution could foster. They call it – prevolution.
