Greatest Hymns - 2010



While The Dead Boys Choir may be new to the Toronto music scene, it's members certainly are not. All 5 members of DBC have a long history of rock music in and around the GTA, and it was those deep rooted connections made long ago that brought the Boys together in this most recent incarnation. Already having "day jobs" took the pressure of making a "hit band" off of the Boys, and allows them to simply write music that speaks to them, and to their audiences. Milo (The Descendents) once sang "what will I be like when I get old?" and DBC answers that question. You'll still pick up your guitar, you'll still rock until you sweat, and you'll still have ringing ears the next morning.
While many bands claim they don't want to be "pigeon holed" into any genre or course of action, for DBC the course is clear, rock music. Sometimes heavy, sometimes fast, and always sweaty, there was no genre ambiguity when these 5 got together to build this band, it was going to rock out, period.
Ask the Boys about their influences and history, and you can see how their sound has been shaped by their past. Social Distortion, Judas Priest, Cro-mags, Drag the River, Decendents, Face2Face, Muddy Waters, Black Sabbath, Black Keys and Black Flag all come up as influences. Basically, Punk and Rock.
The road this far hasn't been the smooth black-top the Boys may have craved, with line-up changes, hiatuses, and the conflicts of day jobs and family life, the Boys have had to learn the lesson of perseverance the hard way. That perseverance has laid the foundation for the honest music they play today. The DBC have no illusions of grandeur, you won't be hearing them on the radio, and you probably won't see them driving the latest Mercedes to the next Grammy's. But if you see a beaten up van full of gear, with 5 guys spinning wrenches trying to get to the next gig, chances are it's The Dead Boys Choir. We're taking rock 'n' roll back to where it was meant to be, in your face.
