Biography

The Dexateens have harnessed a sound that could only have come from the southern United States, while managing to stay miles away from the predictable themes and antics that people have come to expect when they think of "Southern Rock."

The Dexateens began as a primitive, power-chording punk rock trio. Eight years and two member additions later, the band has developed a sound rich with twangy guitar parts and spontaneous, off-kilter vocal harmonies. In one set, the band manages to go from a fiery, chaotic moment about the rural brewing of amphetamines ("Elrod") to a scaled-back, fragile song about the struggles of raising children ("What Money Means").

The Dexateens have just finished recording their fourth full length record, titled "Hardwire Healing". The record was co-produced by Patterson Hood from the Drive By Truckers and David Barbe (who has produced Uncle Tupelo and Son Volt among many others). The record was partially recorded by Mark Nevers at his Beech house studios in Nashville Tn.(where he has worked with Will Oldahm, Silver Jews, Lambchop, and Vic Chesnut) and the remainder was cut in Athens Ga. with Hood and Barbe at Chase Park Transduction Studios. The record makes no concessions to the fashion brigade hipsters, instead sharing experiences and expressing emotions that anyone can relate to. The record is due out in September on Skybucket records.
