*The Following Press Release Was Issued By The Dead Extras*
“Unearthing Dead Extras is to unearth a gem; you’re unlikely to find another band who does what they do to the same degree of skill- I wouldn’t bother trying.” – Lippy Magazine
“Their reputation as one of the best Leeds has to offer is justly earned” – Roadie Live
“High energy – Commanding Presence – Sheer Intensity” – When the Horn Blows
“This thing is fucking fantastic, it has guitars to die for, vocals that are sometimes rock and out there, sometimes surprisingly melodic. It has all sorts of subtle touches that surprise in a really good way” – Local Sound & Focus, single review of ‘Second Rate Sinner’
‘Losing Streak’, the new single from Dead Extras, has arrived. A cacophonous choir of howling vocals, carried on the back of breakbeat drums, furious riffs and bottomless bass, ‘Losing Streak’ is a sonic assault on the senses by the Leeds based hybrid punk metal miscreants.
Losing Streak is the second single to be released from Dead Extras’ new EP ‘No End In Sight,’ due for release in early 2020. ‘No End In Sight’ was recorded at Chairworks Studios in Castleford with esteemed producer Bob Cooper (Nai Harvest, Cult Dreams, Nervus, Self Defense Family).
The video for ‘Losing Streak’ was shot by venerable cinematographer Shaun Hodson (Volbeat, Fozzy, Sleep Token, Thy Art Is Murder) at Freedom Mills in Leeds. Surrounded by blindfolded cult members, hundreds of candles and wearing horrific make-up, it’s unlikely you’ve ever seen anything like this before.
The band considered this to be a standard Saturday.
Since forming in 2017, Dead Extras have played shows with Life Of Agony, Doyle, Teenage Bottlerocket, Puppy, Lightyear, Ducking Punches, developing a reputation for commanding performances with dramatic flair. Their new EP marks a change in direction towards even more chaotic and intense songs, moving at a breakneck pace without compromising the blistering complexity the band is known for.
Dead Extras are:
James Rodgers – Bass, vocals
Liam Swanson – Guitar, vocals
Joe Synnott – Drums, vocals
Matthew Wilson – Guitar, vocals
