DEAD IN 5.  Motor City rock still has its hard and honed edge that was pioneered by the likes of the MC5, Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels, and Iggy and the Stooges. Born of this powerful legacy are melodic hard rockers Dead in 5. This fierce five-piece performs with a raw energy and hunger that can neither be bought nor faked. You either have “It” or you don’t. And Dead in 5 has “It” in spades.

There’s no corporate sheen marring the honest, and downright dirty rock n’ roll played by Dead in 5. The band grinds out intense musical gems with as much super-charged muscle as a new Mustang rolling off the assembly line. Turn the key, and FLOOR IT! Dead in 5’s music is not just an assertion – it’s an absolute DECLARATION of the POWER of Rock and Roll!

Evoking a sonic mash up of Clutch, Soundgarden, White Zombie and Led Zeppelin, the band’s dirty outlaw rock will make you raise your fists in salute to their musical juggernaut. It’s “Sons of Anarchy” meets “Fight Club” set in the post apocalyptic “Mad Max” environment of Detroit Rock City.
Since their debut show inside one of Detroit’s most notorious biker clubhouses in January 2013, Dead in 5 has become an in-demand live act headlining Metro Detroit’s top venues and festivals, in addition to support slots for national acts Anthrax, Sevendust, Prong, Five Finger Death Punch, Godsmack, Hell Yeah, Butcher Babies, John 5 and more.

In the band’s short time together, Dead in 5 has released 3 discs –including their self-titled debut EP and a full length, “Wreck Your World” in 2013. The latter disc saw 7 of its 11 tracks featured in the cult film “Pro-Wrestlers Vs. Zombies” (Troma Entertainment) starring WWE wrestling legends “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, Matt Hardy, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Kurt Angle and Shane “The Franchsie” Douglas.

Now mixing their newest release “Automatic Death Machine” (release date January 2019) with producer Nick Morris (Black Dahlia Murder) -Dead in 5 is poised to knock down doors and penetrate ears with undeniable Detroit fury.
