EP launch for local band
DEATH by Dance is set to kill.
The Tweed Heads-based indie punk band will release their debut EP album I am the Verse in March.
It’s been an interesting ride for the band which formed two years ago.
Playing local gigs, the trio – Jade Walters on vocals and guitar, Justin Heydon on vocals and bass and Grant Millings on drums – had hoped to be discovered and signed.
However they decided rather than waiting that they would record on the Gold Coast and release the album independently.
“This EP includes some of our favourite tracks written in 2009, plus some fresh-smelling newbies written over the past 12 months,” Mr Millings said.
“Recorded on the Gold Coast by David Hayllar from The City Shake Up/Dr Octopus, this EP was brilliant fun to record and it really reflects on the final product.
“We cannot wait to give everyone a listen.”
The album features six original tracks written by the musically gifted trio.
“We write all of our own songs. We sit in a room together and pay each other out and write,” Mr Millings said.
“Our album shows a range of different genres including rock and indie.
“We hope when people listen to it they will like the sound we have created,” he said.
Death By Dance will launch I am the Verse on a riverboat cruise in Brisbane and the album will be available from March 11.
