Good Day Noir Family,
Call In Dead are back with a new powerful single and I want to share my opinion about it.
Are you ready for a sonoric slap that has the ability to awaken you from the torpor of your useless existence?
Press play and turn the volume to max and raise your middle finger towards the neighbor who is complaining about the noise.
This music must break your ears, it’s a powerful and epic experience … it’s like drinking a bottle of whiskey in one go.
Call In Dead are like this… they want everything and they want it now. Direct, primordial, and irreverent emotions…no room for filters. This sound is therapeutic and it is real and sincere and does not follow rules of any kind.
Pure instinct that awakens your real self … this music makes you take off your mask and for 1 minute you can look in the mirror and finally see yourself for who you really are.
Patriarchy is Call In Dead’s single out now!
The band is made up of four veteran punk rockers, one from DC, one from NJ and the others two from FL. With the oldest at 47 and the youngest at 31, they bring their different music experiences and styles together to make a sound that should be familiar to fans of hardcore punk while also giving it the uniqueness that comes from blending their past together into the present.
Fitting on shows with pop punk bands, old school hardcore bands, psychobilly bands and metal bands is just one example of how it’s been difficult to pin down the answer to the perennial question: What band do you sound like? Three years into playing shows they have released an EP, a set of digital singles, a live 7” and a forthcoming full length vinyl is on the way. The band’s first tour was cancelled due to Covid, but they’ve used that time to put on various live streams, start a record label, raise money for mental health and for the LGBTQ Center of Central Florida, plus get voted Best Punk Band in Orlando by Orlando Weekly readers!
In the nascent stages of the band we were still searching for a guitarist to replace Chris who had moved far enough away that he briefly quit the previous incarnation of the band. One brief potential guitarist had texted that we should all go to a Darkest Hour show, but like the aging punks we are, we all said we had work in the morning. He responded to “Call in Dead”. Since we have all spent time in jobs where we have felt like we’d rather be dead than go to work, we thought it was a perfect name.
The first full length, Deepest Condolences, is being released by Wrecking Crew Records and will out in the fall. In the meantime, they have switched singers and replaced Jaeh with Ripley and are stoked to record more songs and to play live and let people hear how dope the band sounds now with a female vocalist.
Call in Dead has shared the stage with national touring acts Iron Reagan, Doyle, The Virus, The Casualties, Bloodlet, The Gutter Demons, and more. Shows with Field Day and Pro-Pain were cancelled due to Covid. As shows returned in 2022 they played with Black Tusk, Year of the Fist, and Koffin Kats. They are going on tour this summer!
