Download – Dead Confederate – “It Was A Rose“
Hailing from Athens, Georgia, Dead Confederate’s music is best described as intense, lumbering, southern, psychedelic grizzly rock. They burst onto the scene with their self titled EP soon followed by an opening spot for R.E.M. at SXSW in early 2008. Later that year, they released their debut full length album, WRECKING BALL, to innumerable raves from tastemakers and press alike. Rolling Stone selected Dead Confederate as a “Band to Watch” and they made their U.S. television debut on NBC’s “Late Night With Conan O’Brien” with their first single “The Rat.”
Dead Confederate toured the U.S. this past March with fellow Georgians, The Whigs and in April with legendary rockers Dinosaur Jr. The band also stopped in Austin, TX for a number of SXSW shows. They have spent the last few months touring with various bands such as Drive By Truckers, Manchester Orchestra, Yeasayer, the Black Angels, Deerhunter and Black Lips among others and also played U.S. festivals such as Bonnaroo and Sasquatch. WRECKING BALL, was produced by Mike McCarthy (Spoon, Trail of Dead) and was released on TAO/Razor and Tie Entertainment.
