D E A D P O S E Y - H O L Y G R A I L [Official Video]
with it's debut "freak show" EP, los angeles alt-rockers dead posey have delivered a raucous, fuzz-loaded collection of back-to-basics rock 'n' roll with a distinctly modern flavor. Singer Danielle Souza’s gritty vocals blend seamlessly with guitarist Kyle Foster’s muddy, blown-out riffs in this vibrant, boot-stomping five-song collection. FINDING a home in numerous tv & video game placements, SONGS LIKE the anthemic, charging “Don’t Stop the Devil” AND the soulful swamp rock of “Boogeyman,” NEVER let up.
The band spent most of 2016 working on Freak Show and credits producer/co-writer ALLIES (Tony fagenson of Eve 6) with helping guide their vision and develop their sound. The EP's tuneful bangers started from bare-bones vocals-and-guitar demos that the band and tony would hatch together. “after the demo phase, We'd take our three-month old fetuses of songs into the studio and grow them into snarling monsters together,” Souza says. “Lyrically, I find myself thinking about the morbid truth that we will all die one day and descend into the unknown—so you might as well grab life by the balls.”
The two founding members of Dead Posey first met at a recording studio in Hollywood in 2013 during an album release party. “It wasn’t really my scene,” Souza says, "so I wandered off alone and found a kindred, outsider spirit in Kyle.” She noticed Foster while he was lighting a candle inside a miniature glass cottage and the two launched into a conversation about setting Tinker Bell's house on fire. After discovering they shared similar musical influences, as Souza puts it, they “stumbled around in the weeds together" with various projects and bands, eventually leading to the birth of Dead Posey.
2017 brought live shows AND A GROWING FANBASE into the mix, and saw the band's music featured on the likes of mtv's teen wolf, and promos for fox's lucifer, sony ps4, netflix (JACK WHITEHALL: TRAVELS WITH MY FATHER), and more. the band is currently recording their second ep to be released in spring of 2018.
