Newer bands are coming out of the woodshop left and right these days, but few bands have been crafting wooden ships on their very first try. This is the case for Athens, Georgia based indie grunge kids Dead Confederate. With the release of their full-length debut Wrecking Ball on The Artists Organization, Dead Confederate not only have been listed on Rolling Stone’s “Six Artists To Watch,” they’re also featured as one of Yahoo!’s most recent “Who’s Next?” artists as well. With the release of their first single “The Rat”, the quintet’s song has been picked up by many radio stations across the West Coast, ranging from Seattle to San Diego.
Back in October of this year, Dead Confederate stopped in New York to perform on Late Night With Conan O’Brien.Needless to say, their performance flat out rocked and there’s lots of potential for this young Athens group. With the release of Wrecking Ball, the Georgia quintet are currently blazing pathways on tour with their Georgia counterparts Manchester Orchestra at the moment. For now, check out the performance and check them out on tour!
