Brooklyn trio Dead Stars is a sonic throwback to the ‘90s with a modern twist. Blending elements of rock, pop, and grunge, the band creates a large, resonant sound full of memorable hooks, melodic vocals, and plenty of guitar solos. Having spent the past couple of years winning over fans with their energetic live show, Dead Stars is gearing up to release a new EP via Uninhabitable Mansions, a label founded by fellow Brooklyn band Radical Dads. Entitled High Gain, the EP will be released digitally on June 4th.
High Gain opens with “Waste Away,” a bright, upbeat track with a toe-tapping rhythm and sing-along chorus. The perfect anthem for a sunny day, you can stream “Waste Away” where it premiered with MTV Hive today or download the FREE MP3 HERE, and we encourage you to post & share.
EP track “Fractured” embodies the band’s signature sound with heavy, energetic guitar, driving percussion, and a chorus that explodes with electric energy. “Let It Go” slows things down, setting a nostalgic vibe with fuzzed-out guitars and wistful lyrics. “Staring At The Sun” is a mid-tempo cut with a steady beat and crunchy bass, complete with a buzzing guitar solo.
Those who haven’t yet experienced Dead Stars’ infectious live show will have a handful of chances to catch them over the next couple of months. Be sure to check out the band live, and stay tuned for more news, coming soon!
