Music

Dead To Me

Punk

San Francisco CA

3965
Hailing fro San Francisco, Dead To Me have graced the music world with two LPs(Cuban Ballerina 2006, African Elephnats 2010)and one EP(Little Brother 2008) on the legendary Fat Wreck Chords. While one might expect to hear the typical fast beats with snotty immature lyrics and bro dude attitude of some of their label mates, DTM is a band that takes great pride in being an original sounding band with well thought out lyrics ranging from political to personal, sad to hopeful, and pissed off to posi. These "old soul" punks get more inspiration from books and the multicultural spirit that permeates the San Francisco streets than they do from their punk rock contemporaries. With sounds ranging from straight forward punk and indie rock, to reggae and 90's grunge Dead To Me has always kept fans guessing and anxious to hear what they will do next. In a scene chock full of bands that choose to play it safe and regurgitate tried and true riffs, Dead To Me dares to explore new ground on every release and insist on pushing themselves and their music to achieve consistent originality and constant relevance. Having survived a couple of line up changes, the newest formation is here to stay and the punk scene is better for it.
