Dead Sands

#sxsw #DeadSands


Listen to Rain Prayer

Dead Sands is a Brooklyn based band comprised of Daniel Wood (ex. ...Trail of Dead), Miyuki Furtado (ex. Rogers Sisters) and Jessie Nelson (ex. Head Automatica). Dead Sands pays homage to the Psychedelic rock of the late 1960's channeling bands such as Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Led Zepplin and Can, while adding a fresh modern interpretation. Dead Sands stresses flowing three part harmonies while delivering focused and exhilarating instrumentation. One Year ago Dead Sands set out to record a four part collection of music titled Centuries I-IV. The band has currently recorded the first two installments (Centuries I and II) in the collection and is releasing them digitally on Dont Cry records based out of NYC, as well as releasing handmade collectable limited ed. cassettes at all shows. Over the last 6 months Dead Sands has been performing regionally to packed crowds with an eye for heavy touring over 2012-13.
