Dead Leaf Echo


Listen to Kingmaker

Dead Leaf Echo are releasing a new single this fall complete with a 7" on Custom Made Music followed by an east coast tour. Full Length LP to follow in early 2012.

Over the summer they released a new EP "Versimilitude" on May 31st on Custom Made Music featuring remixes and collaborations from Mark Van Hoen, John Fryer (This Mortail Coil, Depeche Mode), Elika, RxGibbs (Auburn Lull) and Remarkably Spry! (Vandelles).

Previously the band had came back from SXSW on bills with "A Place To Bury Strangers" and "And Your Will Know Us By the Trail Of the Dead" and played sold out shows last year opening for the reunited Chapterhouse and Ulrich Schnauss.

Words like ethereal, atmospheric and dreamy all come to mind after a spin of Dead Leaf Echo's Truth, and while all these descriptions are apt (and have been used repeatedly in other Dead Leaf Echo reviews), it's safe to say that the band could similarly be described as heavy, raucous - or simply, loud-as-fuck.
