Dead 27s Announce 2016 Winter Tour Dates
Select Show Dates with Earphunk, The Marcus King Band, Vegabonds & more!
Charleston, SC – Gearing up for a 2016 Winter Tour, award-winning Charleston rock band, Dead 27s, are putting the finishing touches on their debut album helmed by Grammy Nominated Producer, Ben Ellman. The 27s spent the latter half of November at The Living Room Studios in Ellman’s hometown of New Orleans with Brian Coogan of Pretty Lights on keys and vintage gear lent by Ani Difranco. Ellman, who’s best known for his role as Saxophonist for NOLA based Galactic, has been racking up production accolades over the past five years, most notably a Grammy nomination for his work on Trombone Shorty’s 2010 Album, Backatown. He has recently been gaining praise for his production work with The Revivalists, Ryan Montbleau and co-production efforts on Galactic’s latest release Into the Deep. The album will capture the evolving Dead 27s sound, reminiscent of powerful rock songs mixed with contemporary dance/pop energy and a twist of 70’s funk & soul. Think Soundgarden hanging with White Denim and Curtis Mayfield.
