Ok, we don’t do this often, but I’m sure there hard rock fans within our readers. Here’s a cool Australian hard rock band called DEAD CITY RUINS.
The band is touring the UK and Europe from June through August and will be supporting MASTODON, GOJIRA and WOLFMOTHER in Italy.
Here’s the official word:
Dead City Ruins have been carving their own path in the world of Hard rock. Starting out in London England and making their way home to Australia whilst playing as many down trodden, hole in the wall pubs and clubs as one band can fit into a seven day week.
Splicing the musicianship of 70’s and 80’s metal and the soul catching riffs of bluesy rock with the intensity and “f*ck ‘em all” attitude of punk rock, Dead City Ruins have left crowds from London (ENG) to Melbourne (AUS) reeling for more and asking themselves where the hell this band came from.
To date the band has released one E.P “Lost in London” (2007) and just recently released their debut album “MIDNIGHT KILLER” (2011) which has been receiving rave reviews online and regular airplay on local radio.
Throughout August to November 2011, Dead City Ruins completed their first UK & European tour, playing 50 dates across 10 countries, finishing off the tour at an international music festival in Dubai.
Dead City Ruins is a working class hard rock band fuelled by what life throws at them from good times, bad times, disappointments, achievements and life in the cruel fuckin city!
