Freiburg, Germany-based indie-punks THE DEADNOTES have released a new single taken from their new album ‘Courage’ which is out today through their own newly-established label 22Lives Records.
The powerful new track ‘Ghost On The Ceiling’ deals with a personal story of “hasty decisions made for the sake of a calm conscience, which only lead to make your problems worse and don’t help you achieve happiness in the long run” explains singer and guitarist Darius Lohmüller.

The single follows on from ‘Never Perfect’, another track in which mental health plays a key theme and the release of which marked the beginning of a charitable partnership with organisations (Help Musicians / Music Minds Matter and Ni9ht-H3lps-Mental Health Support) offering help to those affected by mental health issues.
The band are currently donating 1€ of every tour ticket and 3€ for every turquoise vinyl sold via their band shop, as well as collecting donations at live shows and with more contributions planned for the near future.
Recorded at Crooked Rain Recording Studios in Leeds, the new album ‘Courage’ was produced by Bob Cooper (WSTR, Ducking Punches, Nervus), mixed by Beau Burchell (Saosin, The Bronx), and mastered by Mike Kalajian (Saosin, Prawn, Bouncing Souls).
Still in their early 20s, the list of achievements that The Deadnotes have racked up over the last few years is astonishing. They formed the band at just 14 years of age and haven’t taken a moment’s rest since, self-releasing both an EP and their debut album, and relentlessly touring through over 25 European countries.
Sharing the stage with Boston Manor, Don Broco, Beach Slang, The Front Bottoms, Such Gold, and many more, the band recently played their 500th live show—a remarkable feat for such a young band, and one that more than earns them their DIY stripes.
To support the release of ‘Courage’ the band will take to the road for an extensive run of shows drawing in crowds across Germany, France, Austria, Czech Republic and Switzerland before coming to an end in April with five specially selected UK dates.
