Originally released independently, “Rouge Carpet Disaster” served as a pivotal moment for Static Dress. Produced by Erik Bickerstaffe of Loathe and written by the band themselves, the album showcases their unique and imaginative sound that defies categorization. Spanning genres such as emo, screamo, metal, pop, and electronic, “Rouge Carpet Disaster” stands as a testament to their ambitious and boundary-pushing artistry, making it one of the most impressive rock releases in recent memory.

Static Dress first made waves in the alternative music scene with their 2021 EP, “Prologue… (Comic Book Soundtrack).” The EP, acclaimed by Kerrang! readers who voted the band as the Best New Band Of The Year in 2021, laid the foundation for Static Dress’ grand vision. Acting as a comic book and official soundtrack, “Prologue…” introduced fans to a parallel universe filled with captivating puzzles and lore.

Stay tuned for more tour dates, as Static Dress plans to announce additional shows in the coming weeks.
