Hamilton’s Dead Tired has announced their new EP Vol. One will be released today, September 15, 2016 via New Damage Records. The EP will be available digitally and on 7″ vinyl. The vinyl pressing is limited to 300 (random mixed colours) and is available at this link. A limited run of 50 special bundles including a back patch with art designed by Franz Stefanik is also available at this link.
Here’s what the band want you to know about their new EP: “So Dead Tired are releasing the first new EP in a series of four creatively named Vol. One. It varies slightly from the Self Titled full-length that was released sort-of two years ago and sort-of again earlier this year. That full-length was well received but it is important to note this new release definitely sounds better and the songs certainly have more of a gnarly groove to them (whatever that means). Let’s be honest, it is very difficult trying to explain what it sounds like. Music is so subjective unless you’re Elvis. When you are your own genre (like Elvis) you sound like yourself. When you’re a punk band of crotchety 30-somethings, you sound like whatever musical influences the listener has been exposed to. Baby Boomers and those who specifically prefer top 40 jams usually can’t tell the difference between Dead Tired, Rage Against The Machine, Nirvana, or Converge. It is all “too loud.” If you try really hard, you’ll find traces of Dolly Parton and Devo on this EP (if that’s your thing)…These dinks aren’t reinventing the wheel; they’re just trying to rip it before they RIP for good.”
