A blistering tribute to the legendary artists and infamous dive bars that influenced the sound and direction of Crash Midnight, “Dead Aces” combines the band’s early streetwise East Coast style with a strong nod to the Wild West swagger of their new home in Las Vegas. Firmly establishing themselves as the highest-drawing independent Rock Act in the “Entertainment Capital Of The World” by headlining the city’s major venues like Hard Rock, House of Blues, and Brooklyn Bowl, along with multiple residencies downtown, Crash Midnight hurtles you through a collection of late-night hedonism and inspiration.

Talking about the new single, singer Shaun Soho says:

“We give some shoutouts in this thing to everyone from the old Model Cafe in Boston to ‘Self Destruction Blues’ by Hanoi Rocks. The solo sounds like a fucking bar fight. We wanted to write something dedicated to where we came from through the lens of where we are now out west. ‘Dead Aces’ is sort of a catch-all stand-in or so many of the great artists and establishments that shaped this band, especially the ones that unfortunately are no longer with us.”
