Dead Freights Tackle Toxic Masculinity on “How Much To Call Me Daddy” Premiere

Rising indie stars Dead Freight tackle toxic masculinity on new single “How Much To Call Me Daddy?”. Check out the premiere here…



Dead Freights

Lifted from their upcoming debut album, due for release in January 2024, rising indie-rock outfit Dead Freights have released their new single, “How Much To Call My Daddy?”

Signed to Gary Powell’s (The Libertines) 25 Hour Convenience Store Records, the track, which delivers two minutes and eleven seconds of pure, unadulterated hi-octane rock and roll, is premiering right here.

On the subject of the single, the band says:

“‘How Much to Call Me Daddy’ takes you on a journey through the darker regions of masculinity and whilst again it exemplifies the sheer raw energy of the band, it also lays it’s moral compass on the table regarding questions of ‘toxic masculinity’.”

Label head Gary Powell says of the band:


“The Dead Freights are a unique beast, in that they have taken all of the ‘best bits’ that influence them musically and otherworld creatively, to produce a body of work that encapsulates whom they are as individuals and as a band. It is an absolute pleasure to not only sign them to my label 25 Hour Convenience Store because of the their creative brilliance but also to produce them – and there was no better backdrop for this than our own Albion Room Studios.”

The band creates anthems for Generation Z of misfits, punks and goths, and hopes you will join them on their journey as they head into 2024 and the release of their debut album.

The Dead Freights will release their debut album in January 2024, and until then, keep up with all their news via their Official Instagram Page.

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
