The Dead South
Black Deer Festival, Europe’s premier Americana playground, has revealed further festival favourites as part of its ‘three years in the making’ 2022 comeback line-up. The UK’s ‘Best New Festival’ takes place in the wild and spectacular surroundings of the oldest deer park in England, and will welcome Van Morrison, Wilco (Uk Exclusive), The Waterboys, Foy Vance, Drive-By Truckers, The Dead South and many more to its stages next summer.
Tangy banjo and back chop beats drive “Blue Trash,” the third song from The Dead South’s forthcoming Sugar & Joy. Out today, “Blue Trash” is a playful acknowledgement that along their road from unsigned Canadian string set to Gold Certified, JUNO Award winning, Billboard charting band, some have taken issue with the prairie pickers’ progressive style.
Following on from their heavily praised 2016 sophomore album ‘Illusion & Doubt’, and their breakthrough hit ‘In Hell I’ll Be In Good Company’, which has so far smashed through the 100million views barrier on Youtube, Canadian bluegrass heroes The Dead South now return to showcase their highly anticipated third album ‘Sugar & Joy’ with their latest single ‘Diamond Ring’.
Canadian bluegrass band The Dead South are set to bring their foot-stomping music to Western Canada on an 18-date fall tour in support of their upcoming album Illusion and Doubt (Curve Music / Entertainment One), set to be released November 18, 2016. The tour will kick off on November 23 at Tracks Pub in Olds, AB and wrap on December 16 at The Exchange in their hometown of Regina, SK. For ticket information visit: www.thedeadsouth.com.
