Dead Confederate Release Album, Confirm Tour Dates
Dead Confederate have announced a series of May tour dates in support of their new album In The Marrow, which has been released today. The band will make their way throughout the South before heading to the Northeast and Midwest. You can find a full list of their tour dates, and stream their new album via Spotify, below. The Indie Outing article on Dead Confederate from the January-February 2011 issue of Relix can be read here.
As previously reported, In the Marrow was recorded in phases over sixth months with David Barbe at Athens’ Chase Park Transduction between the end of 2011 and the summer of 2012. The album features some new sonic colors, too. As the band explains:
From the swampy opening bass line in “Slow Poisons” to the ethereal coda of “Winter Waters,” In the Marrow demonstrates a band in control of an inimitable drawl tethered between the visceral power of Wrecking Ball and the polished menace of Sugar. This new-found poise empowered [bassist Brantley Senn] to rework two demos from the Sunday Archive Series, the aforementioned “Slow Poisons” and “Dead Poetry,” both of which shine on an album bursting with highlights.
All of the members of Dead Confederate stayed busy during the group’s recording hiatus. Frontman Hardy Morris has also written, recorded and performed with Diamond Rugs, the rock ‘n’ roll outfit featuring Deer Tick’s John McCauley and Ian St. Pe of the Black Lips, among others. He also recorded a forthcoming solo album as T. Hardy Morris, while guitarist Walker Howle has followed his passion for visual art, in addition to writing and performing folk music as Tia Madre. Meanwhile, bassist Brantley Senn has focused his efforts on running the band’s new label, Spiderbomb Records, while staying active as a recording engineer.
