This Friday, Atlanta, Georgia-based post-rock/avant doom trio DEAD REGISTER will release Don’t Fail Me – a new maxi-single/EP based around the “Don’t Fail Me” video/single. New Noise Magazine is currently hosting an advance stream of the EP.
DEAD REGISTER‘s most epic song yet, “Don’t Fail Me” comes to life through an intense new live-action mixed-media puppet extravaganza which portrays the emotional depths of the song’s lyrical focus as an official music video. Crafted by Avril Che and M. Chvasta, this video marks the band’s fifth DIY visual production, and the band’s first ever foray into puppetry. Included with the single are three soundboard songs recorded live in Lafayette, Louisiana on the band’s 2019 tour – “Fiber” (Fiber LP), “Ender” (Captive EP), and “Circle Of Lies” from the band’s impending 2021 LP – and “Failed,” a remix of “Don’t Fail Me” reworked by Lament Cityscape.
“‘Don’t Fail Me’ is a standalone single recorded in an attempt for us ancients to stay active, much like a nursing home trip to the mall for weekly early AM jazzercise,” DEAD REGISTER offers. “The song deals with feelings of hopelessness, inadequacy, death, compounding soul-crushing depression, mundanity of life, overcompensation, self-reliance, and ghosts.”
Stream DEAD REGISTER’s Don’t Fail Me EP first now only through New Noise Magazine at THIS LOCATION.
DEAD REGISTER will self-release the Don’t Fail Me maxi-single on CD and cassette as well as all digital providers through their own AVR Records this Friday, February 26th. Find custom character-based merch bundle options and other preorder options RIGHT HERE.
The husband-and-wife team of M. Chvasta and Avril Che burst through the gates forming DEAD REGISTER in late 2013, bringing on a live drummer in early 2014. The DIY-lifers have since produced three critically acclaimed independent releases on their own AVR label (plus a reissue of the Fiber 12″ on Throne Records) and have created five music videos fueled by shoestring budgets and the graciousness of their friends and community. They have toured the US and Canada in support of their Fiber LP and Captive EP and intend to cultivate a life on the road. A large selection of new material is steadily being recorded in-house by drummer, R. Garcia, including the band’s new LP, which is now complete.
Watch for updates on the new LP and much more from DEAD REGISTER to post over the months ahead.
