Bio

Sydney based Grunge band The Dead Love can be described as nothing less than incendiary.
Since their inception, The Dead Love have maintained a blistering rate of pace, touring relentlessly and honing their signature sound that has captured hearts and minds across Australia and North America.
Whilst developing a reputation as one of Sydney’s most impressive, no-nonsense live outfits, The Dead Love have shared stages locally and abroad with the likes of Dune Rats, Everclear (usa), British India, Kingswood, The Smith Sreet Band, Luca Brasi, WAAX, The Delta Riggs, Born Lion, The Shrine (usa) , Closure In Moscow, Aerosmith (usa), COG just to name a diverse few.
The band has received subsequent airplay and support from Triple J, FBi Radio, Triple M, 3RRR FM, 2RRR PBS FM, Home Brew Radio (77+ Stations Nationally), as well as international radio in the USA, UK, Canada and NZ. Including TV support from Video Hits, Channel V, Rage

2014 the first album Transitions was launched snapping a debut number 5 on the iTunes rock charts followed by a sold out Oxford Art Factory launch show and rave reviews!
February 2016 The Dead Love released the first single ‘Wastelands’ off the upcoming 2nd album ‘So Whatever’ and instantly gained the attention of radio both locally and abroad receiving airplay on Triple J, Triple M + a worthy list of rave reviews. Wastelands started building excitement among fans and industry on the bands new grungier direction.
“The Dead Love’s new single ‘Wastelands’ is a god damned Eden of grunge music” - HHHHappy

“The song’s power-pop hooks catapult grunge into the 2010’s and soundtrack the counterculture of a locked-out Sydney, where live music has been forced into backyards and messy house parties that spill out onto the streets. We could have a fully-fledged revival on our hands here people. Better dust off the old flanno” - Musicfeeds

“For a much satisfying dose of grungy power pop, we turn to Sydney’s The Dead Love and their first single of the year, Wastelands. The Dead Love takes me back to the scuzzy 90′s with the growler of a track Weezer punk with a thick Soundgarden griminess. It’s no surprise the infectious rocker has already claimed a number 1 spot on Australia’s Triple J Unearthed Punk Charts” - IHeartMoosiq

The Dead Love were selected to perform at Canadian Music Week 2016.
So in May the band toured Nth America pre CMW to test the waters and where welcomed by very enthusiastic crowds + radio/media support. Wastelands built solid momentum in the North American market.
CMW showcases secured the The Dead Love North American management with RPM Promotions gun India Coran (now also Crossfire Entertainment).

September 2016 The Dead Love dropped “So Whatever’ and took it to fans live across Australia and North American.

2017 has kicked straight into gear, The Dead Love are well into writing album 3, have again been selected to perform at CMW 2017 billed with Dune Rats, Hockey Dad, The Beaches and more.
Alongside above The Dead Love have hit the ground running with a sold out Sydney COG support and full house Brisbane show with WAAX.

The band will be recording a new single with producer John Angus (The Trews) whilst in Canada for CMW in April, release dates TBC.
It’s set to be another big year for the The Dead Love.

“The Dead Love have that aged and experienced sound that most bands take years to develop...Our hopes are high that more bands like this can save our dying live music industry. Blunt Magazine

"I heard many good things about this band before tonight, but I felt that hardly anything I was told did this awesome live performance any justice. This bands is high energy, four on the floor hard rock that are quite a force to be reckoned with" - Sludge Factory
