Bio

Dead Star Renegade was born in The Basement of Melbourne’s iconic Esplanade Hotel on 20.08.2009. We released our first Single ‘Tommy Gun’ in Nov. of 2010 and in March of 2011 followed that up with our debut album ‘Blackwing’. “Dead Star Renegade have launched their sterling debut effort, Blackwing, an album that boasts all the essential ingredients required for a classic hard-rock album, without sounding like it's well and truly past its used by date...They're the kind of quality act where success isn't so much a matter of if, but only when. ” Justin Donnelly - Beat Magazine With a steadily growing base of loyal supporters both locally and internationally 2012 promises to be a big one for the band with tours of both India and Northern Europe in the wings as well as a host of Local, Interstate and Regional shows. There is also an Acoustic E.P. looming early in the year along with the band’s first official Music Video. In a sea of tired classic rock clones Dead Star Renegade is taking Rock and Roll by the throat and smacking it right into the here and now.

Myyyyy Tommy! From the second the riff kicks in, to the final vocal wails by Mr. Jimmy VanZeno, Tommy Gun does not disappoint! That's not to say the other instruments aren't doing their part - Jay's drumming and Tim's bass lines provide not only a basis for the other musicians, but are amazingly interesting in there own right!

Myyyyy Tommy! From the second the riff kicks in, to the final vocal wails by Mr. Jimmy VanZeno, Tommy Gun does not disappoint! That's not to say the other instruments aren't doing their part - Jay's drumming and Tim's bass lines provide not only a basis for the other musicians, but are amazingly interesting in there own right! And the dual guitar attack of Matt 'Shorty' Owen and Matt 'Gunz' Rowe (Now replaced by Vik Hush) rounds out their totally unique sound. Tommy Gun is just one of all 10 songs on the album that I recommend, you will NOT be disappointed! Hey this was fun, I should do more.. -Tyler D

What a riff - love it! As heavy as hell, but still with a great catchy lyric and melody. You can't help but nod the head up and down when you've got this one blasting out!

Complex and interesting - great songwriting. Very catchy, great melodies and a lot of interesting changes in the song.
