The Dead White Males are a noise-rock-rap outfit from Perth, Western Australia. The band first started playing shows in June 2013 and put out their first E.P ‘The Dead White Demo Tape (TDWM2)’ in late December of that year. Two tracks from the E.P charted in the Triple J Unearthed punk chart for the week ending in the 26th of January 2014. The E.P also received favourable reviews in ‘The Music’ magazine and on the ‘X-Press’ website.
In 2015 the band ambushed their friends at their drummer’s house warming party with a guerrilla acoustic set dubbed ‘Unplugged & Uninterested (TDWM3)’. The set was self-recorded and a limited number of physical E.P’s were manufactured. In September 2015 The Dead White Males put out their first music video for the song ‘Struggle’ which featured footage sent to the band from punters filming them smashing their gear spliced in with back and white anti-communist propaganda and a bizarre sexploitation film.
In 2016 The Dead White Males are getting ready to release ‘The Eric E.P (TDWM4)’. This offering sees the group experimenting further with the three main elements of their sound: punk, noise-rock and hip hop by delivering tracks that isolate their influences.
The Dead White Males’ discography is availably for free download at their soundcloud page until download limits have been reached.
