On March 21st Million Dead return with their stunning new single 'Living The Dream' through Xtra Mile Recordings. It's the first track to be taken from their forthcoming second album 'Harmony No Harmony' due out in May.
The video for the single features the band in an alternative Glam Rock/KISS-esque universe where spandex, make-up, and outrageous clothing is everyday, and jeans and T-shirts their stage outfit. Recruiting over a hundred fans via their website to dress up and take part in the video resulted in a ridiculous day's filming in various dodgy North London council estates and the London Barfly.
'Harmony No Harmony', produced by Mark Williams(yourcodenameis:milo, Oceansize, and SiKth) at Battery Studios, is the follow up to their 5K rated debut 'A Song To Ruin' and features, among other things, a 5ft gong on the track 'Engine Driver' and a choir, consisting of friends, fans, and Frank Turner's mum on the songs 'To Whom It May Concern' and 'Father My Father'.
Written and recorded in a little over two months with new guitarist Tom Fowler, 'Harmony No Harmony' sees the band make a bold move forward and push back the boundaries of their post-hardcore roots, into a brand new direction of larger than life rock, fusing elements of Soundgarden, Sonic Youth and the angular hardcore of Black Flag to create, once again, a sound all of their own.
The first chance to hear some of the new material is in the live arena, when Million Dead tour the UK in support of 'Living The Dream'. Full details as follows:
