Introducing ... Shoot The Dead

Introducing … Shoot The Dead

Shoot the Dead have risen from conception through to becoming one of Brighton’s most talked about new bands.

Rising up organically through impromptu gigs in Brighton's thriving free party scene, the band have created their own brand of dance infused Brighton rock.

With their unique combination of frenetic rhythms, driving bass, searing guitar riffs and Andi’s phenomenal vocals, they have produced a collection of hook laden tunes, citing collective primary influences as diverse as the Beatles through to the Prodigy and Hendrix through to Orbital.

The band takes their name from a line borrowed from horror maestro George Romero.

“There's all these zombies coming out, covered in blood and someone shouts “shoot the dead,” explains the band, who have equally embraced with relish their initials STD, referring to their fans as simply “carriers”.

Ironically, with all this talk of zombies, Shoot the Dead are very much a live band delivering mesmerizing performances set against a backdrop of thought provoking visuals and eclectic songs that range from the sleazy title defying “Lullaby” through to the more aggressive and hi octane tunes such as “Inhuman” and “Kill Machine Kill”.

More recently they have sold out venues in Birmingham , Bournemouth and of course Brighton, leading to the band being offered a full set of UK tour by promoters.

2011 saw the band release their debut single Don’t Stop Dancing, which came with this superb video from award winning director Shane Ward.
