OURFAMOUS DEAD – BRIT-ROCKERS RELEASE NEW SINGLE, TOUR AND WORK ON DEBUT ALBUM!
April 5, 2012 by writer
Rising Rampant Electro-rockers ‘Ourfamous Dead’ drop new single ‘Claws At The Door’ on Monday 2nd July 2011, through all digital stores and prepare for ascent.
Pulling from the likes of ‘My Passion’, ‘The Blackout’, and ‘Enter Shikari’, Ourfamous Dead have arrived to feed their contagious warped brand of Hi-Octane electro-rock to the masses!
Born in the latter part of 2009 and hailing from Leeds. Ourfamous Dead are rapidly finding new fans and racking up critical national acclaim for their highly-paced melodic electronic punk. The Yorkshire road warriors have widely toured throughout the UK sharing stages with everyone from ‘Evarose’, ‘Atlas & I’, ‘Dave McPherson (INME)’, and ‘Tyler Mae’, through to ‘Funeral for a Friend’, ‘ISPYSTRANGERS’, ‘Gallows’, and ‘The Blackout’. To assist their climb in becoming a fresh face for the exciting breed of Brit-rock hopefuls, the electro-rock crew released their debut EP ‘I Am Human’ at the tail end of 2011. The record notched up widespread national coverage and sparked many reviews, including a glowing endorsement from Rock Sound Magazine, hailing the band as an ‘infectious amalgamation of AFI and Lost Prophets’.
Ourfamous Dead are now braced to take the UK scene by the scruff of its neck. The dynamic quintet release their brand new single ‘Claws At The Door’ this July; the single is lifted from the band’s eagerly awaited debut album (due for release at the end of the year). Showcasing OFD’s growing maturity and song writing guile, ‘Claws At The Door’ is more anthemic than their previous work, undoubtedly pushing the boundaries and adeptly exploring the use of twisted dynamics and weaving structures. The video for ‘Claws At The Door’ certainly looks the part too; filmed in a dilapidated old theatre, the video is set to light up TV screens during the coming weeks.
