Nashville-based alternative rock outfit The Nearly Deads are primed and ready to explode. The band has created a buzz of their very own, mixing the polished pop vocals of singer Theresa Jeane with the aggressive grunge-inspired instrumentals of Steve Tobi, Javier Garza, Josh Perrone, and Kevin Koelsch. The Nearly Deads have managed to create a truly unique genre that not only gives a nod to gritty grunge, but brings it back in a way never heard before. Imagine Kelly Clarkson as front-woman of the Foo Fighters.
The band, originally formed in Tampa, FL, filmed a zombie-themed music video for their song “Never Look Back”. The video lead a viral outbreak, amassing over 6 million views on YouTube, and was also featured in Journeys and Harley Davidson stores nationwide. Not only did Nashville producer Jon King (Augustana, 3 Pill Morning, Darling Parade) record and produce their EP, he also directed the video. The buzz continues to grow every day, partly due to the social networking prowess of the band members themselves. The Deads are truly connected to their fans, and they have built up a “zombie nation” of die-hard supporters.
After years of extensive DIY touring and appearances at notable festivals including SummerFest, PrideFest, Journeys Backyard BBQ, and Vans Warped Tour, the band is excited for everything to follow. What makes The Nearly Deads so likable is not just their undeniably catchy songwriting, but the fact that they are down-to-earth and passionate about what they do. “Survival Guide,” the latest EP, is available at iTunes, Amazon and other fine digital retailers. Their debut full-length "Invisible Tonight" will be released on June 24!
