Dead Rabbits / Press
“With Dead Rabbits' second coming, A Record to Break, Joshua DeRosa (guitar/voice) and Lucas Fuentes (drums/voice) consummate their bluesy swamp-monster swagger with a true sense of Southern comfort.”
“Dead Rabbits - These Georgia garage monsters put out the magnanimous "The Rabbit That Roared" this past summer, and we ran a spotlight on them in our November issue. This rockin' duo sounds ferocious, and for that we give them four paws up.”
"In one simple statement, the Dead Rabbits rock! Their music reaches into your ears, grabs your ear drums, smacks them around for a while, then leaves them begging for more abuse. Their music is loud, crunchy, soulful bluesy garage rock chocked full of sweet guitar licks, catchy hooks and pounding drum beats."
"Catchy lyrics which avoid overt clichés lead me to believe lines like the swelled, “I could’ve loved you, my perfect demon,” will course over late-night radio airwaves like a Bleach era Nirvana bound for bigger platforms."
"Dead Rabbits have vigor and passion in spades, and DeRosa and Fuentes write hooks and melodies that growl their way into your brain. "The Rabbit That Roared" is one of this reviewer’s favorite albums of 2010."
"To lean on the Black Keys’ influence in their songs is to deny a great many things when it comes to Dead Rabbits. Right out of the gate, their energy, hooks, melodies and presence added a compelling, youthful whir to an already used and abused area of music real estate."
"Dead Rabbits holding down the East Atlanta Village, Dead Rabbits have just one word that describes their music - the niftiest. How this duo makes such wonderful blues rock music with one guitar takes pure talent. It's like their sound is from the 60s, but their skills go way back to times where there was one special fellow who rocked out with just one guitar and made it sound like every instrument possible for a viable blues record. Not to compare their music to Robert Johnson, but the skill these guys have to possess to be a success must be at that level. Lyrically, Dead Rabbits take blues rock to a level that is no longer seen. It's catchy but not cliche, deep but not misunderstood, and overall simple yet radical."
"With only one guitar, Dead Rabbits still manage to sound epically heavy, and there are enough stop-and-start, off-kilter patterns in the riffage to keep everyone paying attention. Dead Rabbits could exorcise demons and make them dance."
"There aren't too many bands that I've come across that sound as comfortable in their skin as Dead Rabbits and that makes their sound all the more powerful and far reaching."
"The great thing about bands like Dead Rabbits is that unlike more trendy groups, they can effortlessly hint at their influences without the need to pay an outright homage. The Atlanta natives have come up with a self-released album that is so pure and raw, it would likely cause Jack White to form yet another band, solely to cover Dead Rabbits."
