Formed in 2009, North Texas-based rock band Dead End has played all over Dallas in their never-ending campaign to keep local music alive.
“Dead End was named in honor of everyone who tells you that your dreams are not valid, That doing what you love is a waste of time,” said Kentucky-boy-turned-Texan Bryan Heath, guitarist and front man for the Dallas-based punk rock group.
“Our music represents freedom to be yourself and embrace the collateral damage of pursuing your dreams as art,” said drummer and native Texan Laura Love.
“It is our responsibility as a society to not buy the album made by a bunch of rich people for other rich people to enjoy,” said Heath, “We don’t drive fancy cars or live in mansions and we don’t want to talk about shallow material things like that, not in our music, not ever,” said Love. Heath and Love write the majority of the songs for the band but they are just the heart of the band, beating a melodic rhythm like a hammer on a red hot anvil.
While they have more than enough heart, the soul is just as important and that is where the guitar and bass come in. Dead End would not be complete without the modern-day Texoma red dirt legend Shannon Choate on guitar and real-life professional Ninja Tyler “Wallbanger” Harvey on bass guitar. “We all work really hard both on stage and off,” said Harvey.
