Death By Steamship / Bio

Formed in the summer of 2009, Death By Steamship is a raw, steadfast punk band with three releases on Whoa! Boat Records. The first, a CD only E.P. titled "Fall Of The Viaduct", is a now out of print concept album of sorts, with each track loosely based on different high-density Seattle neighborhoods. Death By Steamship's second release, "S.S. Endurance", an eight-song 12" recorded in analog by Conrad Uno at Egg Studios, finds the band hitting their stride. The album exudes driving force from start to finish with artfully grinding guitar work riding the back of thundering bass lines; Anchored by the relentlessly pulsating drums, all caught in a maelstrom of bluntly seething vocals. A mist glowing national reviews in many vital punk mags, Death By Steamship embarked on a rather successful thirty-two day tour to the Midwest, looping through the Southwest and back up the coast over the entire month of September 2011. Nine months later, Death By Steamship is back at it again with their third release, a three-song 7", aptly titled, "Facetious". The bouncy opener evokes the sweet and sweaty days of summer with the sun out, a cold beer, and the stereo tuned all the way up. While track two shows the band adeptly going from minimalist to manic, time and again, threatening and sneering in their trademark, honest yet sarcastic way. The B side is rounded out by a grimy, meticulous mid-tempo ripper, displaying the bands darker, grungier side. Not ones to slouch, Death By Steamship immediately followed the release of "Facetious" with a quick ten day jaunt to the Bay Area and back.
