“For the whole day I have been rocking out to Dead Modern Villains. Had it on at home and I had it turned up at the office. Personally I am a free download junkie so when I seen the free downloads I just had to listen to those first. Of the three free downloads I really like Something to Do, it is a perfect jam for our local scene. The song was great but there was another song that impressed me even more. The Green Bay, Wisconsin band which consists of Keith Bouche, David Arendt and Mitch Rudolph has a song titled Friends By My Side that really has a special ring to it. The type of feel to it that my heart says it belongs in the intro to a hit TV show like That 70's Show. Overall I think the song Something to Do is a better song, but there is this one part of the song Friends By My Side that is absolutely worth a million dollars. That's just my thoughts on the band, I think they are excellent and I strongly suggest you take your DMV test. Get behind the wheel by going to their website.”
“The Dead Modern Villains spin a brand of hard-edged rock and dirty blues that will appeal to any fan of rock ’n’ roll in its many forms. The Villains represent a group of musicians that love what they do, do it well and are willing to work to no end to rock their sound. Their original tunes and stage presence will have new audiences joining the ranks of their loyal fans. The band has also seen recognition come from their peers and other musicians, as the trio was nominated for 2012’s Rock Band of the Year by the Wisconsin Area Music Industry”
““Green Bay’s not going to want to miss out on the opportunity to see [these guys] in this rare, all-age, in-store performance, It’s going to kick some ass, being their first show back on stage after their crazy crash. Thank God, they are all OK. Green Bay would have lost the real deal.” -Todd Magnuson Rock 'n Roll Land, GB”
"Trio puts down heavy grooves, dirty blues"..."Bouche has been in bands since he was 18, and it was in one of those groups that he first hooked up with Rudolph. In need of a bass player, they found Arendt through a friend"..."Their live shows have since evolved to showcase their original rock, including the 15 tracks they laid down at Rock Garden Studio in Appleton for "Wisconsin Blues." Released Aug. 9, 2011. It's their follow up to last years live EP recorded at Chicago's Elbo Room."
“Overall – Every track has a well-written chorus. There always seems to be a unique twist to every song, something to catch listeners on their first experience. Multiple listens are rewarding and ear-opening with solos, interesting bass work, and flexible/adaptable drumming. These tracks demonstrate a real chameleon-like ability – taking a little bit of something from everywhere and throwing it in the mix. Just from the variety in atmosphere of the songs these guys write, you can tell they are well versed in all that is rock. There’s something for everyone here, DMV are a rock’n’roll buffet.”
“A high energy original rock band that stands out above most others in this area. Pure, uncompromising Rock music.”
