Call In Dead is made up of four veteranpunk rockers, one from DC,and the other three from FL.With the oldest at 47and the youngest at 31, they bring their different music experiences and styles together to make a sound that should be familiar to fans of hardcore punk while also giving it the uniqueness that comes from blending their past together into the present. Fitting on shows with pop punk bands, oldschool hardcore bands, psychobilly bands and metal bands is just one example of how it’s been difficult to pin down the answer to the perennial question: What band do you sound like? Four years into playing shows they have released a CD EP,The EP, via Violent Breed Records, a set of digital singles, a live split 7”with 2AMature via DCxPC Live and a forthcoming full-length vinyl album, Deepest Condolences, via Wrecking Crew Records.The band’s first tour was cancelled due to Covid, but they’ve used that time to put on various live streams, start a record label (DCxPC Live), raise money for mental health and for the LGBTQ Center of Central Florida, plus get voted Best Punk Band in Orlando by Orlando Weekly readers in 2020 and 2021!
The first full length, Deepest Condolences, is being released by Wrecking Crew Records and will out inthe fall. It features their original singer, Jaeh Peck, but they have just released a digital single,Patriarchy,with their new singer, Ripley,and the band is stoked to record more songs, to play live, and let people hear how dope the band sounds now with a female vocalist.
Call in Dead has shared the stage with national touring acts Iron Reagan, Doyle, The Virus, TheCasualties, Bloodlet, The Gutter Demons, and more. As shows returned in 2022 they have played with Black Tusk, Year of the Fist, Koffin Kats,and Escape from the Zoo. With several more shows lined up for the spring, and a tour booked for thesummer, they are ready to crank that shit up again!
Their latest track “Patriarchy“, is the first song featuring their new vocalist Ripley. On “Patriarchy“, Ripley waste’s no time, using this blistering slice of hardcore punk, just barely 60 seconds in length, to take aim at current political and societal topics. “It’s our first song with Ripley,” explains the band. “And she brings the aggressiveness of our old singer while also writing powerful lyrics that have taken on special resonance living in Florida. Especially with the “Don’t Say Gay” bill, or looking at the patriarchal rule of Putin and his war crimes against Ukraine.“
Patriarchy” was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Josh Dobbs at Danger Room Recording Services. It is currently streaming across all Digital Streaming Platforms. Listen to it now on Spotify.
