Chicago's Dead Ending can be described as an '80s-influenced hardcore/punk band and includes members of Rise Against, Alkaline Trio, Articles of Faith and All Eyes West. The band boasts two releases already under their collective belt: 2012's self-titled EP and DE II
the following year, both released on Alternative Tentacles. Now, the band is gearing up for the release of DE III
Dead Ending formed back in 2011, when guitarist Jeff Dean met and befriended Vic Bondi, the frontman of legendary Chicago punk band Articles of Faith, while on tour. The two bonded together over hyper-aggressive 80's bands and discussed the possibility of starting their own, and kept in touch over the years. Fast forward to 2011 and Dean began writing songs and recruited longtime friend and Alkaline Trio drummer Derek Grant to help him lay the tracks down in Million Yen Studios, where Jeff works as an engineer. Vic liked the songs and signed on. Joe Principe of Rise Against then came on board as bassist and Dead Ending was officially born.
