Listen to the new Dead Ending track, "Rewire", here
. This song appears on the band's DE III
EP, which will be available next Tuesday, April 15. DE III
features five new tracks that pack a punch like never before, as well as guest appearances from punk legends Jake Burns (Stiff Little Fingers) and Jeff Pezzati (Naked Raygun, The Bomb).
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 other EPs already under their collective belt: 2012's self-titled and DE II
the following year, both released on Alternative Tentacles. Dead Ending formed 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 '80s bands and discussed the possibility of starting their own. 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.
