Dead By Wednesday

In 2005, Dead By Wednesday made their first mark by releasing their debut CD Democracy is Dead on Jasta of Hatebreed’s Stillborn Records which sold 3K out of the box with it’s debut. Then in 2008 came The Killing Project, the highly anticipated sophomore full length CD on Eclipse Records (Mushroomhead, Scum of the Earth). The Killing Project demonstrated with a punch to the face, New Haven CT’s very own aggressive hybrid of metal, punk, & real hard core. While considered a metal band, DBW’s older sound was once called “cross-over”. With songs of urgency & importance regarding ideas on religion, current world affairs, race & equality, it was destined to make an impact. And it did. Shortly after, the video for the single ‘Pawns’ by Grammy nominated producer David Brodsky of My Good Eye, NYC, went into rotation on MTV2’s former show ‘Headbanger’s Ball’, as well as Music Choice, Havok TV on Demand, Sirius Liquid Metal, Rock Band, Touch Tunes, and even placed in UFC. Then in 2011, the band worked on all new brutal material & went into the studio recording their equally as important junior LP with long time friend & producer Enoch Jensen. Dead By Wednesday was focused on making “their Master of Puppets” dubbed The Last Parade, and some believe they succeeded in doing so. The release of The Last Parade was followed by a full U.S tour with Straight Line Stitch and Defiler, sponsored by the clothing line Hatewear, Inc. Two of their music videos from the album were featured on Comcast on Demand, one of which was screened at various film festivals across the country. Dead By Wednesday went on to snag the “Best Metal” award two years in a row at the Connecticut Music Awards. Their fourth release in 2014 was a short but sweet five song powerhouse EP entitled Death of the Rockstar, that leaves you wanting more. Following its release, Dead by Wednesday went on a US tour with the Grammy nominated metal band Shadow’s Fall, playing sold out shows across the country. Next they did an American East Coast tour with power metal legends Flotsam & Jetsam, as well a short run with Dirty Rotten Imbeciles (D.R.I.).
