A JAMBASE FAVE RETURNS WITH NEW ALBUM IN AUGUST
Dead Confederate will return with their sophomore album, Sugar, on August 24th via TAO Recordings/Old Flame. Sugar was recorded by John Agnello (The Hold Steady, Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr.) and as Dead Confederate's Hardy Morris (guitar/lead vocals) explains, "We're a loud, big-sounding band, and wanted the album to be fun and creative - instead of just recording the songs. It's not like we decided we couldn't have anything grungy or heavy; that's just not all that we're interested in. You can listen to the record a bunch of different ways. What we were doing felt right."
In support of Sugar's release, Dead Confederate will be hitting the road, including dates with Deer Tick and a Bumbershoot after party with Surfer Blood.
More fall dates to be announced very soon.
