The Dead Love


Sydney based Grunge band The Dead Love can be described as nothing less than incendiary.

Since their inception, The Dead Love have maintained a blistering rate of pace, touring relentlessly and honing their signature sound that has captured hearts and minds across Australia.

Whilst developing a reputation as one of Sydney’s most impressive, no-nonsense live outfits, The Dead Love have shared stages locally and abroad with the likes of Dune Rats, Everclear, British India, The Lazy’s, Aerosmith, Kingswood, The Delta Riggs, Born Lion, Calling All Cars, Buckcherry, Closure In Moscow, Van Halen, British India, The Love Junkies, just to name a diverse few.

The Dead Love have had a huge 2016 so far releasing singles Wastelands’ , ‘Love Drugs’, and ‘Summer’ from their sophomore album So Whatever  as well as touring Canada. The lads also showcased their new music at Canadian Music Week.

The Dead Love quickly became one of the most talked about bands at Canadian Music Week, turning heads with each show they played and building a genuine hype that secured the band a Canadian management deal.

Wastelands’ quickly claimed Number 1 on the Triple J Unearthed Punk Charts, whilst scoring airplay on Triple J’s – ‘Short. Fast. Loud‘ and Triple M‘Love Drugs’ scored extremely positive feedback from fans and press alike. The singles encapsulate the bands DNA, inspired by their early grunge and power-pop influences. The album, So Whatever, debuted at #17 on the Independent Australian Albums Chart.

“The Dead Love’s new single ‘Wastelands’ is a god damned Eden of grunge music” – HHHHappy

“The song’s power-pop hooks catapult grunge into the 2010’s and soundtrack the counterculture of a locked-out Sydney, where live music has been forced into backyards and messy house parties that spill out onto the streets. We could have a fully-fledged revival on our hands here people. Better dust off the old flanno” – Musicfeeds

“For a much satisfying dose of grungy power pop, we turn to Sydney’s The Dead Love and their first single of the year, Wastelands. The Dead Love takes me back to the scuzzy 90s with the growler of a track Weezer punk with a thick Soundgarden griminess. It’s no surprise the infectious rocker has already claimed a number 1 spot on Australia’s Triple J Unearthed Punk Charts” – IHeartMoosiq

“The Dead Love have that aged and experienced sound that most bands take years to develop…Our hopes are high that more bands like this can save our dying live music industry.”- Blunt Magazine

“The show stopper of the showcase (Aussie BBQ) had to be The Dead Love…rowdy, loud and full of enough grit to leave the audience breathless and screaming for just one more song.” –JESUS SISTER
