News: All Is Not Dead Quiet With Their New Single, “The Hanging Man.”

Kevin Keegan says, "This song is about having to be the punching bag for other people's struggles. Not being able to take responsibility for one's own actions and turning those around you into scapegoats."

Dead Quiet

Dead QuietVancouver-based doom metal mercenaries DEAD QUIET now has a new single, “The Hanging Man,” available online to stream via Artoffact Records last week. 

On the release, vocalist Kevin Keegan says, “This song is about having to be the punching bag for other people’s struggles. Not being able to take responsibility for one’s own actions and turning those around you into scapegoats.”

“The Hanging Man” follows September 11, 2020’s Truth and Ruin, a favourite of Exclaim! Magazine, Beatroute, V13, and more. The album reached #1 on the National Canadian Campus Radio (Loud) and was also featured on CBC Rock Canada.

Formed in 2014, Dead Quiet established themselves quickly with the release of their debut self titled record in 2015. By the time writing commenced for their follow up record, Grand Rites in 2017, Dead Quiet had found their perfect line up in Kevin Keegan (Barn Burner), Brock MacInnes (Anciients), Mike Grossnickle (Hashteroid) and Jason Dana

The release of Grand Rites on Toronto’s Artoffact Records was followed by two European tours, one of which being direct support for John Garcia (Kyuss), as well as numerous festival appearances including Desertfest Belgium and Into the Void (NL), further cementing the band as one to watch out for. After a rigorous year of touring, the band had no intention of slowing down and swiftly entered the studio to record their third record: Truth and Ruin. 

Again teaming up with Artoffact, Truth and Ruin saw the addition of Mike Rosen to the band and further broadened the already keyboard laden sound they’d established on previous efforts. Truth and Ruin proves that work ethic and chemistry can truly refine a band’s sound to what they had always been striving for: heavy instrumentation combined with rich melody and uniquely personal lyricism, making Dead Quiet one of the hottest, must-see bands on the Canadian landscape.
