DEAD ORIGINAL the heavy trio of new grunge who carry the emotional vibe of heavy rock is causing quite the stir in the windy city and beyond. Dead Original continues to sell their sound with their new single/video “Bought and Sold” (from their debut EP by the same name), as they continue to carve out their place. Dead Original incorporates their own motto of: “#Make America Grunge Again”, “#Make Grunge Great Again” and even “#Grunge is Back” as they define collectively what Dead Original fans expect – the true feel of rock.
Front-man Paul Wandtke (Trivium, Rock of Ages, Kill Hannah), drummer Sean McCole, and bassist Mike Petrasik (Bedlem) signal that the feel of their rock maintains “less is more.” Their live shows, which you can catch coming up (see below), will embrace the mood of Dead Original’s music. Catch “Bought and Sold” along with their last single “Restrained” under TLG Entertainment/INgrooves.
“Lyrically the single “Bought and Sold” is about greed and corruption with the general consensus that it’s really up to you to make a change and difference in this world. You can’t simply wait around for things to get fixed as anyone and everyone has the potential to make a difference. We think fans of rock will enjoy both this single and album; cheers!” – Paul Wandtke
