This is part of our State Of The Art series, showcasing bands every Monday from the featured State.
This month’s State is Maine!
Formed in 2003 DEAD SEASON was Founded by brothers Matt and Ian Truman. Ian is the lead vocalist for the group while Matt plays guitar and does backing vocals. They were later joined by bassist Steven Church (2007) and drummer Dustin Fitzpatrick (2014). DEAD SEASON has sold over 25,000 cd’s, an amazing feat considering the band has done it all on their own w/out the help of a record label. The group hail from Paris, ME and have held their own with some of the biggest names in hard rock history. In their 13 year history they have managed to score gigs on the “ROCKSTAR MAYHEM FESTIVAL” and DISTURBED’S “MUSIC AS A WEAPON TOUR” to name only a few. They have also played gigs with and shared the bill with rock icons like SLIPKNOT, AVENEGED SEVENFOLD, GODSMACK, KORN, MEGADETH and MOTORHEAD. Trust me, that was the short list. These guys have played with everyone.
If you are a fan of FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, MUDVAYNE or KILLSWITCH ENGAGE I strongly suggest you give these cats a listen. They are hard driving. But the beauty is that they manage the keep the melodies simple at catchy!! Go add them on social media and keep up with the goings on of this explosive metal band from the state of Maine.
