Los Angeles-based rock duo Dead Posey have today released their latest music video for their track “sorry i’m not dead”. Prior to today’s release, the band dropped their catchy single “Russian Roulette” which has amassed nearly 165,000 streams and counting on Spotify alone. Speaking on today’s release, the band shares:
“sorry i’m not dead is declaring war against the patriarchy. It’s cutting down the things that say you’re only pretty if you look like this or dress like that. Expecting women to have perfect hair, perfect nails, a perfect face, and body. It’s pushing against the systems in place that call Dead Posey a “female” fronted rock band. No one ever says “male” fronted rock band – it’s just a fucking rock band. This song is about breaking out of the little box that a society based on traditional gender roles has placed around women for ages.”

Stay tuned for more Dead Posey news coming soon, including 2022 tour dates plus a performance at the legendary Download Festival.
Dead Posey have punctured their proverbial vicious vein by serenading a posse of devoted followers with fuzz-guitar infused rock-and-roll and edgy yet timeless-sounding vocals that pack an anti-establishment punch. When Danyell Souza (lead singer/producer) and Tony F. (guitarist/multi-instrumentalist/producer) met, they quickly tapped into undeniable chemistry that led them down a cathartic path of creating punk-rock sounds riddled with unsettling lyrical themes ranging from sexism, depression, angst and rage against oppressive systems —all doused with a healthy dose of “DGAF” attitude yet still seeing the beauty within the madness.
In 2018, Dead Posey sunk their venomous fangs into the scene with their self-produced debut EP Freak Show and standout track “Don’t Stop The Devil”, which has over 23M digital spins. Most recently, the duo dropped “Russian Roulette”— The adrenaline-inducing banger was listed on Loudwire’s “Best Rock + Metal Songs of August 2021” who described the track as a “…catchy, upbeat party rock anthem with a dangerous flair.” Music programmers also took favor as the tune was added to rock tastemakers’ playlists including Spotify’s Rock Hard, New Noise, and All New Rock editorial playlists and Apple Music’s Breaking Hard Rock and New In Rock.
Feeding a monstrous appetite for live performance, Dead Posey has unfurled their punk-infused high-octane shows at notable festivals such as Louder Than Life, Aftershock, and Shiprocked, and played on illustrious stages such as Rock City and Electric Ballroom in the UK, Gramercy Theater in NYC among other iconic venues throughout North America. The band looks forward to their forthcoming appearance at Download Festival in the summer of 2022 in the UK.
Dead Posey’s music has been heard in Fox’s Lucifer, MTV’s Teen Wolf, Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger, and Netflix’s Jack Whitehall – Travels With My Father among others, as well as in ads for Taco Bell, Sony PlayStation, Riot Games’ League of Legends, Back 4 Blood, and many more. The duo has additionally received positive mentions from the likes of The Huffington Post and Guitar World Magazine.
Like vampires craving blood, Dead Posey’s hunger for unapologetic creative expression is deeply intensifying. Danyell and Tony have steadily begun to uncage their years work of titillating and provocative sounds into the headphones of hardcore musical pariahs and grungey sound-systems abound. Meanwhile, the ever-growing Dead Posey faithful anxiously awaits their debut full-length album in 2022.
What The Press Are Saying
“Dead Posey are a damn power duo… [with] an energetic, industrial-packed EP titled Malfunction, “Parasite” is definitely the standout track. Danyell Souza’s voice soars in the choruses, packing immense grit and power over the thunderous instrumentation behind her.”
– Loudwire (68 Best Songs of 2020)
“The speed of their ascent is testament to the quality of their unique sonic brew. Take some Son House and Mahalia Jackson, throw in a pinch of Exile-era Rolling Stones and blend with a hint of Jim Morrison’s swagger. Top that off with a ferocious blend of grinding guitars, anthemic choruses, unyielding hooks and the unsettling voodoo vibe of the best Southern folklore, and you’ll get an idea of what the band are about.”
– Guitar World Magazine
“Haunting … an awe-inspiring brand of desert-pop/swamp rock.”
– Huff Post
“[Dead Posey]… create a barren, dystopian soundscape, but mix it with strutting, glam rock choruses and hooks. There’s nothing here you couldn’t sing along to, certainly not “Parasite”, short, sharp and kind of punk.”
– Maximum Volume
