Hull four-piece Bedsit have announced their Dead Bands EP. The new collection of songs will be released on CD and all major digital platforms on the 3rd of February via their own label, Forever Underdogs. The CD version along with a limited edition T-shirt is available for pre-save here.
The tracks on the EP were mastered by Pete Waher whose list of credits include Nick Cave, Nine Inch Nails, Pixies and Garbage.
Speaking on Dead Bands, Bedsit said: “The EP is about the chaos and uncertainty of modern times,” say the band, “the struggle for meaning and motivation. We all have the sense that something isn’t right. We often get cynical and angry. But, occasionally, we get a glimpse of the magical – a moment of ecstasy – and that relief is worth living for. This is our first EP as a full band and the title track is a celebration of the heritage of live music. From gigantic rock stars who inspired generations, to local artists who you think never got the exposure they deserved, they were all answering the same calling – blessed release. How those burning passions, die as they may, continue to smoulder in the hearts of strangers, inspiring joy and creativity.”
In support of the EP release, Bedsit have also announced their first headline UK tour with dates as follows:
