Dead Friends are a Psycho Punk Hardcore band from Boston. You can hear influences from early 80's metal to the Beastie Boys to Black Flag. I normally do not like hardcore music(hey, except Fugazi) but Dead Friends I like, I like them a lot. Benny Grotto of Mad Oak Studios recorded these tracks and the sound is incredible. You may recall in our interview with Benny Grotto he mentioned his first album; Black Flag "Damaged." You can hear that Benny used his knowledge of the sounds of that record to capture these amazing songs by Dead Friends.
But enough about Benny, we all already know he rocks, what about Dead Friends? They rock too. If you like Black Flag; you'll want to take a listen to these guys. If you like Phish; I bet Dead Friends will spit at your face.
