SWFL GRRL PUNK
The Young Dead is a collective of artists who only care about one thing: music. Angela, Kristian, Collin, and Pete came together to create music they love to play. For this band, there’s nothing more gratifying than playing live and recording music.
Angela started the Young Dead as a way to live out her riot grrl dreams. All she ever wanted to do in life is front a band. After years of putting her passion for music aside, she picked up her guitar and started screaming.
Although Kristian didn’t consider himself a bass player at the time, Angela encourage him to pick up and play with her almost 10 years ago. At that time, Kristian was only making music electronically, like drum and bass and hip hop. The two started playing together just a short time before the Young Dead began.
Pete started playing drums in the Young Dead after about 3 years. Angela and Kristian felt like they finally found the drummer that could bring the intensity and power the band needed. Pete also brought his extensive knowledge of music theory with him. This only broadened the creative collaboration between the band members.
Collin came into the band only 2 years ago, but his arrival impacted the band’s sound dramatically. Collin comes from years of playing in fringe metal bands. His love for all types of guitar rock really became apparent when the 4 members began writing together.
The EP “Righteous Violence” is a testament to how these 4 musicians brought all of their influences together to make something truly authentic. Just like the members of the Young Dead, the album has nothing to prove – it’s art taken at face value, fearless and with nothing to hide.
