Formed in late 2013 in Huddersfield, Dead End Friends write and perform foot-tapping, head-bobbing, garage rock.
First inspired by artists such as Queens of the Stone Age, We Are Scientists and anything involving Jack White, the trio’s performances are filled with big, heavy power chords, rumbling bass and cymbal crashes, that have been proving that you definitely do not need a nine piece band to bring the house down.
Huddersfield’s answer to Alex Turner, Danny Sharp, leads with his compelling and sharp-witted vocals and punchy guitar alongside drummer Nick Clark and bassist and backing singer Lucas Edgar.
Despite the band’s short life they have already made their presence felt, after getting to the finals of Yorkshire Gig Guide’s Battle of the Bands, working their way high up line ups at festivals throughout the area, such as Big Jam Fest and Halifax’s Routes Festival and getting whole neighbourhoods dancing at dozens of up close and personal house gigs.
This is in addition to releasing their first single, Quiet Life, which they created whilst studying at Greenhead College and Huddersfield New College.
A bright young band bursting with energy, catch them whilst you can at their next local gig at BerryAid at Brew Coffeeshop on August 9.
