Dead Label release crushing new single/video for ‘Deadweight’ today. Listen/watch below…

Today sees the release of ‘Deadweight’, the lead single from the bands’ forthcoming new EP.

The track will feature on the bands’ forthcoming new EP ‘Anthology‘, due for official release on Friday, April 9th with a second single/video for ‘Flux’.

Fans will be familiar with a slew of stand-alone singles released periodically over the last few years from ‘Pure Chaos’ to ‘False Messiah’, ‘Triggered’ and ‘Dystopian Complex’, all of which feature on the new EP.


To celebrate the release of ‘Anthology’, the EP features two new tracks that have never been officially released and have only been heard through the bands live performances over the years with ‘Deadweight’ being the lead single.

Check out ‘Deadweight‘ below:

Following their critically-acclaimed performances with GOJIRA in London’s Brixton Academy and Manchester Apollo back in the Summer of 2019, DEAD LABEL have been attracting the attention of metal fans across the globe, all the while, influencing booking agents and media alike, thanks to their distinctive, extreme heavy groove-based sound.

Drummer Claire Percival commented on the bands’ latest single: “Deadweight’ is a track that’s very personal to Dead Label. It’s a cathartic response to some stuff that happened in the past, so we figured the best way to vent our anger is by turning it into something positive. This has been a very liberating process and we can’t wait to rip it outlive.”

Commenting on the forthcoming album: “When the lockdown first impacted us back in March 2020, we just put our heads down and started writing like we’ve never done before. We explored so many ideas and arrangements, which opened up a rich vein of creativity.

You have to remember, also, this is our very first time writing as a four-piece. Mick [Hynes] has brought a certain flavour to our sound, that ultimately has made it bigger, heavier, and well…. It just crushes!

To say that we’re excited about these new songs is an understatement. They have been written with the passion [and frustration] of our pent-up energy and longing to be back on stage once again. Each song is its own skyscraper…loaded with concrete.  The new material is sounding super heavy!


To celebrate the release of the single, a new ‘Deadweight’ limited-edition T-shirt is now available from March 26th via the bands’ website store, click here.
