Regina based folk-bluegrass ensemble will play three shows in the Maritimes later this year with special guests Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band.
The Dead South will celebrate the release of their fourth studio album in fine style, with their Grand Ole Opry debut set for February 10, 2024. This milestone moment is a thrilling honour for the four-piece string band that blends Bristol Sessions-era bluegrass with distinctly modern outlaw country, a broadly appealing balance of levity and darkness. The Opry debut builds on their Nashville breakthrough, a sold out Ryman Auditorium show in June 2023.
The Saskatchewan band recently added 40 shows around the world to their 2024 touring calendar, including the headline run across their home country. Highlights from the upcoming Chains & Stakes World Tour include first-time arena shows in Canada (Vancouver, Edmonton), major festival headlining slots in the USA, Europe and Australia, the band’s debut in Mexico City, and two nights at the Light House Arts Centre in Halifax.
Chains & Stakes showcases the band’s most assured and adventurous studio work yet, with songs that hit every mood. From the mighty train chugging Tiny Wooden Box to the poignant storytelling of Son of Ambrose, from the intricate mandolin and banjo moves of 20 Mile Jump and A Little Devil, to the surprising sonic plot twists and jump scares of Completely Sweetly and Yours To Keep, the new songs demonstrate growth, mastery and originality worthy of the brightest lights and biggest stages.
