Dead Soldiers: Sad Songs and Story Time

Dead Soldiers is an eight-piece band from Memphis, Tennessee, whose eclectic compositions feature a rock’n’roll core that lifts five-part vocal harmonies, horns and strings to create a wall of sound. Building on the musical traditions of the Delta and the melting pot aesthetic that first made Memphis the home of rock and roll, their music is at once irreverent and uniquely American. While firmly rooted in the modern urban South, they draw heavily from the inspiration of a range of artists: Tom Waits to The Band, John Prine and Bob Dylan to Frank Zappa and Randy Newman. Like Dead Soldiers, they’re all artists who refuse to be easily classified. With humor, cynicism and an underlying foundation of humanity, Dead Soldiers’ songs root for the underdog while skewering the hypocrisy of our post-modern media landscape.

On the heels of their first new music release since 2017 — *Dead Soldiers: Ride EP* — the band also has a video premiere on June 6 at the Memphis Listening Lab. Recognized for theirr raucous and rowdy shows, they seldom get to perform a fair bit of their catalog that is more conducive to a listening room environment. This show will feature many of Dead Soldiers’ least-performed songs and unique arrangements of existing songs in their live repertoire.
