DISCHORD RECORDS’ DEATHFIX ANNOUNCE UK TOUR DATES IN SUPPORT OF SELF-TITLED DEBUT; WATCH “DALI’S HOUSE” OFFICIAL VIDEO
Great news today, Deathfix prepare to make the UK shake this November with their debut live appearance. You might remember the album release from February with Dischord Records, and until now Fugazi’s Brendan Canty and remix master Rich Morel have been incubating in the studio creating sounds and rhythms, fortified with the considerable talent of Jerry Busher and Mark Cisneros.
What started in 2009 as a working relationship, Canty and Morel turned their tour with Bob Mould’s band into a new direction for them both. With Canty’s punk pedigree and Morel’s flair for fun, Deathfix will bring Britain alive with their sounds where Dischord Records fans, glam and prog rockers, lovers of disco, pop and weirdo rock can bliss out in rock-n-roll harmony.

9th November – Prince Albert, Brighton

QUOTES FOR DEATHFIX:
 
“An outlet for Fugazi’s Brendan Canty’s love of prog and glam rock, Death Fix err more towards the Crimson end of the 70s. Piano and guitars soar vertiginously; lyrics are bittersweet or pleasingly surreal.” – MOJO
“Canty and Morel bonded over a love of shaggy 1970s rock, and there’s plenty of Big Star and Deep Purple’s influence to be found on Deathfix, cut with swampy grunge, post-rock, and a touch of funk.” – PITCHFORK

“…transmissions like this are born to be witnessed live.” – SPIN

“Brendan and Rich’s vocals are rich and rough edged, harmonising and flowing around each other.” – LOUDER THAN WAR

“…a worthy risk, the kind that famous labels are supposed to take once in awhile. If sometimes the track is too rich for the given moment, well, that’s the price of genre-busting. In this day and age, calling it straight-up apostasy would just be stupid.”
– WASHINGTON CITY PAPER
