DEAD SHED JOKERS RELEASE 3RD ALBUM ‘ALL THE SEASONS’ OUT NOW VIA PITY MY BRAIN RECORDS
Dead Shed Jokers have been on our radar since witnessing the force perform live back in 2012 (although have been going for much longer). 3 Years later they found themselves rightfully sitting on some incredible line-ups/bills including that of Camden Rocks festival in support of their then self-titled album release.
Fast-forward a few more years and now in 2019, Dead Shed Jokers have pulled those years of workmanship, live performances and musical maturity and captured their craft in their new bold, brash and equally beautiful third album release ‘All The Seasons’. The Aberdare/Merythr based quintet have continued to grow into one of the most powerful bands of our time and their new album reflects this.
Behold a band that possesses the ability to hone in on a musical genre/time we can look back on when we think of the heroic genre-defying bands 40-50 years ago- Dead Shed Jokers conquer their own sound and create true gritty orchestrations that resonate pure rock and roll. With essences of Black Sabbath, Kyuss, Led Zeppelin, Hendrix to Them Crooked Vultures, Homme’s Desert Sessions to Arctic Monkeys– Dead Shed Jokers are a stadium band. They deserve to be selling out their shows playing to large audiences from afar, these musicians should be commended for their skills to capture listeners of all ages. Their new album showcases this flawlessly.
Recorded live in just five days, the new album from Dead Shed Jokers is as immediate as anything they have committed to tape. Following ‘Peyote Smile‘ in 2011 and their eponymous album in 2015, the band (as ever),
have dug deep into their collective consciousness to deliver their most personal record to date, distilling the emotional storm life can be into 10 new tracks.
‘All The Seasons‘ is a progressive, intense and dark journey. Tracks flow between high octane mighty rock anthems to tracks with truly haunting vocals from Hywel and exuding melancholy. Throughout this masterpiece, the band produce hard-hitting riffage, thunderous drums and emotionally striking and soulful lyrics/vocals.
