Dead Confederate on KEXP

Dead Confederate is a band that you need to see live. I saw 50-something acts at SXSW and the show that Dead Confederate put on at Trophy's blew most of them away. I've seen them three or four times already and I'm always looking forward to the next show. They spent January and February here in Austin recording their debut full-length with Mike McCarthy (Spoon, And They Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead), which I'm told sounds incredible. They have an EP that you can get, but it’s a little small compared to their live sound. Thankfully I hear that the LP is WAY closer to their live show.

The Athens-based group are on the road playing a bunch of dates this summer, including a performance at Bonnaroo. The tour dates are below, the band is on the web right here, and they're in living color here. They stopped by the KEXP studio in Seattle on Friday to perform a few songs, which you can hear below. There's also video of DC performing "The Rat" in studio. You can always listen live at
