DEATH BY STEREO Since 1998, Death By Stereo has called Epitaph, Indecision, and Serjical Strike Records home.Why does that matter? If ever anyone needed proof as to how diverse Death By Stereo has managed to be for the last decade plus, well there it is. Flirting with the technical prowess of metal music, the catharsis of hardcore music, and the social consciousness of punk rock, there are very few bands still relevant that can do what DBS does. Recently reaching a deal with Viking Funeral Records, the brainchild of Pennywise staple Fletcher Dragge, the band’s Black Sheep of The American Dream could easily be called the band’s seminal work. Anchored by the articulately aggressive guitars of Dan Palmer and the tongue in cheek persona of frontman Efrem Schulz, DBS is the band that understands, if you are gonna scream into a microphone, you should probably have a damn good reason. Far from the meathead take to heavy music, DBS crafts musically detailed angst that resonates with a crowd that has long been through the circle pits, and now expects more. There is a genuine reason Death By Stereo has remained a factor in the genre for well over a decade…Death for life. Deathbystereo.com
