Moes Alley proudly presents Get Dead!Doors: 8 pmShow: 9 pm$15 / $2021+GET DEADAsk the members of Get Dead how long its taken to release their new album, and theyll probably say, Forever. Even though the San Francisco band started recording it more than two years ago, Dancing with the Curse (Fat Wreck Chords, Oct 9th) feels perfectly timed for now.Look no further than the song Pepperspray, written long before the protests of summer 2020. The band had begun collaborating with activist-artist collective Indecline on a video before the George Floyd protests erupted. If there was any time to share the message of Pepperspray, this was it.We wanted to just be able to cut through the noise and have some kind of impact, says vocalist Sam King, and to try to let people know that what theyre doing is okay, and people are behind them.Get Dead rolls only five deepKing, guitarists Mike McGuire and Kyle Santos,, bassist Tim Mehew, and drummer Scott Powellbut Dancing with the Curse sounds like an army. Produced by D-Composers (Fat Mike, Johnny Carey, Baz Bastien, Yotam Ben Horin) and Chris Dugan (Green Day), its 12 songs build on 2016s Honesty Lives Elsewhere without rehashing it.Dancing with the Curse is Get Deads most self-assured album yet, one perfectly suited to the times: raw, energized, frustrated, but ultimately unbowed.
