Some of Detroit’s die-hard music fans braved what seemed to be the 50th snowstorm this winter to heat up with Detroit’s hottest rock band, Dead In 5. They premiered their new record titled Wreck Your World at the Token Lounge in Westland, Michigan on March 1st.

Evoking a sonic mash up of Clutch, Soundgarden, White Zombie, and Led Zeppelin, Dead in 5’s dirty outlaw rock makes fans raise their fists in salute to their musical juggernaut.  It’s ‘Sons of Anarchy’ meets ‘Fight Club’ set in the post apocalyptic ‘Mad Max’ environment of Detroit Rock City.

Since forming in December 2012, Dead in 5 has become an in-demand live act headlining Metro Detroit’s top venues and festivals, in addition to support slots for national acts, Five Finger Death Punch, Godsmack, Sevendust, Pop Evil, Candlebox, Skid Row, and Sponge.  In July 2013, the band took first place in reality TV show American Talent Hunters Detroit search.  In August, Dead in 5 were invited to play House of Harley’s exclusive party for Harley Davidson’s 110th Anniversary in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Wreck Your World includes 11 scorching rock tracks; 7 of which are featured in the movie, Pro-Wrestlers vs. Zombies starring WWE legends “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, Shane “The Franchise” Douglas, Matt Hardy, Kurt Angle, and more. Dead in 5 were tapped to contribute eight songs for the horror movie, which hits screens nationally this April.

Do yourself a favor and get out to one of their upcoming shows. See them March 15 at Longhorn Saloon in Toledo, and April 12 at All Around Bar in Taylor, MI. Wreck Your World will be available soon on iTunes.  If you’d like a copy now contact them on facebook at
