Dead Confederate / Lullwater – The Jinx – 06/16/12

From Dead Confederate‘s official bio:

For Dead Confederate, 2012 is shaping up to be an interesting year – [quoting Hardy Morris:] “We are label free at the moment, so its kind of like starting anew in a way. Its all a bit fresher and there is excitement for sure. I think, for musicians, its healthy when things are a bit up-in-the-air. Not just, ‘we gotta make a record by some labels deadline.’ We are just glad to be doing our own thing in the studio and able to take our time and get into it. Its great being on our own timeline. We are planning to go have some fun at SXSW for sure, and find the right home for the record at some point. After the record is released we will tour. My side project, Diamond Rugs will be out at SXSW, so I’m sure we will do some sets with both bands out there and tour all of it later in the year.”

Dead Confederate

Along with writing for and recording the new album, Dead Confederate used the last year to dig into a huge collection of old material. Over the second half of 2011, the band used Facebook as a platform to release 18 unreleased home recordings and B-sides in their first installment of their Sunday Archive series. These releases are something they plan to continue going forward, consisting of never-beforeheard tunes released free and direct to the fans followed by limited edition cassette tapes released in volumes. With a new album on the way and a huge collection of older tunes just waiting for release, 2012 will be anything but “quiet” for Dead Confederate.
