Among this year’s incredible lineup, Ireland’s Dead Label will be gracing the Sophie Lancaster Stage on Saturday, August 11th, and have set a record-breaking challenge for the biggest wall of chaos that has ever been attempted on this particular stage.
The band recently started working directly with Thrashville (Dave Mustaine, Megadeth, his son Justis Mustaine and Danny Novell) who are currently consulting the band on their new album which should be released in 2019.
Thrashville was started in 2016 when Megadeth mainman Dave Mustaine and his son Justis Mustaine met CTK Management founder Danny Nozell, and they commenced managing Vimic (featuring former Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison) in 2017.
With a legacy that has already involved touring with some of the world’s most exciting metal acts, across three continents – not forgetting an impressive amount of critical acclaim from a host of respectable media outlets, Dead Label have finally released their first new track since their highly acclaimed Throne of Bones sophomore LP last June.
Released on March 7th and gaining over nine thousand views in the first week, “Pure Chaos” sees Dead Label capture the essence of their live sound and enhancing it in a recorded environment. With the last two years being of significant importance, due to their debut North American 40 date tour, (which saw them perform in 30 states), Dead Label gained significant international interest following a vast amount of European, UK and Irish dates, with the likes of Machine Head, Gojira, Fear Factory and Raging Speedhorn to name but a few.
A slew of Summer shows followed with appearances at festivals such as, Bloodstock (UK), main stage billing Metal Days (Slovenia), Made of Metal and Aggressive Music Festival (Czech Republic) and Gothoom Open Air (Slovakia), eventually leading to the band’s ‘Hot New Band’ feature in Metal Hammer (December 2016 issue) and their critically acclaimed slot at 2017’s UK Download Festival. Having already performed at this years Hammerfest UK back in March, Dead Label are currently working on the follow-up to Throne Of Bones and will be performing at this year’s Bloodstock Open Air Festival (August) in the UK followed by dates with Devildriver in mid-August.
