It is April 13th 2014 which means it is time to announce the next 'Song of the Week'.
"Nashville, Tennessee based alternative rock outfit, The Nearly Deads, are primed and ready to explode. The band has created a buzz of their very own, mixing the polished pop vocals of singer Theresa Jeane, with the aggressive grunge inspired instrumentals of Javier Garza Jr (guitar), Steven Tobi (guitar) and Kevin Koelsch (bass). The Nearly Deads have managed to create a truly unique genre that not only gives a nod to gritty grunge, but brings it back in a way never heard before."
Originally from Tampa, Florida, The Nearly Deads exploded into the music scene in early 2010 with their post grunge/punk sound. And, since then, they have gone on to release two phenomenal EPs.
Their first release, a self-titled EP, was put forth to iTunes on March 21st 2011. Then, twenty nine months later, on August 20th 2013, the band released their second [incredible] EP, titled Survival Guide. And, the first track found on Survival Guide, titled Brave, is the song earning this week's 'Song of the Week' spot right here on Basement Entertainment's official website.
Beyond this band's addicting and unique sound, one thing is pretty clear, the band is comprised of four insanely hard working individuals. And, with the success The Nearly Deads have had thus far, it is obvious they know what they are doing.
The band's first official music video, for their song Never Look Back, has already received [well over] six million views on their official Youtube Channel since being released in October of 2011. Infact, all of their videos are constantly expanding in views, daily.
"After years of extensive DIY touring and appearances at notable festivals, including Summerfest, Journey's Backyard BBQ and Warped Tour, The Nearly Deads are excited for everything to follow. Their second EP, Survival Guide, is available now and the band is currently working on their first full length album to follow."
With strong influences of the Smashing Pumpkins, Foo Fighters, Taking Back Sunday, No Doubt, Billy Talent, and countless others, The Nearly Deads have certainly discovered their perfect sound. So, of course, with their unbelievable talent, rapidly expanding fan base and overall success, it is evident that this band will be continuing to take over the music scene all around the world. And, their song, Brave, has absolutely earned this week's Song of the Week' spot.
You will want to make sure you continue to follow The Nearly Deads as their first full length album is due out sometime this summer. However, while we all wait for that time to come, why not check out a lyric video made for this week's 'Song of the Week', Brave, found on their Youtube Channel, here:
See you next Sunday when we announce the next 'Song of the Week'. But, before then, catch up on The Nearly Deads and be sure to pick up a copy of their latest EP, Survival Guide.
