“Mix grinding guitars, anthemic choruses, unyielding hooks and the unsettling voodoo vibe of the best Southern folklore, and you’ll get an idea of what Dead Posey are about” – Guitar World

DEAD POSEY - Parasite (Official Music Video)
Like ghosts from rock ‘n’ roll lovers past, wedded duo Dead Posey’s aggressively provocative sound lingers between two worlds like Jekyll & Hyde, instantly hypnotizing you. Following up on their debut EP Freak Show, Danyell Souza (Vocalist/Producer) and Tony F. (Producer/Multi-instrumentalist -formerly of Eve 6) have concocted a world from the dark corners of their minds with their 2nd EP, Malfunction, which is available for order here.

Track Listing
  1. Head Of The Snake
  2. Parasite
  3. Bad Things
  4. Holy Roller
The four track EP invites listeners into a nightmarish fever dream, fueled by Danyell’s wicked vocals, Tony’s unholy guitar and drum tones, and flashes of soul-sucking industrial production meticulously arranged by the two. Topped with lyrics that will haunt and seduce you into the pair’s twisted minds, what better way to visually symbolize Malfunction than with the cover art they photographed, last minute while in quarantine at home along with the rest of the world.

A little back story on creating the official music video for ‘Parasite’ in the words of Danyell Souza:
“Music videos and the visual medium are such an important aspect to Dead Posey that we were crushed when hit with the reality that due to the state of the world we would be unable to shoot all the music videos we intended for our EP, Malfunction. However, a few months ago we did a day of filming some video content and did a few takes of performing our song ‘Parasite’ while we were at it. Thanks to that day of shooting using our manager’s camera, we had enough raw footage that we were able to edit it ourselves in iMovie & Final Cut and turn it into the official music video for ‘Parasite’.
Given how everything has been the last few months we were required to do everything with this video completely in-house, when we had originally planned on working with directors and other professionals for our videos. We set up a whole day of shooting, bought all the props and staged the set, rented the location and arranged lighting & camera angles (special thanks to our digital marketing manager Paul Crary for working with us on the shooting day and letting us really hone in on our vision). We are used to doing most everything ourselves with our music anyways – writing, recording, producing, mixing, mastering – so this wasn’t new to us in that regard. Art is created in all types of situations; in this case it was a happy accident that we could concoct a music video on a shoestring budget out of this footage. We hope you enjoy it!”
“Picture a movie directed by David Lynch, with Salvador Dali responsible for the set design, Edgar Allan Poe as principal writer, and Dead Posey providing the soundtrack, and you can begin to understand the journey this short, but perfectly formed EP is about to take you on.” – Metal Talk
“Firstly,’Head of the Snake’; dirty rock, very inventive layers with an excellent build to the chorus. It’s a strong open to start the EP, especially in the lyrical department.” – Distorted Sound Magazine
“The industrial fusion of ‘Parasite’ follows, a riff that grabs you early, industrial drums and a monster chorus which worms into the memory bank and feasts with abandon. The vocals range with riotous shrieks and sultry deep passages, all over a bank of sound that gets the feet tapping from the start.” – The Razors Edge
‘Malfunction’ showcases blackened, gloomily introspective themes, and the duo consciously utilises visual devices to further this tone: in using a jewellery box tune at the beginning of ‘Bad Things’, for instance, to give the track a horror-esque nature while maintaining an edgy sense of wit evocative throughout their work.” – Into The Pit UK
“The EP ends on ‘Holy Roller’, which is my favourite song on the album. The track starts with what sounds like a tape being put into a cassette player, and distorted drums are almost immediately thrown into the mix, alongside a bass that is plucked lowly.”
– The Moshville Times
“Industrial, electro music always manages to sound superb when lurking in the shadows. When it gets really good, though, is when it wraps that around an unashamed pop hook. On the basis that “Malfunction” does exactly that, you’d best keep an eye on Dead Posey as whatever passes for fame in these times could be theirs.” – Maximum Volume
“Such impact with such few releases, it’s staggering just how far Dead Posey has come in such a short amount of time. However, it’s easy to see why. They have such mass appeal and Malfunction is certainly just going to add to that.” – GBHGL
Dead Posey broke into the rock scene in 2018 with their Sumerian Records debut EP Freak Show and standout track “Don’t Stop The Devil”, which now has over 20 million digital spins from their ever-growing ardent fanbase. Feeding a vigorous appetite for performing live, Dead Posey has unfurled their punk-infused high-octane live shows at notable festivals such as Louder Than Life and Aftershock and have unleashed their riveting energy on illustrious stages such as Rock City and Electric Ballroom in the UK, Gramercy Theater in NYC and other iconic venues in the US.
Dead Posey’s music has been heard in Fox’s Lucifer, MTV’s Teen Wolf, Marvel shows like Cloak & Dagger and Jessica Jones and Netflix’s Jack Whitehall –Travels With My Father among others, as well as in ads for Taco Bell, Sony PlayStation, Riot Games’ League of Legends, and many more. The duo has been featured in the likes of The Huffington Post and Guitar World Magazine, Hot Topic on their “I Like Scary Movies Experience” feature, popular podcasts such as The Boo Crew & The Fred Minnick Show and more.
