DEAD MAN’S MAIL – SATURDAY, 9/26 @ 3:00PM
The five-piece alternative rock group hails from Wilmington, NC. They released their self-titled debut EP earlier this summer, receiving consistent praise for the song quality and their clear intent to breathe life back into real rock n roll.
Dead Man’s Mail was conceived by former Squeezetoy and Afroman drummer Zack Johnson, who now runs the prestigious Empire Agency in Los Angeles. Vocalist Brad Benson is a full-time solo artist and has done extensive session work in Nashville for some major bands, including Parmalee. The guitar work is laid down by brothersJeremy and Michael Roberts. Michael, A UNCW music grad, has toured nationally with several Nashville-based national acts, and Jeremy has been playing with Carolina punk mainstay No Labels Fit since their inception. Rounding out the lineup is Angus Aull II, an NC State music grad, and considered by many to be one of the unsung great bassists in the region. In their short time together, they have drawn high praise for their live performances, opening for major acts at House of Blues in Houston, Dallas and Myrtle Beach, as well as several other notable venues.
