Celebrating their first anniversary, The Deadstones - a four piece Halifax-based outfit playing dirty, punky, bluesy, grungy, angry rock - are beginning to make a name for themselves and have become popular around venues in their home town, Huddersfield and Bradford.
The band was formed by lead singer/frontman Ben Levin and drummer Joe McRae in January 2015 and toegther with Lugh Corbett-Martin on lead guitar and Joe Mackrill on bass produce a high energy set of original songs along with a unique take on those of other artists.
“Our lyrics are politically charged and our shows are up close and personal,” says Ben.
The band has been given the headline slot out of 25 taking part in Fusion Fest in Halifax later this year.
The festival was originally due for February 27, but has now been moved to April 16.
And the band experienced its first studio work in December when it cut a demo track 16 Years.
The lads have got a busy time coming up appearing at Bar Up on January 30 with support from Westfield Avenue and Regiment.
They appear with support from The Sycophants and Mad Love at OTSO in Huddersfield on February 19.
And they’re back on home territory on March 4 when they play The Upper George Hotel.
