Dead Ellington Bio:
Dead Ellington is a 5-piece punk rock assault hailing from Boston, MA. Their songs are driven by energy from start to finish, filled with heartfelt lyrics, explosive drums, and awe-inspiring guitars. The band itself is comprised of five friends who share a common bond - the wish to create good music together and the need to share it with the world. The band released the original Refuse Rethink Rebuild Split EP with the now defunct Blue Letter Days in 2006. Now in 2011 Dead Ellington is releasing it’s first full length record also titled Refuse Rethink Rebuild.
Refuse, Rethink, Rebuild is a new way of thinking. It is about looking at the reality of ones surroundings and creating something new. It is all about refusing the present, rethinking the future, and rebuilding the past. “It’s a way of life not just music, it’s our manifesto, embracing the D.I.Y scene from street art to punk rock.”
Always looking to take music further, and hoping to bring an edge to Boston the band continues to write the anthems of today. Over the past 7 years Dead Ellington has shared the stage with countless up-and-coming bands, as well as several national and touring acts. They've played with bands such as Big D and the Kids Table, Kicked in the Head, The Lawrence Arms, The Planet Smashers, Suicidal Tendencies, and The Loved Ones, and have appeared at several of Boston's premiere rock clubs, including Paradise Boston, TT the Bears and The Middle East Downstairs.
Dead Ellington has a commitment to show the world what they are made of and collectively, they believe that they can take this band to the point of touring nationally, and eventually internationally. As stated in the track "City Lines", "We can make it, We can make it if we try".
