More details on Dead Confederate's new album

Dead Confederate 
PhotoAs previously announced, Dead Confederate will return with their sophomore album, Sugar, on August 24th via TAO Recordings/Old Flame.  Sugar was recorded by John Agnello (The Hold Steady, Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr.) and as Dead Confederate's Hardy Morris (guitar/lead vocals) explains, "We're a loud, big-sounding band, and wanted the album to be fun and creative - instead of just recording the songs.  It's not like we decided we couldn't have anything grungy or heavy; that's just not all that we're interested in.  You can listen to the record a bunch of different ways.  What we were doing felt right." 
There has been tons of excitement bubbling around the new album, which makes us even happier to share some in-studio footage and brand new music!

Dead Confederate is also sharing new music in exchange for an email address.  "Giving It All Away" (featuring J. Mascis, of Dinosaur Jr.)
