The Dead South are back with not one but TWO brand new EPs in the form of Easy Listening for Jerks, Parts I & II. The first is a collection of bluegrass songs that reimagine cheery classic tunes, such as “You Are My Sunshine,” out Oct 8, with a dark and desperate tone. The latter is a set of modern rock anthems. While vastly different in origin, each EP bears the watermark of the iconic Dead South sound and together they form a crash course in the band’s musical influences.
Stay tuned for “You Are My Sunshine” on Friday, and in the meantime check out the Twin Twangler Tour to see if The Dead South are heading to your town in 2022.
