The Dead South Announce “Chains & Stakes” New Album Out February 9, 2024.



The Dead South reveal the details of their fourth studio album, Chains & Stakes, out February 9, 2024. The news comes in advance of their largest UK tour to date, which starts with what will be a sold out show at London’s Roundhouse (3,500 cap) on October 27, 2023.

The story of Chains & Stakes is the story of a band that has grown more adventurous and assured with each album. To make their new collection, they met Sugar & Joy producer Jimmy Nutt at Panoram Studios in Mexico City, where the team convened to record 13 songs full of plot twists, family trees, grudges, insurance scams, bacon, burials, banjo riffs and more. Chains & Stakes is truly a “Dead South” collection in the balance of darkness and levity that has come to define their unmistakable sound.

2023 has already brought notable successes, including the RIAA Certified Platinum status of “In Hell I’ll Be In Good Company” in the USA. With a recent sold-out debut at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium and upcoming headlining slots at Byron Bay Bluesfest (Australia) and WinterWonderGrass Steamboat Springs (Colorado, USA), The Dead South continue to make live music milestones on the world’s most celebrated stages.
