12 April. 2008 "THE DEAD ARE DEAD" is coming to your stores and The Dead are in hospital
The dead have a smiling and a crying skeleton eye at the moment: the smiling one because of our sweet CD that is coming to the stores step by step. In Berne Jecklin and Stauffacher even made a cute place with posters and everything to present our little baby - and that makes us happy! On the crying side our drummer Tommy is in the Hospital at the moment getting his old bones and organs renewed - so we won't play for quite some time together, but at the 30. May we will be back again at the Rock in Thun as dead as we are. In the meantime our CD will be send to all the fanzines and we hope for some good feedback - it started fantastic with the review in Bund and the big ad in the Berner Zeitung for the release show - and also in the daily mags 20min, News, Ensuite and the CD of the week nomination in little Bärner Bär. Thanks to you all!
24. March 2008 OSTERMESSEPLATTENTAUFE - THE DEAD ARE DEAD - THANK YOU ALL
Hey you out there - thank you all for coming to our Record Release Party at ISC! It was dead fun and the venue was sold out in only 45 minutes! Sorry for everybody who had to wait outside. We were surprised that the tickets went away so quickly and were happy as a bunch of dead monkeys that the party was so much dead fun. Thanks a lot to everybody who helped to make it rule the way it did - especially great SUPERSEXFLY and KID WILD, the superb DJs (TOM and DIES - thanks for helping us out), Urs and everybody else from ISC, Jürg and Nick of Chop Records, Adi the Guitar, Passive Attack, Sämi, Domo Sharp Eye, Tinu el Zwergli, Pädi, Jared and the far away Gimp, Mürgu, our loving Love Angles and everybody else who helped in the one or the other way and of course all you living out there who were a-dancing, a-drinking and celebrating all night long with us. We really enjoyed it! Here you get to the PICTURES of that bif dead fun evening.
Best greetings from down under, The Dead

24. June 2007 page dead
Hey living, sorry for the page being dead for some days. Now everything is working again in deadlands and the page is up and running like a new born! Except for a few messages in the graveyard that turned into dust. Also in our dead live were a few problems but now we are all dead healthy again and ready to rock. We still work on the new songs which we will record this very year- yeah!! So stay tuned and have fun! The Dead
1. April 2007 Settled
After 3 months of writing new dead driven dead songs down in our very crypt in Berne, we're back in the bloody world of the living. We will go for a little weekendhelltour to Germany, where we'll play at some very nice venues: at the fabulous well known Wild at Heart Club in Berlin, the Bunker in Chemnitz (the bigger Club of the same owners from Subway to Peters were we played two years ago on our helleurope-tour through CH, D and CZ) and at the first movie theatre in Germany - the famous UT Connewitz in Leipzig! Thank you a million dead times Dannyramon! On this expended weekend tour we will support the naughty "Thee Merry Widows" (psychotic snake dance female schizzobilly from California) and in Chemnitz we will play with PVC - the first German Punk Band ever (founded 1977 years after Jesus). And the other thing we love to look forward to is our gig the following month at very nice Muehle Hunziken together with the wild tequila desert rockers The Toenails, which complete our skeleton bodies very well. It will be stonerrock to zombierock. Hope to see you at the one or other gig!
19. Mars 2007 Changes
After going one and the other way we had to change a few gig dates. We canceled the gig with The Monsters in NL because it's too much of a drive for one gig up there in the north and the gig at Sous Soul (Bern) changed to May but we may also play in Dead End that month - so we are not sure at the moment which gig we're gonna play. Hope to see you at the one or the other, the dead
13. February 2007 BRAND NEW YEAR
26. November 2006 2006 TURNS DEAD
2006 turns stone cold dead and it was a year with a lot of fun for us! We had good support from our record label 808 records of leech records and our CD was world wide promoted by Crazy Love Records from Germany. We had the chance to play a lot of gigs, met many fantastic living and drunk more liquor than in any other year of our dead existence. At the moment the band has some time off because some members take their time for vacations to travel the world. But we will be back in dead 2007. This time for mortal eyes only with a dirty little hell driven video clip of the song "Miss Slovakia" with Luc Balmer on the fiddle made by ADI of The Super Sex Flies. It will give you a smelly look inside our messy crypt six feet under and it will be 180% pure trash from beneath. And then there is another fun thing for 2007: we plan a tour for spring trough France and Spain: VIVA Senoritas! And we hope for a lot of other dead fun in the rotten new year! Until then you can listen to us at DJ Leos radio show, where we've played this very November live on the air!

04. Dezember 2005 RELEASE PARTY CHRISTMAS CONCERT PLATTENTAUFE
Hey living, the trees are bare, the stones are cold and The Dead are around the house again. In the last few weeks we were busy preparing our new Album Ã‚Â“Take you homeÃ‚Â” that will be released at the beginning of the new year and we had the first gig with our new label mates Nguru in Grabenhalle in St. Galllen which was big fun! We are very happy to be on Benos 808 Records and are looking forward to present you our new dead born baby at our great terrifying and helloucious PLATTENTAUFE at Dachstock Reithalle in Bern where the Album will be available to mortals for the very first time at the 23.12.2005! There will be many friends joining us and all the dark gone creatures of the night and hell bounders will reunion!! WeÃ‚Â’re as happy as dead can be to also present you that night the furious 70s glamour trash transladies The Gutter Queens, the wild speed punk combo The Moped Lads and dead shaking garage n roll dead dance beat disco with Dannyramone (from Fuckadies, Unhold and Subversiv Records) and the very Gimp himself!! ItÃ‚Â’s a devilish snake dance party; be there Ã‚Â– and drink Christmas dead!
11. October 2005 Take you home - CD RELEASE
Ay living, everything's coming back home again Ã‚Â– this time with our brand new CD Ã‚Â“take you homeÃ‚Â” that will be released in December. More details to the opening party will follow. The CD contains 15 dead hot songs that were recorded with Admiral James T. last Christmas at the Dala Studios. With the new CD there are also new cards, shirts, posters and more to come. The record will be released on 808 records of leech redda in cooperation with Crazy Love Records in Germany for worlwide distribution. Thanks a lot to Beno and Guido for everything Ã‚Â– weÃ‚Â’re as happy as dead can be!
18. September 2005 Summer dead
Summer is getting over now and we had some nice gigs like at the Spiezer LÃƒÂ¤rmtage, the Rock in Thun, Defcon at SchÃƒÂ¼ÃƒÂ¼r and our gig close to Brussels in Belgium in a big old church at the Ã‚Â“make trouble at the chappel festivalÃ‚Â”! This was by the way the first gig we've got paid for some flight tickets to get there Ã‚Â– felt good! And in September we'd have opened up for Transplantation (a project of Rancid and Blink 181) at Abart in ZÃƒÂ¼rich - but unfortunately the gig was cancelled due to illness, death and disease.
19. July 2005 Dead Shirts On The Air
We were happy to see the female TV moderator of the Gurten Festival wearing our Fiesta de los Muertos T-shirt. Now the interviewed Chemical Brothers know how a good shirt must look. Also a big thanks to Elif who wore the classis dead shirt on her VIVA show. Thanks to you all!
17. July 2005 Red Hot Dead Album Finished
Now our red hot brand new mind splitting tombstone cracking alboum is mastered and finished!! Our big thanks goes out to Admiral James T. who surfs the galaxy. He did a real great job and we are very happy that weÃ‚Â’ve recorded our songs with him. Also to mention that he's a quite a folksy contemporary, sometimes a bit lazy but never the less a proud captain of his great Dala Studios, where you find everything you need Ã‚Â– from very rare records, mics, wrecked up machines and many other things most living havenÃ‚Â’t seen yet. On the new album weÃ‚Â’ve tried to bring all the different styles of music together that we like and Admiral knew the ways to make them sound right. So you find 50like rock n roll, psycho rock, garage, country, trash and hard rock elements, as well as some gipsy fiddle and space out Theremin actions in this 15 deadly soul banding tunes that will be released this very fall!! But first we're looking forward for the up comming gigs Ã‚Â– refreshed and new to the bone after some red hot and long needed vacations! So long and rest in peace, The Dead

20. June 2005 New pig gig pics online
The longest day ahead - time to creep down deep into the hole. And belife it or not we've even put the last pig gigs online in our memorial. Go and enjoy The Dead in heat.
11. June 2005 Time is lagging and the GUESTBOOK is broken
It is a very drag at the moment. The 17 songs we've recorded are still in Admirals Dala Studios and he can't do any work at the moment. Maybe we'll get the songs some time later...And the other bad news are about our GUESTBOOK that doesn't work no more - so you better don't add anything, it won't appear. But time will come for both matters to unravel.
20. May 2005 Gig cancelled
Because the great Güterschuppe (an deadly biker club in Zürich) had some attention throuh an article in the newspaper, the STAPO Zürich intervened. Now the Güterschuppen can't make any concerts any more. Hopefully this will change in the future and that boiling spot can start to rock again!
16. May 2005 Luc playes the fiddle
After a few hours of sleep we went to Admiral James T today to record the last thing on our up coming record! Luc (from Jimmy Hofer Band and many other rock, country and classic projects) played a dead cool dirt driven rock blues fiddle on "Miss Slovakia" and "She's Dead". Thanks a lot! Unfortunately Admiral James T's computer broke down and the whole mixing will take some more time again. It seems like a never ending story, but time will come for our baby to be born - some day!
09. May 2005 The Dead Can Dance
Hey everybody, we've almost finished our mixing! Next thing in line is the big rattle n snake mastering and in fall you can pick that hoodoo piece up. Thanks to our ex-trecky Admiral James T it has become a real wild child of psycho garage jungle pop! With hard rock, punk and country elements as well and a surf song where Admiral plays a simple old fashioned Teremin. Until that deadly brew is ready to serve you can already watch the Dead dance now HERE (avi 34mb) or mov 6mb! And thanks for visiting our page - in April there was an average of 55 and peaks of over 100 hits a day! See you in hell!
08. April 2005 Two Brand New Dead Beat Appetizers
Hey sinister boys and wicked girls, we've posted two of our new songs at this page. The songs are still raw, unmastered and at their rough mix state. But still (or maybe especially now) you can hear the deadly note. The full record will be out in fall. Unfortunately it takes a very long time to get appointments with admiral james t to mix the recorded material. So you and we still have to wait some time until the whole record will be ready for the grave. But time will come. To give you a little tast of our sweet new baby you have in the Dead Stuff section the first and unique chance to check the two rumblinig red hot dead heart braking songs "Wild" and "Paradise No. 7" out! Enjoy your time living!

15. February 2005 Rock City Morgue Tour Over
We had two deadly concerts together with fabulous Rock City Morgue. Especially the one in the ISC was big fun for us! It's been a long time since we've played in our home town the last time. Unfortunately the third gig with Rock City Morgue didn't work out because the band had to quite their Euro tour cause of some personal matters. They had to go back to New Orleans and had to cancel the following gigs inclusive the one together with us at the Tap Tab in Schaffhausen. We wish the creepy – great horror rocking - Morgues all the best for their future and are looking forward to see them again somewhere sometime. C u and rock on!!
