Thanks London & Paris

We had a total blast at out shows with WEEDEATER and KING PARROT at the Underworld (London) and Glazart (Paris). We played entirely material from our upcoming album which is scheduled for release this summer. The kind folks at TeamRock had this to say concerning our Underworld set.:

"Londoners Dead Existence... Miserable doomsters, they use the time to showcase songs from their upcoming album. This is breathtaking in its power, taking very early Saint Vitus a stage further. The music is compelling and hypnotic, and leaves you in their thrall. When frontman Jake abandons his microphone to shout at the crowd during one particularly crushing instrumental phase, the moment is captivating."

An excellent set of shots by the awesomely talented photographer Jessica Lotti can be found here:

Skyhammer / Upcoming D.E. Shows for spring 2014

The Dead Existence winter hiatus officially came to an end last weekend with with 2 cracking shows at Hammerfest VI in Wales and Bill's Birthday Bash at Scruffy's in Birmingham, killer way to start the year so cheers to all those involved.
A great (if not somewhat amusing in places) review of our Hammerfest set can be found via this link:

What may not be so apparent to most folks is that during the slumber we have been secretly conjuring and planning things for 2014/15, this included a covert run up to the mighty Conan's Skyhammer studio near Liverpool to cut a handful of tracks with the awesome Chris Fielding. We hope to have these tracks out via various releases before the end of this year, more details to come so stay tuned.

In the meantime we have a string of UK dates spanning the months between now and summer, at which we will be previewing some of said new material.  The dates include an appearance at London's DesertFest which this year boasts an absolutely killer lineup! Here are the shows in full..
