Grand Rites received unanimous praise and saw the band reaching new heights with European tours this fall and winter, including appearances at Dessertfest Belgium and Into the Void festivals as well as direct support for John Garcia’s (Kyuss) 5-week European tour in early 2019. With the release of Grand Rites, Dead Quiet hope to continue traversing the globe, playing what has become well known as an ultra-energetic, charismatic and ear-splitting live performance.
Kevin Keegan comments about their first European tour coming up “After hundreds of emails and many false starts we finally finished booking our first European tour! We are looking forward to meeting everyone who helped put this together and play some killer gigs along the way. See you in October!”
With influences ranging from doom metal to classic rock, Dead Quiet seeks to meld melody with catastrophe as they weave through a dissonant landscape of crushing metallic riffs and somber choral musings. While remaining loyal to crucial heavy metal foundations, the band is successful at pronouncing that heaviness with depth and honesty.
Formed in the winter of 2013, Dead Quiet was created from the ashes of singer/guitarist Kevin Keegan’s since dismantled band, Barn Burner (Metal Blade). Keegan’s songs were brought to the experienced hands of Vancouver musicians, Jason Dana (Bend Sinister, Karen Foster), Brock Macinnis (Anciients, Tobeatic), Willow Gamberg and Mike Grossnickle (Hashteroid).
