The Dead South Tour 'Illusion and Doubt'
Harkening back to an era where country was more about punch-in-the-guts emotions and authentic performances than auto-tune and fist-pumping party anthems, The Dead South are often described as outlaws for their fearless return to a simpler time, blending bluegrass and folk with the energy of a DIY punk band. As compelling on stage as they are on record, the rock-stomping Canadian quintet hits the road on the 'Voices In Your Head Tour', fresh off the back of the 2018 Juno Award-winning release of their third studio album 'Illusion and Doubt'.
Exploring themes of love, life, death and all the cheating, drinking and boozing in between, The Dead South pulls no punches in their latest gutsy offering. Guitars, cello, banjo, mandolin and soaring vocal harmonies collide, translating to a wild live fusion of acoustic and electric that elicits much whooping and hollering from both performers on stage and their audience. It's nigh impossible not to tap your feet to the band's uptempo, uplifting songs, let alone sing along at the top of your lungs - wear comfortable shoes because revelrous dancing is part and parcel at a Dead South gig.
