Dead Rock West has just been confirmed on a national summer tour kicking off on June 15th in Portland, Oregon with indie rock god John Doe. The band will be performing double duty, opening the set as Dead Rock West in support of their new, critically acclaimed debut album Honey and Salt, as well as sitting in with Doe as his back up band. The tour will continue across the US in a 35-city tour ending in mid August 2007.
Dead Rock West's sound has been described as "the jagged edge of country rock that brought such acclaim to Los Angeles legends X in the '80s," by the Houston Chronicle. Campus Circle calls it the "true evocative sound where John Doe and Exene Cervenka from X meet Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris." What better way to compliment these comparisons than for Dead Rock West to team up with the renowned X front man!
Dead Rock West's debut album Honey and Salt is a seamless mix of high-powered punk rock, the perfectly pitched harmonies of Americana, grainy guitar solos, thoughtful lyrics, and blends of energetic pop.
Dead Rock West is - lead singer Cindy Wasserman, lead guitarist/vocalist Frank Lee Drennen, bass player David J. Carpenter (Grant Lee Phillips, John Doe), drummer Bryan Head (The Plimsouls, Abandoned Pools) and multi-instrumentalist Phil Parlapiano (Social Distortion, Lucinda Williams).
