In support of the upcoming the release of their sophomore record Sugar, due on August 24th on TAO Recordings/Old Flame, Dead Confederate will be touring North America. The tour will see the band bringing their raucous show across the states through the summer and includes dates with Deer Tick as well as a Bumbershoot after party with Surfer Blood.
Sugar, recorded by John Agnello (Hold Steady, Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr.), was shaped by touring with legends such as Dinosaur Jr. and Meat Puppets and gave Dead Confederate an increased appreciation for the early underground bands of the 80s and 90s that laid the foundation on which their sound is built.
After wrapping up touring with Deer Tick, Dead Confederate will continue their tour into the fall, with dates to be announced soon.
