The Dead Ships

The Dead Ships
May 20, 2016 Jeff Sperber

A lot has happened for The Dead Ships in the short time that they’ve been together.  They quickly became the most talked-about live show in L.A., picked up airplay on radio giant KROQ where their song “Big Quiet” spent five weeks in the number one slot on the station’s star-making Locals Only show.  The Ships were hand-picked by Goldenvoice to perform at Coachella 2016  and LA WEEKLY named them the city’s best band. 

Now, with the release of their debut full-length album, it’s time for the rest of the world to get to know The Dead Ships. Produced by Broken Social Scene’s Brendan Canning, the soulful garage rock four-piece has put together a fiery collection of songs that showcase McCluskey’s engaging yowl and an unrelenting drive that never lets up on the gas pedal.
