Here’s the Dead Ending story: On tour in 2006, bomb guitarist Jeff Dean met and befriended Vic Bondi, the frontman of legendary Chicago punk heroes Articles Of Faith. They bonded over hyper aggressive 80’s bands and discussed the possibility of starting a band. When he got home, Jeff got busy and wrote some tunes, then recruited longtime friend, Alkaline Trio drummer Derek Grant to help him lay the tracks down in Million Yen Studios, where Jeff works as an engineer. Vic liked the songs and signed on. Joe Principe of Rise Against came aboard on bass soon after that, and BOOM! Dead Ending was born.

Dead Ending made their live debut at Punk Rock Bowling in Vegas in 2012. So get out your spiky belt and your safety pins and tell your dentist to go fuck himself because Dead Ending is gearing up to bring the chaotic hardcore of the 80’s to you today with a quickness that would make Doc Brown shit his pants. Consider yourselves warned!
