Featured Artist: The Dead Exs

Two-piece bands may be as common these days as tight pants on a hipster, but the Dead Exs don’t just stand apart from most other rock duos – they stand on the shoulders of them. New Yorkers David Pattillo (guitar/vocals) and Wylie Wirth (drums) start with a tried-and-true southern blues template and amp it up to 11 with recklessly shuffling rhythms, scorching slide guitar, and cocksure vocals that range from wailing to guttural. The Dead Exs clearly aren’t for the faint of heart…but we can’t get enough!

Look for the duo’s new live-in-the-studio album, Resurrection, in the iTunes store and at Bang Bang Boogaloo Records’ website, and don’t miss their song “Come Down Easy” in the “Summer Camp, Mt. Hood” episode of our Cinematic Video Series!
