DEAD ORIGINAL Release their next single/video "Blasted" from the forthcoming album 'Bought and Sold' with TLG Entertainment and INgrooves. "Blasted" follows the previous releases "Bought and Sold", "Let It Burn", and "Restrained" from the up and coming album due February 26th of this year.

This is a solid work to be employed and valued in your collection. Check out "Blasted" and get ready for Dead Original's album release coming soon!

"Let It Burn" - "The song’s musical arrangement features a reserved, almost contemplative sense through its mid-tempo approach and down-tuned guitars and bass." - Phils Picks

"Bought and Sold" - "A song that sounds something like Bush with double bass pedals (the drumming to me is the highlight of this grungy track), guitars and vocals scream angst and longing for four minutes and 27 seconds." - Prism Reviews


"'Blasted' is kind of a self-reflection song like when you go outside and stare at the sky and think to yourself, 'You know, things might be all right.'"

~ Paul Wandtke

An interesting side note bassist Mike Petrasek said that some of their fans were concerned about the making of their studio videos. Petrasek reassures the fans, "We're grateful our fans were concerned for our safety. We actually shot these eight songs in one day, going with a 'less is more' video shoot simply because of COVID restrictions, and also because we're a rock band - less is always more."
