Deadline - Street-Punk de primeira qualidade directamente de Londres!

Pela primeira vez em Portugal, os Deadline são uma das bandas de top do Punk inglês da actualidade. Com discos editados na New Blood, Captain Oi! e People Like You, nada melhor do que transcrevermos a biografia oficial dos Deadline que consta no site da sua editora actual, a germânica People Like You. A vocalista Liz Rose é a grande figura da banda com a sua voz melódica e enérgica que não deixa ninguém indiferente.

"People Like You Records are proud to present DEADLINE which features what are probably the best female vocals to be found in Punk Rock Period! It’s hard to find a rival to Liz’s powerfully warm, spine-tingling vocal lines…. Multi layered harmonies, melodies to die for and one hit after another. This is the real deal!DEADLINE exploded onto the London Punk scene in 2001 and haven’t looked back since.

They played their first gig less than 4 years ago… Yet so much has happened since!With 4 European tours, 1 American tour, countless UK gigs, 2 full length albums released worldwide, 2 singles, 2 split albums and numerous contributions to various compilations under their belt, they are probably the hardest working band in the scene right now and have achieved more in a few years than a lot of bands do in a lifetime.

Their previous albums have received rave reviews from both underground fanzines and more “mainstream” magazines in the UK, Europe and even the USA.DEADLINE are an experienced live act and they have gained a reputation for their excellent live performances!

They have played from small pub backrooms to crowds of thousands, from New York to Pragues, from Marseilles to Berlin, they know the roads like the back of their hands and have gained an established following.

DEADLINE have been invited to play with some bigger names on the scene including RANCID, LARS FREDERIKSEN, DROPKICK MURPHYS & THE DISTILLERS to name but a few and swelling numbers at their own headline shows proves they were a hit!

DEADLINE sold out the GARAGE – London Highbury - for their new album launch party on February 12th 2005.To quote Tim Brooks from Maximum R’n’R, DEADLINE “reminded me of when I first heard Punk Rock and my life changed forever”. Make sure you catch’em live when they play a town near you in 2006"
