Dead Confederate by Jason Thrasher

AthFest Artist Spotlight: Dead Confederate

The Georgia Theatre will be rocking hard into the wee hours of the morning this AthFest with local favorites Dead Confederate playing a 12:45 AM set. Since 2006, Dead Confederate has been serving up a local brew of alternative, alt-country, grunge, and psych rock all over the country. The band, an old school five piece rock outfit, has toured extensively as headliners, with acts like REM and Dinosaur JR and on stages such as Bonnaroo, SXSW, and The Late Show With Conan O’Brien. They’ve consistently drawn positive comparisons to Nirvana and My Morning Jacket, while being celebrated for their uniquely sprawling Southern Gothic style.

Since their inception, Dead Confederate has released three EPs and three full length albums, the latest being 2013’s In The Marrow. Paste Magazine described the album as a “testament to how tortured souls often write the sweetest hooks” and praised the haunting quality of Hardy Morris‘s vocals. In their review, PopMatters described the album as evoking “the dark, murky swamps of the American South and all the doom they entail”. Since releasing In The Marrow, Dead Confederate has stayed busy playing festival and tour dates, as well as branching off into multiple solo/independent projects.

Check out the band performing “Guns” here:
