'Wake Up' by Dead Reynolds

'Wake Up' by Dead Reynolds

The band hail from East Anglia and mix alt rock, indie rock and pop punk with anthemic melodies and unexpected twists.  They formed in Oct 2018, through the local music scene and have picked up long-standing support from Kerrang! Radio, Rock Sound Mag, Powerplay Magazine, and critical acclaim from Louder/ Classic Rock, plus Amazing Radio and BBC Introducing.

Recent releases tackle real issues and include mental health, addiction, and loss that people are identifying with.

A change in singing duties took place in June 2022 when they welcomed Rossco to the band, and with that brought a new direction and their previous single “Fly Away” had over 1300 global radio plays and counting!

In September 2022, they were proud to win Single of the Year for ‘Uninspired’ at the New Music Generator Awards.

The new single, Wake Up covers addiction and features a close family member in the video, and is released on Feb 25th.  UK tour dates in April and the release of a new EP follow in Spring 2023.
