Dead Rites New EP Obscure! Pre-order link. Album release date 11/09/2018

Hello my friends!


This just in…..

Come and see us at our pre-tour show this coming Sept 5!


On November 9th we release Obscure



With a cover from the very talented Elaine McMahon the album was originally a single and ended up being an EP. A new recording of Midnight with three new original songs and an Alice Cooper Cover!

The EP was engineered and produced by Andy Reilley who worked with Iron Maiden during the Brave New World recordings and with Bruce Dickinson during accident of Birth and on Moonspell’s Butterfly Effect. So I am assuming that we are in good company.


Where can you get your copy of this awesome release? Well I am glad that you asked!!




You can get the album and some combos in there including the all inclusive everything package where you get everything that we have on the page. You can preorder the CD, hoodies, shirts and more on that page, now most of these items we will be making depending on demand.


Speaking of Demand, the vinyl release will be pushed back to May 2019, depending on how many more people ask for them….

If you live in the Atlanta area or are able to travel you can get a CD and a ticket for our CD release show and pick that up at our Atlanta show on 11/10/2018.

We are extremely excited about this release and we cannot wait to play you these songs


Track List:

  1. I dream of the Crows
  2. Obedience
  3. Ab Imo Pectore
  4. Midnight
  5. Roses on White Lace (Alice Cooper Cover)

See you all on the road


Headed to the studio next week and 4th of July sale

Hello guys we are headed to the studio again next week to continue laying down tracks the drums are done, guitars will be next.


While we are searching for a bass player I want to take the time and thank Josh from the amazing band Prime Mover who is recording the bass tracks for us for this new album. One of the most amazing bass players that we know out there.


If you need some sweet Dead Rites merch we have a sale happening next July 4th weekend. Shirts will be on sale once we are done doing a count of what we have so make sure you take a look and see what Dead Rites shirts you are missing for that one week you will be able to get some awesome prices for some of our merch before we gather some new one for the fall tour.

Just a quick update


We are currently working on our yet untitled EP, but we wanted to show up and leave you guys some love. Shows will not be happening until the end of the year but we are looking at taking a small break in the summer to play a Benefit Show in Alabama if that comes through.

In the meantime, Paul is doing shows with Priest of the Iron Ryche, Izz is working on new music with Bludy Gyres, and our stand in bass player Zack Johnson just released some new music on Spotify.


Radu is actually working on a podcast with his friend Billy Pharaoh and you can listen to them on www.soundlcoud.com/theritualpodcast.


In the meantime here are two songs we did not write from the last show which was a lovely special show.


See you on the road
