Born/Dead: Southeast Asian Tour 2007! Postponed
note: TENTATIVE DATES & SCHEDULE BELOW…
from wikipedia: “Born/Dead formed in late 2000 in Oakland, California consisting of Bill Jackson playing drums, Wyatt Culbertson ( both formerly of the Chemical Imbalance) playing bass and splitting vocal duties with guitarist Will Kinser.
Will had been a member of the short-lived Santa Cruz, California band No Options. No Options had broken up suddenly upon the death of member Chad W. Rickley of an asthma attack earlier that year. All of Born/Dead’s records have been dedicated to his memory and they still play No Options songs in their live set.
Born/Dead’s style of DIY punk is influenced by hardcore punk, peace punk and some crust punk. They sound similar to Aus Rotten, Econochrist and Tragedy.
In 2001, after playing extensively in the San Francisco Bay Area, the band released their debut five song 7″ EP “24 Hostages” as the first release by No Options Records, a label started by Will. After recording the initial tracks for a full-length album themselves, the band approached the long-running and successful Bay Area label, Prank Records to release the record.
The nine song “Our Darkest Fears Now Haunt Us” LP/CD was released in 2003 and featured a heavier sound than the debut. The LP’s release lead the band to its first major U.S. tour and was quickly followed by a recording session at Burnt Ramen studios produced by Nate Smith and Greg Wilkinson of Brainoil, these songs where released on a split LP with Seattle’s Consume released on German label Yellowdog Records. This was followed closly by a 5 week tour of Europe with Consume.
In 2004, original drummer Bill Jackson left the band to concentrate on his other group Strung Up and was replaced by Josh Carman. The band prepared new material and in 2005 returned with a limited edition five song 12″ EP which they sold on a series of tours in the United States and Europe.
This new material was more experimental than previous releases and some songs were re-released on a 7″ EP on Prank Records. In 2006, the band toured the west coast with The Subhumans and World Inferno Friendship Society. They also recently released a split 7″ EP on Tankcrimes records with San Francisco’s Peligro Social. Will is also involved in No Options Records.”
