Founded in Seattle, WA by vocalist and songwriter John Maiello in 2013, Dead Bars had a very specific plan to play one show, record a demo, and tour only Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico. After four years of playing more shows, recording five seven-inch’s (including their latest release, a split with FEST vets The Tim Version) released on three different labels in three different countries, and never touring outside the continental United States, Dead Bars released their first LP titled Dream Gig (Produced by Eric Randall of TacocaT) in 2017. The album is OUT NOW via No Idea Records (Against Me!, Hot Water Music, Defiance Ohio, etc). Sometimes things don’t always go as planned, and sometimes you don’t get what you want. Keep on dreamin’.
