Many know who Frank Turner is, the Folk-Punk phenomenon has taken the world by storm. Before he was Frank Turner of Punk/Metal Giants Epitaph Records, he was Frank Turner of Million Dead.
Million Dead were a very short lived Post-Hardcore/ Art Punk/ Hardcore Punk band that released some quality songs that still aren’t available on American Itunes! But check out their discography especially if you like Frank Turner, and don’t let the “Hardcore” scare you off. The music is very very lyrical and the vocals at times sound like he is singing poetry. It’s a great band and “Tonight Matthew” is song of the day because quite frankly its my favorite song from the quartet.
“Tonight Matthew” sounds like artsy hardcore poetry, if there is such a thing. It’s brilliant, tasteful and catchy. Million Dead had poor relatioships within the band and Frank Turner can be quoted as saying that while touring they pretty much hated each other. To bad, because Million Dead made some quality tracks. The band only lasted a couple years and Frank Turner moved on to his far more prolific career as a alternative singer songwriting god. LONG LIVE FRANK TURNER!
