Following their much acclaimed, third album Never Say Die (2018), Melbourne-based hard rock act DEAD CITY RUINS has premiered a music video for the high voltage, new single “Preacher“!
Formed in 2010, the Australians sold their belongings and went all-in when it comes to rock ‘n’ roll. Tirelessly touring the planet, the band has managed to capture the hearts of its audience gig by gig – much like Rival Sons, Monster Truck, and similar trailblazers of their generation have. They also share a list of influences with these acts, namely Deep Purple, Guns N’ Roses, Zeppelin. Their goal: bring rock ‘n’ roll back to the people!
“Preacher” may not only be a promising harbinger of an upcoming, new album to follow in the hopefully not so distant future with AFM Records, but also introduces new vocalist Steve Welsh! Before joining DEAD CITY RUINS, Welsh was mostly active on YouTube, where he dedicated himself to imitating a plethora of singers. There’s one clip of him singing the twelve songs from Alice In Chains’ “Dirt” in twelve different styles; ranging from James Hetfield to Ronnie James Dio.
“Preacher is the first song we wrote together after re-grouping from three months touring Australia and Europe,” the band comments. “New blood, new riffs and new power! Crack a beer and crank it up!”
