Tennessee rockers, The Nearly Deads made their way to Minnesota for the first time in their career. While out on The Electric Angel Tour with Valora, the five piece took the stage at The Park in Fridley, Minnesota last Thursday night. Like a bursting bomb, the atmosphere produced by the band's energetic stage presence was explosive as they played to the small bar and grill audience.
With an album currently in the works and a brand new edgy music video recently released, The Nearly Deads have much to be excited about for the future as they ready their following for new music and a return to their rock and roll roots. We spoke to the band after their set about touring and the upcoming EP, read the full interview below!
Shannon Rae: How is the Electric Angels Tour treating you all so far?
Javier: Amazing! I love Valora so much. They’re just like the most amazing band in the world and they rock!
Josh: Oh yeah, it’s great. They are a great group of people and we’ve had a lot of fun with them. I’m excited to continue on for the next couple of weeks.
Stephen: I have been having a great time. We’ve managed to make it out to some areas that we’ve never been before, the Dakotas, Iowa, Nebraska. It’s been really great seeing fans turn out in places that we have never been, it’s nice.
Kevin: Yeah, I have to second going to places we haven’t played before, I love that! Meeting new people, seeing new parts of the country. I mean we’ve driven through these states, but we haven’t actually played them yet and we’ve had fans telling us to come out and now we finally got the opportunity, so we are excited. And Valora is awesome too!
TJ: Yeah, I guess I’m kinda reiterating everyone else. We are very happy, lots of good vibes! Valora is awesome, it’s really great to be out on a tour with such amazing female vocalists as well so, it’s nice having some other chicks around.
SR: So what do you enjoy most about being on the road? And what do you miss most while out on tour?
