We woke up this morning to a whole bunch of funny shit that Japanese people watching the Olympics opening event. Super funny hilarious shit to show how they support Taiwan and Hong Kong! MAD LOVE TO Y’ALL.
On that note, it makes sense to announce to the world that Taiwanese hardcore band Deadpan, who’ve been missing in action for a number of years, is back. And they’re back HARD. At midnight last night, the band surprise dropped the first taste of new music with the massive song entitled ‘Me Against Myself and I’. We’ve already listened to it like 10 times on repeat. The first 9 times are jaw was on the floor and so weren’t processing any of the magic we were listening to – were sitting there in complete awe. The next 100 times we’ll listen to it today we’ll make sure to analyze the fuck outta this.
Guitarist Scott was kind enough to give us the low-down:
“So we’re putting out one of our new songs from our upcoming album promo. The track is called ‘Me Against Myself And I’, to pay tribute to two of the most iconic bands from two of my favorite genres which influenced me the most – Bad Brains (I Against I) and De La Soul (Me, Myself And I).”
Yo…that’s so SICK.
“This song only tells one story – the love you need to have for yourself. It’s such a simple idea but so challenging – spending the time you need to discover what you truly want and revel in that decision. In the end, you’re the one who truly matters.”
We noticed that your press photo you sent us only has 2 members – your vocalist and yourself?
“Actually, that’s been the lineup forever hahahahaha…if anyone plays drums or the bass and is into more groove-laden hardcore, his us up!”
Go listen to the new track and fall in love with the band like we did YEARS ago when we first heard their debut release (streaming further below).
