Brand new Thai idolcore band Deadkat have released their debut singles ‘Deadkat’ and ‘It’s Never Too Late’. Blackat Records sent us the following information regarding the formation of this band:
“DEADKAT, the first “IDOL” artist on Blackat Records, was born from an IDOLCORE audition program directed by BananaMaxTV. The line-up consists of five members: KEW-WAN (Nattanich Viroonwachira), YOKO (Bussakorn Amponpelapan), PUNCH (Pivara Danviriyagul), MAEMI (Phichaya Kinggate) and NANA (Ploysuey Luebangyai). After having trained in singing and dancing, all five members are now ready to have their own recordings, from which two singles will be released.
DEADKAT — the song which shares its name with the band’s title — and It’s Never Too Late, are the band’s debut singles, being presented in an intense metalcore style while bringing up addictive melodies, modern sounds, and various singing styles. The lyrics are also being passed on in three languages! The songs convey the stories of lives in the “IDOL” industry all five members have been through and will be facing in the future.
The name “DEADKAT” came from the five members having experiences of being an idol from each of their former bands. Although they were meant to be parted or their respective bands were disbanded, the dream of each member did not just end once and for all. They are now grouped together and reborn in order to carry on their dreams of becoming an idol, who passes on happiness and inspiration to their fans and audience. Although idols basically are lovely and lively just like cats, these members are the cats with nine lives. It does not matter how many times they have to be reborn; they will still move forward and carry one, making their dream come true. This is the origin of the name “DEADKAT,” the band that features aggressive, heavy musical components (rock/metal) and idol-like cuteness and liveliness (cats).
