Electrifying alternative rock/punk pop outﬁt The Nearly Deads are primed and poised for stardom.
Originally formed in Tampa, Florida before relocating to the music mecca of Nashville three years ago, The Nearly
Deads emit polished grit. Led by the gripping vocal embrace of Ms Theresa Jeane ( TJ), her classical training is evident in the power and range of her voice. Her pop and punk inﬂuences shine through in her lyrics and captivating melodies.
Matching her emotional countenance with a potent combination of agility and sensibility, guitarists Steven Tobi and Javier
Garza, along with bassist Kevin Koelsch and drummer Josh Perrone, layer her fertility with a sturdy cloak of conductivity.
Imagine Kelly Clarkson ﬂicking the wick of My Chemical Romance. Imagine Shirley Manson holding Foo Fighters ransom.
Imagine dragons, smashing pumpkins.
Imagine resplendent circuitry, wired melliﬂuously.
Evidence of The Nearly Deads lightning-in-a-bottle phenomena coalesce in the band's watershed anthem, "Never Look
Back". Armed with a Zombie-infused music video that skyrocketed past 6.2 million views, NLB ﬁnds TND scratching the
surface of a sound and a movement that is dilating eyes on the horizon.
Let your mind soak in the burgeoning realization of new found glory.
On Survival Guide, the band's most-recent six-song Ep, producer Jon King (Augustana, 3 Pill Morning, Darling
Parade) helped guide the band to fully unleash their immersive cohesion. Ingesting the elegant dynamics of 'Fact
and Friction, ' the fragile invincibility of "Changeover," the raw rancor of "Reasons," and the intoxicating empowerment of
"Brave," one quickly realizes that The Nearly Deads are modern masters of the ascension of tension, coloring their palette
with elastic splashes. With a deft adeptness of effervescence, their songs elicit bristle with an irresistible sizzle.
Wunderkind King is back at the helm for the groupʼs debut album Invisible Tonight, which is being self-released with a
crowdfunding assist from the bandʼs fervent fan base known as Zombie Nation. Three of the songs from Survival Guide
('Brave' 'Changeover' and a stripped-down 'Reanimated' rendition of 'Never Look Back') make the leap to the full-length
to perch themselves alongside the ﬁst-pumping anthems "Paper Doll," and 'You Got Me,' the soaring ballad "In The
Morning," and the climatic title track whose sentiments are the album's emotional core.
TJ explains Invisible Tonight:
"We are very proud of this album. We have been through a lot of changes as a band over the past
year, and at some points I found myself just wanting to give up. I felt like people wanted me to be invisible, and that my
voice wasn't being heard. Instead of letting it break me down, I turned that experience into something positive with the
lyrics for 'Invisible Tonight'. I'm declaring in front of everybody - this is hard, I don't know if I have what it takes to do this
sometimes, but that's ok. It's something you have to conquer in order to be successful. The concept for the artwork
conveys that feeling of being anonymous."
Elsewhere, 'Easy Way Out,' churns an infectious syncopated rhythm of disposition, 'Point of No Return' wears punk
rock vigor on its sleeve and 'Our Last Adventure' scales a glorious glacier of reverential reﬂection.
Invisible Tonight's ﬁrst taste was served up on April 8th as the album's lead single "I Said" made its rip-roaring debut, instantly
creating a stir on social media and quickly asserting itself as both a fan favorite and a critical darling. Stacked with
emotional strength and brimming with conﬁdent self-awareness, PureVolume anointed it "a deﬁant piano-driven anthem".
Miss Jeane recalls the song's genesis from seven years ago: "'I Said' is a song I wrote when I was still sleeping in my van
every night. This song goes way back for me. I wrote it at a time where I was fed up with being held back by guys I was
dating, and I realized that I was strong enough to go it alone. I used to play this song in my old Tampa, FL band, Blondes
Not Bombs. I was listening to a lot of Something Corporate at the time. When I combined forces with The Nearly Deads,
this was one of the songs we had to make our own."
Make it their own they did as the band's chemistry fuels their consummate musical combustion. Touring the U.S. extensively for years, The Nearly Deads have shared bills with the likes of Halestorm, All-American
Rejects, Tonight Alive, Warner Drive, Man Overboard, Sick of Sarah, Cherri Bomb, Captain Capa, City Of The Weak,
Darling Parade, Kaleido, It Lives It Breathes and Stitched Up Heart and have cratered stages at Vans Warped Tour,
PrideFest, Summerfest, and Journey's Backyard BBQ.
From Studio to stage to the written page, TND has received widespread critical acclaim throughout the industry. Crowned victors in the 2012 John Lennon Songwriting Contest and the 2012 National Converse Battle of the Bands competition, the band has received significant airplay on MTVu, FUSE, BlankTV, Vevo,
and Youtube. TND achieved glowing features in Absolute Punk, Alt Press, Artist Direct, Outburn, PureVolume, Revolver, and Substream Magazine ' and rose to #14 on the Billboard Next Big Sound chart.
