They’ve been on the underground circuit for a little while and released a few EP’s, but after gigs with the likes of New Year’s Day, Alien Ant Farm, as well as slots at Macmillan Festival and Teddy Rocks among others, they’re ready to take on the world.

What makes Eva Plays Dead unique though?  Well their consistant work ethic is always intruiging to see, from touring to working day jobs and back to recording, it’s quite clear music is something they breathe for. Also, they’ve just been in Cardiff, hopefully working on new material. What’s more is that their off on tour within the next month, showing that they’re comitted people who want to take their music to as many people as humanly possible. Who knows?, they might be playing this new material on their shows with Sumo Cyco and Devilskin.

Adding to this hard working ethic, this band has shown time and time again they won’t let the world get them down. Last year, they were the unfortunate victims of a robbery where most of their gear was stolen, £3,000 in fact but through a GoFundMe page, their fans as well as a donation from Doc Martens, they were able to help fund the money for new equipment. Now six months later, they are gearing up for another tour.

Their last EP ‘Sounds of The Written Word’ featured some of the best sounding tracks form a lesser known band I’ve heard in a while. In fact, they’re one of the best underated band within England in my opinion. If you don’t beieve me, well check these two music video’s. The first is called 1950’s Woman which includes some live footage from the last year.


And here’s the latest hard hitting single, Bones.



Woah! Powerful tracks there and what’s that you ask? When are they touring?

Well, they’re off on tour, opening for Sumo Cyco and Devilskin within the next month.

Here’s the dates.
