Dearly Departed is a Midwest active rock/metalcore band who aims to release songs all the way from melodic hard rock with catchy vocal melodies that’ll get stuck in your head to crushing metalcore with intense story and internal conflict that’s still appealing to the average listener. Doing nothing half-ass, the Minnesota quintet that makes up Dearly Departed, brings an intense live show, crowd pleasing riffs, and relatable vocals; who’ve supported industry heavy hitters such as Beartooth, Wage War, Stitched Up Heart, Saving Abel, and more.
In their region, they have established themselves as one of the best up and coming hard rock acts, drawing hundreds of people in their local market along with interest and radio play on clear channel radio Q105.1 in Fargo, ND and 93X in Minneapolis, MN almost immediately after their debut in 2018.
Dearly Departed has worked with producers Joshua Barber (Norma Jean, The Devil Wears Prada) and Jeremy Schaeffer (Earth Groans, Through Fire) on perfecting their songwriting craft to where it is today. The band’s new album, ‘Heartless’, will be released to all platforms via DI Records on October 14th, 2022.
