Toronto, ON’s Adrian Pain & The Dead Sexy unleashed their new EP ‘Mixed Messages’ this past February to continue their solid chemistry of an ‘Allcore’ metal sound with emotionally stirring and socially conscious lyrics. The EP is a marriage of Adrian Pain’s solo endeavours and The Dead Sexy’s band work to follow EPs ‘Picture Day At Night School’ (2014) and their debut ‘The First One Is Free’ (2013) along with Pain’s solo full length ‘Love Letters & Suicide Notes’ (2012).
Pain describes ‘Mixed Messages’:
“This release is like the gateway drug to metal and heavier music in general! We appeal to a very wide range of musical tastes so guys can play us for their girlfriends, and girls can play us for the guys. If you identify another way, you can play us for whomever you’d like. If any negative response comes out of it, it’ll be the fans that expect every song to get heavier with each effort. What I hope they notice is the constant evolution of our sound. The music itself is getting more and more diverse and progressive, while the song structures are also evolving into bigger, more complex arrangements. I want everyone that listens to this record to feel an emotional connection. I want people to relate to, and hear the MESSAGE in each track.”
In support of the new EP, the ‘Allcore’ metal band has teamed with New Noise Mag for the premiere of their new video ‘Day One’.
“The band and I are all fans of ‘play through’ videos. Usually you’d see individual play through videos like bassists, drummers, or guitarists by themselves. I had recently watched a few that Luke Holland & Jason Richardson have done together and thought it would be very cool to do a full band play through. We were originally planning on doing another lyric video for “Day One” but the idea fit nicely with this track because of all the great individual parts. We want our friends and fans out there, who may not always have a chance to catch ‘Adrian Pain & The Dead Sexy’ live, see us play and get a feel for what we do as musicians.” – Adrian Pain
