The hottest act to break the Korean Republic, Dead Buttons, are also set to win hearts and minds with an extensive live jaunt. They will be playing across the UK, Mainland Europe, America and Asia in 2016.
Cult Liverpool imprint Baltic Records have taken on the duo’s first full length album ‘Some Kind of Youth’ – slated for release in early July to coincide with the band’s performances at FestEvol (1st May) and Liverpool Sound City (28th May).
Dead Buttons are big stars in South Korea and the wider Asian market. Their music takes strong influence from American rock ‘n’ roll – but with a strong contemporary feel. The band were spotted by label managers Jack Launer and Liverpool Sound City’s David Pichilingi when they were over in Seoul visiting the acclaimed Zandari Festival.
Influenced by the cavernous post-punk of Killing Joke, Joy Division and Gang Of Four – the saviours of Rock’n’Seoul have risen.
The explosive new single ‘Desire’ is out on 28th May via Baltic Records.
