Dead Writers are as striking and intriguing as their name suggests. Based in London, theirs is an ambitious sound defined by layers of dynamic guitars, anthem choruses and compelling vocals.
The band’s heady fusion of musical roar of Led Zeppelin, the glassy melancholy of The Cure and the dark swagger of The Cult.
Originally formed in 2017 by frontman/songwriter Paul Shine, Dead Writers are an explosive 5-piece who are fast building a reputation for themselves in the capital’s rock music scene, due in no small part to their arresting live performance.
Having recently joined Hermitage Works Studios as resident recording artists, Dead Writers have just published their official debut single ‘Medusa’ (June 2018), with a follow-up single to be released imminently. They also host their own night in London, ‘Best Of All Worlds’, where they share the stage with a carefully curated collection of local acts they know and love.

‘Our premise is to infuse new and contemporary life into the concept of a rock band, combining the electricity of the rock & roll spirit with the music that is mostly rich in melody, accompanied by lyrics that bear a certain poetic intention. We want our songs to have the depth and variety of book characters.’ – Dead writers
