We are delighted to announce that Dead Gaze has signed to Palmist. After releasing a slew of cassettes and 7” records on notable DIY labels like Group Tightener, Fire Talk, and Clan Destine, and receiving critical acclaim on sites such as Altered Zones, The Fader, and Weekly Tape Deck, Dead Gaze, the nom de plume of Mississippi’s R. Cole Furlow, finally delivers his debut self-titled LP, released on Palmist Records on March the 25th in the UK and May 21st in the U.S.
The album brings together highlights from the extensive Dead Gaze back catalogue, now mostly out of print, with new unheard material. Coming from the hills of North Mississippi and the Cats Purring Collective (featuring prolific artists like Dent May, Bass Drum of Death and Flight), Furlow has been releasing material under the guise of Dead Gaze since 2009, recently morphing into a five piece live band, though the album was mostly written, played, and recorded by Furlow. Combining effortless pop songs with recordings that put an emphasis on texture, Dead Gaze has delivered a densely layered and engaging record.
The FADER have premiered a previously unreleased track, ‘I Found the Ending’, which they’ve called a ‘pretty massive-sounding dream-pop anthem’ HERE, and you can download the track from the Dead Gaze facebook page HERE.
‘Dead Gaze’ will be released on vinyl and as a digital download on March 25th in the UK and May 21st in the U.S.
