Dead Favours Release Epic New Single 'Misbehaviour' And Announce Debut Album

27 May 2019 - 0 Comments

Dead Favours mark the announcement of their debut album release with the bombastic new single Misbehaviour.

Storming straight out of the gates with thumping drums and a riff that means absolute business, Misbehaviour is a defiant anthem for those moments in life that arise just to provoke, and ingrain that feeling that nothing is going to go your way.

Misbehaviour is the title track from the album of the same name which releases 21 June. This debut album is the result of three years of dedication and hard graft, which has been punctuated with a succession of single releases including the radio hits Dig and On Your Own.

This 10 song collection of massive rock tracks was recorded between Homesurgery studios in Melbourne and The Lab in Auckland, with Shihad’s Tom Larkin as Producer and Jon Grace on Engineer and co-producer duties across both sides of the ditch.

“Working with Tom Larkin and his team has been an outstanding, inspiring and highly educational experience,” the band states. “We could tell you dozens of stories about their unusual methods to get the best performances out of us and in turn make us better musicians. They had the ability to hear potential in our ideas, and help us achieve them in ways that we never could have imagined. We are ridiculously proud of the end result and are stoked to have made some life-long friends in the process”

Although the band don't like to take themselves too seriously, the album continues to expand on the emotional themes of the lead single, and is inspired by many of the tough situations the band has been through over the last few years.

“After we finished recording the album, upon listening back, we started to see a theme running through the album,” they explain. “The concept for Misbehaviour came from the idea that it feels like life can often misbehave. Like it's pushing against you just to piss you off. Lyrically the album is drawn from many of the tough situations that life throws at you - relationship difficulties, family issues, mental health struggles, building a house, selling a house... many of the struggles we all go through at some point in our lives.”

The band also celebrate the journey towards album release day with a 5-part mini-documentary, which debuts on the Dead Favours YouTube channel today. Releasing a new episode each week, the series will take you behind the scenes of the Misbehaviour album recording process.

Live, Dead Favours are a growing force to be reckoned with, performing scorching sets at Rock The Park and Homegrown, while gaining major supports for Rise Against, Royal Blood and Halestorm. Dead Favours will now join Villainy as special guests on the 7-date Raised in the Dark NZ Tour, which commences on Thursday 11 July in Christchurch. Tickets available from villainymusic.com.

Dead Favours new single Misbehaviour is out now.

The full-length album of the same name is available for pre-order now, with physical copies available through Bandcamp.
