Some exciting things have been happening for local punk band It Hurts To Be Dead since we ran their cover story in May. I caught up with the band- Kevin Gilmore, Nick Thornton, and Sean Snyder- to get the skinny on what’s happened since then.
They have been in negotiations with some movie and filmmakers to possibly feature their music, but nothing has been confirmed to date.
What is a sure thing is the release of their 5-song EP, Old Habits And Die Hards, due to be released in late summer or early fall. It was recorded at 12 Forward Sound in Deep Ellum and is co-produced by Josh Fleming of The Vandaliers and John Pedigo of The O’s.
Although It Hurts To Be Dead may be classified as a punk band, Kevin says the music on this record reaches across the borders of different genres such as garage type rock and alternative styles which shows the diversity of their music.
