Formed by two ex-members of One Man Army, San Francisco punk quartet Dead To Me has garnered a tremendous amount of excitement from the their live shows. Their debut album, CUBAN BALLERINA, meets, if not exceeds, those expectations. A collection of raw, melodic songs, the album touches on issues of addiction and recovery, suicide, and the war in Iraq. The guitars are blistering and the dual delivery from the band's two singers creates a unique sound. These are quick-paced, infectious punk songs that will quickly get under your skin.
