In a cellar deep underneath Bristol, Dead Fast Hares have been weaving dark, driving riffs with dreamy diversions, all spun in with tales of life, sleep and journeys.

 

Already gracing the stages of Bristol’s most coveted and iconic venues, they are now primed for their debut release.

 

The Miles Ago EP blends post-rock crescendos and ambient breakdowns with brooding melodic vocals and keys. This record is full of music to transport you down lonely roads from past and future.

 

Following recent shows at Bristol’s Louisiana, Thunderbolt and Fleece, Dead Fast Hares will be launching the Miles Ago EP at Rough Trade, Bristol. Their new live show and a fantastic support line-up mean this promises to be the band’s biggest show yet

Dead Fast Hares’ live shows are an endless evolution. Each gig feels like another step on a journey that’ll never be finished. At a basic level, the band aim to put out interesting music, but from Matt’s finger-tapping bass lines and Freddie’s many percussion tools, to Tom’s multi-instrumental juggling and James’ ambient soundscaping, they’re always raising the bar for their live performances.


The band was dreamt up when James (guitar) and Freddie (drums/samples) jammed to shake off the cold on a mid-winter surf trip. A few days later, Tom (vocals/guitar/keys) was recruited as the frontman and that surf-trip jam developed into their first track, Islands. Once Matt (bass/vocals) joined, they found their characteristic sound and officially became Dead Fast Hares.
