"post-hardcore influences and a snotty punk attitude...death pose make their mark as a band to watch." - Decibel Magazine

“a kitchen sink of hardcore, punk, and hard rock characteristics, death pose are making a solid statement on their debut” - New Noise Magazine 

 death pose are a brand new heavy-as-shit band from Chicago, IL. Originally known as big bird., the band formed in 2022 from the ashes of numerous punk/hardcore/indie bands including Typesetter, The Sky We Scrape, Little Teeth, etc. After quickly releasing a three-song EP, they supported heavy hitters like The Casket Lottery, Local H and Hum’s Matt Talbot, along with an appearance at Gainesville's 20th anniversary of the legendary Fest. 

On Midnight Society, the band tear through 13 incendiary tracks of down-tuned punk/post-hardcore influenced noise rock replete with indelible hooks, sharp angular riffage, and a rhythm section that resonates with urgency. The album was produced by Jeff Dean (Alkaline Trio, Braid, The Story So Far, Samiam) at The Echo Mill and mastered by Alan Douches (Converge, Every Time I Die, Thrice, Mastodon, Dillinger Escape Plan) at West West Side. Dark lyrical themes of personal dissociation, political action, religious intolerance, heartbreak, and the human experience are woven throughout, adding a layer of realism and responsibility to their discord.  

See death pose through the East Coast in December with Local H and at the Brutal Panda 15 Year Anniversary Showcase! See below for a complete listing of dates and details.

Local H frontman Scott Lucas, who brought the band to the attention of Brutal Panda and commented:
"Alex told me about this new band they were in and I was like “Okay. Whatever. I’ll check it out.” As it turned out, our band's practice in the same building. One day I heard this awesome racket blasting out of one of the rooms down  the hall. I texted Alex. “Is that you?” Alex texted back with a “yup” — and I’ve been a proselytizing super-fan ever since. Definitely, one of my favorite new bands."
