From Chicago, Illinois … members of Rise Against, Alkaline Trio, Articles Of Faith and the Bomb.
The new Dead Ending record “American Virus” is out today via Alternative Tentacles!!!
Here’s how it happened: On tour in 2006, Bomb guitarist Jeff Dean met and befriended Vic Bondi, the frontman of legendary Chicago punk heroes Articles Of Faith. They bonded over hyper aggressive 80’s bands and discussed the possibility of starting a band. When he got home, Jeff got busy and wrote some tunes, then recruited longtime friend, and Alkaline Trio drummer Derek Grant to help him lay the tracks down in Million Yen Studios, where Jeff works as an engineer. Vic liked the songs and signed on. Joe Principe of Rise Against came aboard on bass soon after that, and BOOM! Dead Ending was born.
