I first came across this band via a documentary called of “A Band Called Death,” a 70’s punk rock band from Detroit. They are considered the first punk rock band (even before The Ramones) and because of their timing, they experienced very limited success at the time but are now considered visionaries. Death disbanded in 1977 but in 2009, the Drag City label re-released their original demos. After returning to the spotlight, the band members (sans lead David Hackney) have started performing and promoting their past music once again. “Death III” will be released on April 22nd, 2014 and will feature tracks from 1975, 1976, 1980 and two tracks from 1992. If you haven’t seen the documentary yet, I highly suggest you go find a copy and watch it ASAP.
