Until recently, Death lived in punk rock obscurity, with only a small handful of punk enthusiasts having ever championed for them. However, with the release of the 2013 documentary A Band Called Death, the group quickly was embraced and credited as being the first black punk band to exist.
Hailing from Detroit, the Hackney brothers David, Bobby, and Dannis created the kind of music that spoke of deep emotional turmoil and angst. Taking a moment to watch the documentary on the band, it’s easy to say that Death has experienced far more than many of their more popular punk contemporaries. It’s taken decades, but Death is finally receiving the acclaim they’ve always deserved and are set to play the Chapel on March 23.
Joining them are Orange County’s Audacity who’v released their fair share of LPs, EPs, and cassettes on the likes of Burger Records and Suicide Squeeze.
