Formed in 2011 and featuring members of USA Nails, Death Pedals and Los Bitchos, London noise-punks Dead Arms release their second album 'Simply Dead' on Hominid Sounds / Rip This Joint Records on 10th May 2019.

Written throughout 2017 and recorded live over a single weekend in early 2018 at Bear Bites Horse Studio in East London, 'Simply Dead' is 25 minutes of bass-heavy aggression akin to the output of Amphetamine Reptile and early Sub Pop records. With a no frills approach to song writing, driving rhythm, ferocious guitar and the ever present guttural howl of frontman ‘General Waste’, all 10 tracks are succinct slices of Jesus Lizard infused garage punk dealing with the big issues of our time from Brexit to Hollywood sex scandals.
Following the release of their debut album in 2015 Dead Arms toured throughout France with Blacklisters, Broker and The St. Pierre Snake Invasion and have shared stages in the UK with the likes of Yards, Big Lad, JOHN, Heavy Lungs, Petrol Girls, Thee MVPS, Casual Nun and Bad Breeding.
They now embark on a 9 date tour of the UK and Europe kicking off with their first London show for over a year on 23rd May at The Shacklewell Arms followed by a set at the Cardiff Psych and Noise Fest on 24th May. See them throughout Europe from the 26th with fellow London DIY noise rockers 'USA Nails’.
