With a catalogue of songs ranging from high paced dance, garage to post- punk, The Dead Beat have captured a uniquely modern sound that appeals to a punk sensibility, while sticking strictly to a professional work ethic. This has proven successful for the band in creating a collection of songs which have been widely appreciated by audiences to date and with their debut E.P 'Your 19th Revolution' having just had its official release, it only adds to the intrigue.

2012 brought the celebrated release of three promotional videos and a number of free downloads to broaden the fan base quickly and allow for easy access to the music. This initial mode of operation has resulted in gaining critical praise over a short period of time.

• Paul Kavanagh, of the acclaimed Chew Your Own Fat website (providing unbiased views and reviews on the Irish indie scene)

"It baffles me how this band don’t have a cult following, as they sound exactly like the next generation of disillusioned debt-kids SHOULD sound. Bold, cynical, and kinda pissed off. "

• Below, a link to another generous review straight from the Chew Your Own Fat website of the most recent single to date 'Chase The Sun', highlighting the need for the The Dead Beat's sound and attitude in today's industry. It is definitely worth a read to gain a further understanding and perspective of the band.

• Robbie Kane - The Psychedelic Society. (Reviewing ‘Phoney' Promo)
"Great track, first Irish band with an actual marketable sense of melody and character of sound that I've heard in a long, long time. As a psych rock fan, I can't praise this enough... sent it out to everyone in my contacts."-
