DEAD BY WEDNESDAY's forth release and brand new upcoming CD is a short but sweet five song powerhouse EP entitled "Death of the Rockstar" that leaves you wanting more. It's in one sense, the death of one long chapter of the band's history due to the loss of long-time guitarist Ross Ragusa (who is still playing on this CD), but is also the rebirth of a hardworking, independent metal band that has morphed into a "real" unstoppable international act.
A band that can be put up on the same stages with any of the top metal contenders "of the now." Throughout the years they have toured relentlessly, and in doing so have found their own sound and style, creating a fierce loyal fan base along the way. Now, with all the right members in place, they have all the pistons of this metal turbo engine running full throttle, and are without a doubt a serious force to be reckoned with. The Death of the Rockstar is also a metaphor for the dying music industry of today. This is not in regards to the art or creation of music by our fellow musicians, (even though we do feel it’s slightly over saturated), but rather the negative impact that the corporate politics involved has had on the current scene.
