History

Hailing from the rural outskirts of New Castle, Pennsylvania, in an area affectionately known as Zombieland, the Dead City Dealers are a five-piece sucker punch to all of the mediocre rock acts currently dominating the local club circuit.

Let's just get one thing straight: DCD are a punk band. Yes, that's right, punk rock, and we're not talking about bands like Good Charlotte, Lit, New Found Glory, or even Green Day. DCD is not a pop band. Nothing we write is intricate in the least. We are simplicity at its finest, and unapologetically so. DCD's power lies in it's energy and strength as a unit. We play 3 or 4 chords per song. Sometimes more, but rarely. The drummer bashes out four-on-the-floor beats, and the two guitarists play in a tuning designed for a monkey to play. But from the first chord, it's a wall of beautiful noise that you swear might fall to pieces at any moment, but it never does. It just keeps on coming.

We play for the love of doing it, and to entertain the people who love what we're doing as much as we do. Not for money, not for fame, but to get as many people as we can into our music and hopefully never let them down.
