Dead By Wednesday

Dead By Wednesday play some serious, in-your-face, chugging, explosive, knock-your-teeth-out, hardcore metal. Longtime New Haven scene vet Opus is the drummer, and he doesn't mess around with anything but the best. "We're writing and recording the next album," says Opus. "We're in the studio with Nick Bellmore, the guy that does all of the Hatebreed and Jasta stuff. We've got one new tune done that just came out on the new Hatewear Compilation, and it's available for free download right now on our Soundcloud page, which is" Until the band is done with recording, they're holding off on most show offers to keep their focus on the goal at hand. "We're in talks with a couple different labels," says Opus, who has co-released each of the three previous Dead By Wednesdays as a split with his own label, Mindsnap. In the meantime, he's eagerly awaiting the birth of his first child, which may happen by the time this goes to print. "I just want to be respected as a band that throughout the years kept it real and stayed true to who we are and what we're about, and never strayed off the path. I don't need to be rich, I don't need to be a superstar; I just want to make a living playing music and writing music." —Mike Sembos
