We are Dearly Departed.
Creating driving guitar riffs accentuated by soaring rock and roll choruses in the vein of Of Mice & Men meets Breaking Benjamin, the Minnesota quartet that makes up Dearly Departed, brings an intense live show, crowd pleasing riffs, and range defying vocals. In their region, they have established themselves as one of the best up and coming hard rock acts, drawing hundreds of people in their local market along with interest and radio play on clear channel radio Q105.1 in Fargo, ND and 93X in Minneapolis, MN almost immediately after their debut in 2018.
On track to support artists such as Beartooth, Fame on Fire, Stick to Your Guns, Trivium, Black Label Society, and more before cancellations caused by COVID-19; coupled with the loss of all funding to record their new record, they have been forced to overcome countless obstacles to come out of the pandemic better than before. With the help of their fans, Dearly Departed worked with producer Joshua Barber (Norma Jean, Tech N9ne, Hit The Lights) on their new music set for released in Fall 2020, including Chasing You and Hindsight.
