Interview: Hardy Morris Of Dead Confederate; Playing The Black Cat 5/17

dead-confederate-bandFor the uninitiated, Dead Confederate is a five-piece rock band from Athens, GA whose music runs the gamut of infectious psychedelia to a uniquely southern and ferocious dirge. Although, placing labels on a band like this is rather pointless as their sound seems a constant and fluid evolution; they never seem content with abiding by the guides of one sub-genre, so maybe it’s best we just leave it at “rock” for simplicity’s sake.

With their third full-length, “In The Marrow”, recently released, Dead Confederate has been hitting the road hard sharing their new music with fans around the country. For old time’s sake, we dug up this awesome interview with Hardy Morris of Dead Confederate that’s been in our vault of interviews from a couple years back! Check it out!

What is the most outrageous gift you’ve ever received from a fan?

A fan once made a box full of odd things, like charms and guitar pics, and then remembered she forgot something and came back in with an old Mars bar, that she says she thought of me when she saw it.

How do you take your coffee?

One spoonful of sugar, unless I am hungover, in which I put some milk in it, so I am can slam it back quick! Now I have a questions for you! What do coffee and Eric Clapton have in common? They both suck without Cream! Read more about Interview: Hardy Morris Of Dead Confederate; Playing The Black Cat 5/17

From the start of the warping and undulating tones of the guitars, it would be easy to instantly feel lost. For fans who expected some semblance of similarity from the debut Wrecking Ball, prepare to take a turn through the jungle of sound and emotion brought on by Dead Confederate. The sophomore release Sugar doesn’t disappoint, but it does take getting used to if listeners anticipate that harsh Southern bite found in tracks like “The Rat” and “Start Me Laughing.” Tracks like the drawn out yet incredibly inspiring and poetic “Flesh Colored Canvas” are missing from Sugar as well. The longest song on the album is the single, “Giving It All Away,” at four minutes and 50 seconds and includes a guest appearance by J. Mascis. An aching sentiment still exists in driven and introspective lyrics written by frontman Hardy Morris and bassist Brantley Senn, but the music exchanges the telltale slide guitar and whining tone for a more pop albeit cinematic atmosphere.
