Tour Bus Playlist: Dead Posey’s essential tracks

The LA duo are currently supporting Theory across the UK, and play Download Festival in 2020.

LA duo Dead Posey create an anthemic blend of huge rock and roll riffs and pop hooks, led by Danyell Souza’s powerful vocals. Souza teamed up with multi-instrumentalist and producer Tony F, over a year crafting last year’s Freak Show EP, a record that welcomed significant acclaim, drawing comparison to the likes of The Kills and The Black Keys, among others.

This year, Dead Posey released their latest single Fire Burnin’, an ominous number inspired by the Salem Witch Trials. “Fire Burnin’ is about being untamable. Vicious And feeling like nothing can extinguish you,” Souza said upon release. “This is our first single since our debut EP Freak Show – and we’re ready to let this one out of the cage.”

Danyell Souza and Tony F are currently touring across the UK, supporting Theory (formerly Theory Of A Deadman), and have been confirmed to appear at Download Festival 2020. To mark the occasion, the duo have selected the songs that soundtrack their time on the road.


Depeche Mode – Welcome To My World
“Sets the mood as the first song on our playlist, Acquainted With The Night. It’s dark & moody, just the way we like it.”

The Smiths – How Soon Is Now
“The atmospheric ambience this song alludes makes any night drive mesmerizing.”

Joy Division – Shadowplay
“This song had to have been written for driving in a bad ass car at night on the open highway. From the minute the first guitar kicks in to the first note of the vocals, this song makes you wanna drive all night while feeling a little mischievous and sexy.”

The Cure – One Hundred Years
“Robert Smiths vocals are enchanting, enough said…”

The Kills – Doing It To Death
“Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince make magic with everything they do. Doing It To Death is a must-listen that gets us in the head space to live the vampire life of playing shows ‘night after night after night’. If you don’t know who these magical beings are do yourself a favor and check them out.”

Marilyn Manson – Fated, Faithful, Fatal
“This song has gritty ‘on the road again’ tone with Manson’s devilish vocals. With those ingredients you get a swag of a song that puts you in a trance while flying down the dark road to the next stop.”

The Church – Under The Milky Way
“This song makes you feel like you could drive right up into space and disappear into the great unknown.”
