Give them big amps and a four-count and They Stay Dead will peel the paint off anything in their way. The Edmond, Oklahoma, quartet started playing together two years ago with the intention, according to bassist Dave Klein, of going back “to what made us get into music: aggro riffs, fast beats and yelling about stuff that sucks.” So far, it’s working: The All-American Rejects’ Mike Kennerty manned the board for their last two EPs, and Klein’s also done time in Screeching Weasel. “We started this band because that's what we do,” he says. “We're lifers. We have real jobs and families, but we'll never stop playing music.” [JP]
