Austin, Texas indie metal machine DEAD EARTH POLITICS will celebrate a decade of Metal next month with a string of dates across Texas. The trio of shows will culminate in the band’s “official” birthday bash on October 16th at Dirty Dog Bar in Austin. The October 16 show will see original guitarist Ernie Clark joining the band onstage for a handful of DEAD EARTH POLITICS classics.

DEAD EARTH POLITICS is fresh off the “Road to GWAR-BQ Tour,” which saw the band raise hell from Texas to Virginia, where they laid waste to the GWAR-BQ Pavilion Stage. The band took along a video camera to chronicle their on and off-stage shenanigans. These mini-rockumentaries were hosted by MetalInjection.net and can be viewed at the link below:

PRAISE FOR DEAD EARTH POLITICS:
“An awesome display of peak, valley, mountain and river. A monster demon and omnivorous angel both winged and flying over melodies of aggressive thrash and classic metal. A good mix of old meeting new.” – Jason McMaster, Watchtower / Broken Teeth
“”Dead Earth Politics are perfect blend of thrash and power metal. Mixing the aggressive styles of thrash and modern metal with epic and melodic elements that we love about metal. The vocals, drums, bass and guitar are equally powerful in their own right. DEP will please the old school and new metal fans alike” – Hiran Deraniyagala, Battlecross
“If I owned a record label the first band I would sign would be Dead Earth Politics. Not only because they are a great band that continues to evolve over the years, but these guys have the intangibles that few bands possess in their arsenal. They are creative, intelligent and professional. They have the hunger, heart and desire to not let anything stop them from reaching their goals. They are their own managers, booking agents, promoters, and most importantly… each one of them is very talented musicians. This band deserves all the accolades they receive because Dead Earth Politics can back it all up.” – Bruce Corbitt, Rigor Mortis / Warbeast
