It's launch day - as in blast-off - for this apocalyptic 
fire-and-brimstone rock/blues explosion. Book-ended by hellfire preacher tracks 'Renegade Genesis' and 'Adam's Descent', words spat out with genuine ire, The Dead Reds command attention. Very English as in the Diggers & the anarchist Travellers, with echoes of the Zeps & the Sabbath, they storm and rage like a Mad Max lightning storm - thunderous drums, pumping bass, sheet metal guitar, wailing harmonica and  full-frontal bear-roar vocals - The Dead Reds are fighting Agincourt in a shopping mall. The growing frustration and anger of a dispossessed generation finds its voice with 'Disobey', 'Digital Age','Judgement Day', 'Scorch The Earth', and 'Coming for The Crown' and holds its own referendum - are you part of the problem or part of the solution. Lewes speaks.
