With the release of their second album ‘Dark Days’ nearly upon us, Manchester metallers The Dead XIII have announced they will be hosting a launch show tomorrow (Friday the 9th of Feb) at Sanctuary Rock Bar in Burnley.
The show is in celebration of the albums release, following an incredibly successful crowdfunding campaign by the band. Also on the bill is no other than Los Angeles based LOWLIVES (featuring members of The Defiled, Amen and The Ataris), who are touring the UK for the first time.
The show will be a night to remember, as well as the perfect way to commemorate the release of all killer no filler album ‘Dark Days’.
On the subject of ‘Dark Days’, The Dead XIII have this to say:
“Dark Days is about the psychological horror that comes with life. The horrors everyone feels that hides in the pit of our minds. No one is alone, together we can find a way to get through the dark and into the light.”

About The Dead XIII
Having exploded onto the North West UK’s music scene in 2013, The Dead XIII came to national attention in the Summer of 2015 with their debut full length album Catacombs being acclaimed by both fans and the UK rock music press.
Since then, they have headlined or taken part in numerous highly successful tours with bands such as Doyle from The Misfits, Farewell, My Love, Ashestoangels and Griever just to name a few. The Summer of 2017 saw them invited to headline the Indomitus Stage at Scotland’s Wildfire Festival, as well as an appearance at Macmillan Festival in Nottingham. Most recently, The Dead XIII headlined The Bloodlines Tour with City Of Ashes across the UK, culminating in a traditional Halloween show in their hometown of Manchester.
Dark Days’ continues the vicious onslaught found on the band’s debut album Catacombs (2015) and sees everything taken to the next level. Recorded at the prestigious Hellfire Studios, Dark Days see’s the focus on more psychological horrors, where the real enemy is not seen, not just lurking in the shadows, but in the shadows of your mind.
