Get The Entire Compilation – Bandcamp / I Heart Noise
Note – not to be confused with Deadhorse, a metal band from the early 90s.
Deadhorse is a post-rock band from Erie, PA. Starting in the fall of 2009, the original intent of Deadhorse was to be a transition from Brian Morgante’s solo music into full band. After doing a few shows with the full band material, the band started writing new material as a four piece: Brian Morgante on guitar, Rachel Shesman on piano, Josh Travis on bass, and Craig Sucharski on Drums. Through the refining process, the band took steps in a new direction and decided to switch things up entirely, going with a full instrumental sound. Josh Travis disbanded from the group, and Tyler Long, who also played with Brian in Awaken, North Wind! joined and started writing the new material. Many second guitar players have cycled through since the beginning of Deadhorse, including Tyler James from Radio Empire, Nick Bufalino from Precinct Aflame, Dan Van Matre from Aevory Nash, and Ryan Zimmerman. Jess Scutella from Radio Empire has also played shows as auxillary percussion with Deadhorse. – Last.fm
Interview with Futuristika Magazine (Istanbul, Turkey)
First, it was your solo Project, then reformed to a band. What was the main reason for such a change?
The reason for the change really came out of thin air, but was always an idea floating around not far out of reach. Personally, I had wanted to do an instrumental project for years at that point. Nothing really ever worked out to where this could happen, and it was thrown to the backburner each time. I never really wanted to be a full-time front man, as I get sick easily and my voice tends to give out if I over do it. For the amount that I was desiring to do something full time, anything with vocals was going to create a big obstacle. We all sat down and talked about the idea of pushing forward as an instrumental band, and figured we’d give it a try. We all liked music like that for some time, but had never worked on those sort of songs with one another. It definitely became a great learning and growing experience for all of us, and as we’re still trying to find all the right members for the band, it keeps evolving and taking a better shape as each day passes!
