Deadguy

Deadguy

Deadguy was a metalcore band from New Brunswick, New Jersey, USA.

History

Formed in 1994, Deadguy took inspiration from bands like the Unsane and Today is the Day. The band took their name from a line in the John Candy movie, Only the Lonely,. Although not as widely known as some of their peers, Deadguy has proven to be very influential on modern hardcore and metal as evidenced by their only proper studio album, Fixation on a Co-Worker being inducted into the Decibel magazine Hall of Fame in July 2006,

The band embarked on a fateful US tour in support of Fixation On A Co-Worker that was plagued by horrible booking and lack of monetary funds. The band splintered during the western leg of the tour as Keith Huckins and Tim Singer left the band and moved to Seattle, Washington to form Kiss It Goodbye. The remaining members (Tim Naumann, Chris Corvino and Dave Rosenberg) then recruited Jim Baglino (on second guitar and bass respectively). After the line-up changes, Deadguy wrote and recorded Screamin' with The Deadguy Quintet. A US tour with Bloodlet ensued in support of the EP. The tour was gruelling but successful and Thom Rusnak left the band shortly thereafter, and the rest of Deadguy recruited Doc Hopper member Chris Pierce to replace him. They played their last show in New Brunswick, NJ in 1997.
