Uncle Acid and The Deadbeats Tickets
Maybe it's the use of vintage recording equipment and instruments that makes Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats so popular. Maybe it's the English psychedelic doom metal genre that they embody so wholeheartedly. Maybe it's their comparison to Alice Cooper's earlier days and statements that say their music reeks of the Manson Family murders. Whatever it is, Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats have officially arrived.
They may call their home Cambridge, but those who want Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats tickets won't have to travel far to see the band. This is thanks to the fact that they've played everywhere from The Roxy in West Hollywood to the Robin Hill Country Park in Isle of Wight during Bestival 2014. They've also made their way to the Pukkelpop Festival in Belgium and the Novarock Festival in Austria. They'll continue their globetrotting while touring with visits to La Fleche d'Or in Paris, The Fleece in Bristol, the Manchester Gorilla in Manchester, and Whelan's in Dublin.
There are online claims that vinyl first press editions of the band's album, Blood Lust, have gone for over £700. This might be hard to believe, but it's nearly impossible to verify thanks to the persona the band has created for itself. The band claims to have stayed hidden away from view of the public, but their name was quickly noticed in the public eye since it's derived from Rusty Day's later band Uncle Acid and the Permanent Damage. Their alternative name gets just as much notoriety: The Sharon Tate Experience.
The band has purposefully hidden its roots and even identities from the general public. The lead singer, Kevin Starrs, even noted that one reviewer referred to him as a woman. Those who have Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats tickets will also be privy to seeing Dean Millar, Itamar Rubinger, and Yotam Rubinger. Starrs once went by the name Uncle Acid, but he has since dropped it and now refers to the whole band by the name. The band released their first album, Volume 1, after receiving requests from five people on Myspace who enjoyed their music. They would go on to release two other albums, a few singles, and even be featured on the album, Something In The Water - A Rise Above Compilation.
Volume 1 didn't get much attention upon its release, but when Blood Lust came out in 2012, the band hit almost immediate fame. Metacritic stated that the album received "universal acclaim," and its release led to the band supporting Black Sabbath and playing several festivals, including Hellfest, Bukta Tromso Open Air Festival, Download, Roadburn, and Off Festival, among many others.
Blood Lust was undoubtedly the most well-received album from Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats when it came out in 2012, but they also received some critical acclaim for their 2013 album Mind Control. Blabbermouth said that new fans to the band would enjoy the album, and that these and prior fans will enjoy what's to come from the band.
Fans of stoner rock, doom metal, psychedelic rock, and the early days of metal will all enjoy Uncle Acid's shows equally. The guys embody what a rock stars are supposed to look like, and the aura created from dark lights pulls off the full mysterious effect that the band is going for. Concert attendees can expect non-stop headbanging from the band and hands held high displaying rock signs from every fan in the audience. It's a spectacle, and those who are lucky enough to witness it will understand the comparisons to the gods of metal."
