Dead Stars was formed in 2009 by Jeff Moore (guitar, vocals), his cousin Jaye Moore (drums) and John Watterberg (bass). This Brooklyn, NY three piece came together to create their own brand of indie pop, with fuzzed out guitars, hook laden riffs and melodic sensibilities. During the first few years the band self released three EP’s before gaining the attention of local label Uninhabitable Mansions, who released 2013′s five song ‘High Gain’ EP. Building on the positive response of that record, Dead Stars went back into the studio to record their first full length, Slumber. After hearing the album, the band was signed by Old Flame Records who released their record in June of 2014.
