Dead Serious was a hardcore punk band from Richmond, Virginia circa 2000 to 2004.
The band formed from the ashes of local hardcore band Hate-O-Four. The band featured Jay Rollins on vocals. Bass guitar by Shane Legano (Duration, Hate-O-Four, and later Cast Aside), Jason Orr (Hate-O-Four, Barfight) and Brian (Murder Weapon, Scarlett, Park Sparrows) on guitar, and Chris Ferguson on Drums (Indypendent, Uphill Down).
The band recorded their first full-length, 2000’s self-titled ‘Dead Serious’, and released it on Team Jaybird records, before going on to sign a deal with PA’s Thorpe Records for a few more amazing records.
In 2017, the self-titled release was re-released digitally on OVOLR! / Debackle.
With the closing of Strange Matter (the latest incarnation of the punk club that has been at 929 W Grace Street, here in Richmond, for more than 30 years).. our nostalgia was stoked, and we thought we’d share some fliers from OVOLR! artists that played shows here. First up, 500$FINE, who played their first show […]
