Like the product of some sort of alchemical alignment or a diabolical modern demon summoned by a whispered incantatory spell, With The Dead formed on All Hallow's Eve 2014. They worked quickly and the result is a six-track, self-titled debut broadside that draws on the members' rich musical legacy but without ever taking a backward step.Recorded at Orgone Studios in High Barnet, London, with producer/engineer Jaime Gomez Arellano in late March/early April 2015,With The Dead'svocals were then added in two very short evening sessions in April and May 2015.

With The Deadwas released in October 2015. It is available to order from the Rise Above Records online storeHERE.
