The Dead Century works in the deeply personal, loose-cannon narratives of The Hold Steady and Bruce Springsteen expressed through the expansive and emotionally engaging soundscapes of The War On Drugs. Their somewhat mercurial 2017 debut effort, the Nevada Sun EP, showcased the band's penchant for character and narrative-driven music. The band released the One More Year / Molly single in early 2018; Ten Ton Summer was released in August 2019. Two more singles came near the beginning of 2020, Bombay Beach and Realign. A longer recording effort followed, the result of which is The Well, their first studio album, which arrived in October of 2022.
