Dance with the Dead is a electronic based music duo by Justin Pointer and Tony Kim based out of Orange County, California. Inspired by retrospective movies and music from the 60’s, 70’s and 80s, they’re sound reﬂects heavily on the analog synthesizer sounds, and early heavy metal guitars. They released they’re debut record “Out of Body” on October 31st to great reviews in the synth wave, metal, and EDM communities alike. They quickly followed up with the EP “Into the Abyss” 4 months later which had a darker mood to it and explode their ability to write orchestral score pieces. August, 2014 saw the second full length released titled “Near Dark” which furthered their pressing stamp on the synth scene with such cross over hits like “Andromeda” and “Invader”. Going against normal record cycle rules, they released yet another EP release titled “Send the Signal” in December 2014. They played their ﬁrst live show in January, 2015 in Los Angeles CA, and decided to pursue Dance with the Dead as a live performance act and not just a studio duo. By November 2015, they were headlining shows in their ﬁrst European tour. February saw the anticipated release of their 5th release and 3rd full length record “The Shape” with great reception and buzz. By September of 2016 they were headlining shows in France, Belgium, Russia, Talin, Riga, Belarus, and the USA and started to incorporate live guitar in their show. In their live shows and studio recordings they use a hybrid of Soft synths and Hardware. In january of 2017, they released the full length record “B-Sides: Volume 1” which composed of some material that was either never ofﬁcially released by DWTD themselves, or unreleased material written between 2012-2016. As of early 2017 the duo has tours planned USA, Canada, France, Belgium, Germany, Iceland, Russia, Belarus, Riga, Talin, and Scotland. They are expected to release their 4th ofﬁcial full length in early 2018.
