Here’s the amazing bands we’re working with on Back From The Dead Records…
SECOND IN LINE
UK Skate Punk.
Originally formed in 2002, this lot have played all across the country taking their infectious blend of skate punk melodies with a huge love of 80’s films. FFO: Bad Religion, Snuff, NoFx, Guns N Wankers.
LOCAL MAD MAN
London based hardcore punk rock
We’ve known this lot for a fair few years now and their current line up is their strongest yet. Armed with some incredible new tunes, this London based four piece are a perfect fit for the label. They love beer and ice hockey! FFO: Slapshot, Comeback Kid, Rotting Out.
London based jangly punk rock.
One of the UK’s classic punk rock bands. They’ve been around for ages but also dead for ages too, so they really do fit the bill for us. Think jangly punk rock tunes and fun lyrics. Stupidly catchy stuff!

Proper street punk!
Incredible street punk band that hail from Toronto. Formed in 2014 and currently playing as a three piece, these boys play straight up street punk, its raw, its dirty and its just what you’d want from a street punk record.
Garage punk rock!
The Thingz hail form Long Beach and play an incredibly infectious blend of garage punk rock with a real surf vibe about it. Having released a handful of albums on vinyl, we are so very excited to be able to release them in the UK. With some of the most fun songs we’ve heard, The Thingz are a band you can’t help but love!
Perfect pop punk!

UK Punk Rock!
Back in the late 90’s Wood came together to make some music based on light hearted punk like The Vandals and NOFX mixed with rock bands from this side of the Atlantic, Therapy?, Wildhearts and 3 Colours Red etc. Wood songs are all based on real life experience, be that practising in a disused mobile classroom across the road from a Property Management & Letting Agency, going to see Propagandi in Sheffield, to postmen dropping elastic bands on their rounds! All the important issues are covered.

Yeah grunge punk rockers. This lot were active in Reading in the 2000’s and we formed a close bond at the time, that still lives on. This is a collection of their recorded output, some live tracks and a couple of unreleased bonus tracks at the end. Some might call it the ultimate collection, we call it Zusammen.
