Following on from their snarling slice of sinister alt-rock ‘Dark Hoss’ which gained support from Apple Music, TIDAL, Our Sound and Louder Than War, Deathretro hurtle into 2023 with the post-punk outing ‘Odd Day Off’ as the third track set to feature on the band’s next full length release due later this year.
Described by Guitarist ‘Adrian Ingham’ as “All the wrong Chords in the right order” ‘Odd Day Off’ roars through the speakers with ferocious intent. Anchored by a throbbing drum groove and driving bassline, layered with signature slithering riffs and call to arms vocals, the new outing sees ‘Deathretro’ step into a new year with style.
Vocalist Kie describes the track as “A look back to the past, with jealousy, hope and regret“.

Founded by Kie, Adrian and Boone, three friends from the villages of Cumbria, Deathretro forged a sound alive with the drama of the sprawling hillsides that surrounded them and the local party scene they grew up in. Now based in Manchester and accompanied by producer and drummer Grant Henderson, the band finally released their self-titled debut in 2021.
Crafting an infectious melee of rip-roaring guitars, raw vocal delivery and punchy disco-punk energy, the band’s debut gained praise from the likes ofLouder Than War who praised: ““a genuinely exhilarating experience… It could be argued that Deathretro are the country’s best kept musical secret”, before awarding the album a top 40 place in their Best Albums 2021 list. Likewise, in a four-star star review the Yorkshire Evening Post enthused the record as: “unyielding… a superb prospect.”
Proving that rest is only for the wicked, 2022 saw Deathretro rapidly follow their LP with a string of innovative releases: ‘Pistols’, ‘Exit Point’ and ‘Dark Hoss’ gearing up for their second studio album due for release in 2023.
Deathretro will also be joining the lineup for Independent Venue Week at The Snug Coffee House, Atherton alongside Hardwicke Circus on Thursday Feb 2nd.
