Dead Register is a heavy, genre-bending, tortured, gloomy, pretentious, dual-bass power trio fronted by husband and wife: M. Chvasta (vocals, bass VI, bass) and Avril Che (88 keys of synthetic low-end bass, high-end textures, backing vocals, live visuals, all band artistic media and music videos), along with R. Garcia (drum kit).
Est. 2013 and fueled by a strong DIY ethos, Dead Register has produced four music videos in-house and three critically acclaimed record releases on their own independent AVR label. Dead Register has been actively touring the U.S. and Canada in support of their »Fiber« (2016) and »Captive« (2018) records.
Dead Register has been charming live audiences with undeniably catchy hooks while eviscerating them with downtuned bludgeoning riffs and hypnotic atmosphere. Dead Register’s sound has paired well as live support for Author & Punisher, Wovenhand, Agalloch, Pinkish Black, Vowws, Tombs, Alcest, Order of the Owl, Pleasures, Wolvhammer, King Dude, Set And Setting, Hexxus, The Atlas Moth, The Body, SubRosa, and many more. Dead Register has been described by show-goers as “Peter Murphy in a His Hero Is Gone shirt”, “Swans covering Godflesh with Brendan Perry [Dead Can Dance] singing”, and “Goth Power Ballads, bro! Intense!”
