Deadline Release Beau Hill Engineered Debut EP
April 22, 2012
France isn’t known as being a hotbed for hard rock activity, but Deadline are hoping to change that with the release of their debut EP called ‘Heading West’. Engineered by Beau Hill, the three song EP was released in April 2012 on Sliptrick Records (who recently signed the band). Digital copies of ‘Heading West’ are available on iTunes and Amazon, while physical copies can be found at www.deadlinehardrock.com and www.sliptrickrecords.com.
Deadline hit the scene in 2009, after two years of seeking out a steady line-up, ready and hard willing to knock down the listener with their blend of modern and classic hard rock anthems. Their sound is shaped by the influences of each band member — guitarist and founder Joris Beraud, guitarist Gabriel Lect, lead vocalist Arnaud Restoueix, bass player Sebastien Debbane and drummer Nicolas Ballu — ranging from the 70’s to current decade’s rock ‘n’ roll. The guitar work is inspired by the likes of Slash, Doug Aldrich and Steve Vai while the vocals are mainly influenced by bluesy hard rock singers such as Robert Plant and David Coverdale, as well as heavier rock singers like Ronnie James Dio.
In late 2010, US multi-platinum producer Beau Hill got in touch with Deadline through their MySpace page and the band jumped the chance to collaborate with the legendary producer who has worked with world-famous bands such as Ratt, Winger, Alice Cooper, Warrant, and Europe. After releasing their first hit single “Dance With Style”, followed by a second single “Heading West” (both engineered by Beau Hill), the band went over like a storm on several FM and internet radio shows in both Europe and the USA.
