Local Band Churns Out Album

“The Electric Haze”. the new album from the local act Dead Poets Society, demonstrates the musical talents of Wa, Raven Nightshado, and Tim Gibson.

Their singles, “the electric haze”, “so much beauty”, “fire bolt”, and “the vast unknown” have been selling strongly on for months.

The new album combines surprisingly diverse influences including East Asian, Middle Eastern, techno pop with a strong dance beat, and electronic sampling from pop culture influences including movies, television, literature and even video games.

The band has been known around The Dalles area for several years, and has been producing concerts at The Dalles Armory.

They’ve been performing unique versions of popular 1980s new wave songs such as Soft Cell’s “Tainted Love”, and Gary Numan’s “Cars.”

Dead Poets Society also recently made a licensing agreement with Espresso Lingo for the rights to use a special version of “fire bolt” from the new album for a radio spot now appearing on 102.3 FM in The Dalles.
