The Dead Rabbitts are a metalcore super group from Phoenix, AZ. The band is comprised of Craig Mabbitt (Escape the Fate), Alex Torres (Eyes Set to Kill, Greeley Estates, Alesana), Agustus Cryns, TJ Bell (Escape the Fate, Motionless in White), and Chris Julian. The music is largely reminiscent of Mabbitt’s previous groups Blessthefall and The Word Alive.
The Dead Rabbitts teamed up with To Write Love on Her Arms and PledgeMusic to release their first EP, Edge of Reality. Through PledgeMusic, fans were able to pre-order the EP along with extra items such as signed CD’s, posters, concert tickets, and more. The eight songs (and one bonus track) were produced by Caleb Shomo (formerly of Attack Attack! and current vocalist of Beartooth) at Studio Records in Columbus, OH. The record shows a huge amount of creativity and is filled with Mabbitt’s meaningful and well thought out lyrics.
After the release, The Dead Rabbitts set off on The Pizza Party Tour with Get Scared, Rob the Cartel, and As Thick As Thieves. Coming off of an impressive year, the group caught interest of Tragic Hero Records who signed the band and released their first full-length album, Shapeshifter, produced by Andrew Wade (A Day To Remember, Motionless in White)in Ocala, Florida. Their newest album, This Emptiness, was released April 2017 and is also available for listening on Tragic Hero Records.
