The Dead Stray are a 3 piece alternative rock band hailing from Kent, UK, formed of Brad King on vocals and guitar, Nik Jennings on guitar and Pieter Verbeelen on drums.

Their love and adoration for everything from the delta blues, the psychedelic sounds of the 60s and 70s, and right up to the modern day garage rock and blues bands can be clearly heard in thee music. Taking influences from these periods, but with the modern twist they infuse, their sound blurs the lines between gritty, soulful  music and commercial and accessible viability.

Since forming nearly 2 years ago they have released 2 EPs to date. The first being "Three Years", which they self-released and gained them their first initial fan base and support. The second “Tales” (Released June 2013), which was recorded at Toerag Studios with Grammy winning producer Liam Watson (The White Stripes, The Kills, The Soledad Brothers)

They have performed many gigs around Kent and London, including The 100 Club, The Dublin Castle, The Fiddlers Elbow and many more. They have also travelled to Belgium and Holland where they, amongst other gigs, headlined the Scream Tour and played at the WesSummer Breeze festival in Holland.
