Friday, December 11, 2020 – Los Angeles rock duo Dead Posey have today released their latest unplugged EP “Malfunction X Broken Down” via Sumerian Records/Position Music. With haunting vocals and hypnotic guitar, the EP features acoustic interpretations of their “Malfunction” EP released earlier this year. The band have also released the first music video off the EP for their chilling cover of Depeche Mode’s classic hit “Never Let Me Down Again”.

Speaking on “Malfunction X Broken Down”, Dead Posey shares:
“While working from home during the crazy year that has been 2020, we wanted to show a different flavour of the “Malfunction” EP released earlier this year. Our music has had a good deal of production bells and whistles baked into it, so we wanted people to enjoy these songs in their rawest form with our two voices, an acoustic guitar and not much else. For good measure we threw in a cover of one of our favourite songs from one of our favourite bands – “Never Let Me Down Again” by Depeche Mode. We wanted to show the song in a totally different light – sultrier, moodier and more dream-like. Turn the lights down, light some candles and enjoy.”
