Death is bringing their “Cease Fire/Give It Back Southern U.S. Tour 2017” to The Local 662 in St. Petersburg, Florida on Friday, February 10, with special guest Jacuzzi Boys. Death will be doing a meet & greet before the show at Daddy Kool Records at 3:00 PM. Also, on Tuesday, February 7 at 6:00 PM, there is a free screening of their 2012 documentary A Band Called Death at Sundial Muvico.

Death is a Detroit rock band formed in Detroit, Michigan in 1971 by brothers Bobby (bass, vocals), David (guitar), and Dannis (drums) Hackney. The trio started out as a funk band but switched to rock after seeing inspirational concerts by The Who and Alice Cooper. Music critic Peter Margasak retrospectively wrote that David “pushed the group in a hard-rock direction that presaged punk, and while this certainly didn’t help them find a following in the mid-70s, today it makes them look like visionaries.” They could possibly be considered one of the first punk bands in the world. The band broke up by 1977 but reformed in 2009 when the Drag City label released their 70s demos for the first time.
The album Spiritual | Mental | Physical was released in January 2011 and featured older songs recorded as demos and rehearsals between 1974 and 1976 which were never intended for release. An independent documentary film about the band titled A Band Called Death, directed by Jeff Howlett and Mark Covino, was released in 2012. The film had renowned film producer Scott Mosier (Clerks, Dogma, Chasing Amy, Good Will Hunting) and editor Rich Fox (Big Brother, Survivor, The Hammer, God Bless Ozzy Osbourne). In 2014, Death released their third studio album III, and in 2015 their most recent record, entitled N.E.W. was released.
Jacuzzi Boys Facebook bio:
The year, 2007. The Boys, Jacuzzi. Hatched inside a vulture’s nest, Jacuzzi Boys emerged from deep within the Florida wilds, three radioactive chicks cawing for their piece of electric rock pie.
With No Seasons (Florida’s Dying) they freaked their way through the swamps, a psycho stomp of a record, all hallucinations and hand claps. Glazin’ (Hardly Art) found a more polished sound. They installed AC units inside their mobile homes, found a way to turn neon into ice cubes. Now, with their third full-length, the self-titled Jacuzzi Boys, they’re going grand, building limestone monuments to those that boogied before them, while writing hypnotic ear worms by the light of a cigarette. Gone is the swamp-thing snarl. In it’s place, the indestructible cool of the casino slot-jockey with nothing to lose.
Recorded at Key Club Recording Co. in Benton Harbor, Michigan—same as 2010’s Glazin’—the new record takes full advantage of expert engineers Bill Skibbe and Jessica Ruffins’ sonic sandlot, with Kramer in charge of mastering. The end result? A smashing set of tunes as dazzling as a sparkler.
It’s like that movie you once saw. The one with the boy and the girl and the plastic lounger on the beach. “Be My Prism” was the invitation. “Black Gloves” and “Double Vision” the promise. “Dust” was the rising tide. “Rubble,” the dirty uncle. “Hotline” was the lightning storm, and “Ultraglide” was the ending, the part where he drove her home with the windows down.
You remember you liked it.
It stayed with you while you swam alone in your pool that night.
