DRESS THE DEAD, the band featuring ex-FORBIDDEN guitarist Craig Locicero, has announced the addition of singer Kayla Dixon (WITCH MOUNTAIN) to the group’s ranks.
“The first song we are releasing [with Kayla on vocals] is called ‘There Goes The Sun’. Produced by Robb Flynn [MACHINE HEAD] and recorded by Zack Ohren at Sharkbite Studios. It seemed appropriate as our first selection because it shows how massively diverseKayla is. This girl can hit ALL the gears, intensity, emotion, guttural, melodic and every register.Kayla simply has it all and ‘There Goes The Sun’ shows it.
Dixon said that she first learned about DRESS THE DEAD after “a mutual friend reached out” to her. “One of my first thoughts was, ‘I don’t know if I’m ready or even at an appropriate talent level to be replacing someone like Peter Dolving for these guys,'” she said. “I’d battled with the idea in my head for several months before finally reaching out. I had listened to and loved‘1969’ but what really hit me hard was when I heard the other songs that are still unreleased that they sent me. I had no idea how musically diverse this band would turn out to be!”
