Dead Poet Society
Dead Poet Society has to be one of the most highly-educated bands of all time. After all, the four members are distinguished alumni of Berklee College of Music in Boston. Upon graduation, they relocated to California to work out what to do with the profusion of influences from their education. That musical puzzle resolved itself. On their 2022 debut ‘!’ (pronounced ‘the exclamation album’), Dead Poet Society served up rugged rock with hefty nods to Muse and Royal Blood. After touring the United States with Biffy Clyro, the band headed to Europe last summer with a new generation of punk rockers. And they made quite an impression.
