They’ve just completed a hugely successful stint alongside Ashestoangels and Farewell, My Love on The British Horror Story Tour which culminated in a featured 5K review in last week’s Kerrang Magazine. Now today marks the next step Manchester’s finest horror metal quintet The Dead XIII as they are celebrating the release of their debut album Catacombs

The Dead XIII


The album features the hit songs Frostbite, the title track Catacombs and XIII – with it’s anthemic call of “Thirteen ways to die!” which would sit well anywhere from a rock club to a horror festival. Catacombs combines the best aspects of the band’s influences like The Misfits and The Murderdolls and wraps them up with a whiskey soaked, modern Mancunian twist.



Anyone who would like to pick up a copy of Catacombs can do so at The Dead XIII’s online store on the following link – http://thedeadxiii.bigcartel.com/product/tickets-to-july-tour.

The Dead XIII have this to say:
“We are really excited to finally release our debut studio album, “Catacombs“. The Album demonstrates an evolution of the band and ourselves as people. After the last few years of touring and getting out and meeting our amazingly dedicated fan base we decided it was time to finally put it all together. Now we just can’t wait to for people to hear it, and let us know what they think”
