Sebelum ini mereka ada membuat kenyataan yang akan datang ke KK untuk promosi. Akan tetapi mereka terpaksa membatalkannya atas sebab yang tidak dapat dielakkan. dan kini mereka sudah mengesahkannya semula menerusi sosial media mereka bahawa 28 April ini mereka akan memijakkan kaki ke Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.

MUNGKIN, anak anak muzik zaman now tidak mengenali band DEAD MUSHROOM ini. Dan mungkin ada juga yang dah follow fb band 90’s yang dikenali dengan muzik grunge ini. Yang pasti, mereka adalah antara band grunge yang mewarnai muzik tanahair di Malaysia.

Sedikit info mengenai band Dead Mushroom ini..

“..Formed in 1995, with influences of the 90s rock band and ol’skool rock & roll, this Kuala Lumpur’s Modern Rock band consists of: 

– MIKE ROY (bass)
– ZUL (drums)
– SHIDI (guitar)
– POJI (guitar)
– FAIZ (vocals)

Been active in local underground scene since 1996, they released their first split-demo with another local indie band and acclaimed as one of the best demo of the year in The Sun Blasting Concept readers’ poll. Also in that year, with their own composition, they came out as the champion for nationwide Pepsi Challenge – Young Discovery (equivalent to Rentak Juara and Malaysian Idol combined – without the SMS votes, of course) that was organized by Pepsi, AIMM and TV3.

In 1997 they released their first major label album under Rock Central Records and distributed by BMG. Co-produced with Ramli MS, who was the Executive Producer, the album was nominated for 4 categories in Anugerah Industri Muzik 1998:

Best New Artist in a Group
Best Local English Album
Best Engineered Album
Best Video Clip

Well known for their great songwriting and outstanding live performance, they bagged in various award categories in local music fanzines and magazines (ROTTW, Konsert, etc), among them:

Best New Artist/Group 1998
Best Video Clip 1998

“READ MY MIND” was selected as the best video clip of the month in Anugerah Video Muzik 1998.  Been in a hiatus for almost 6 years, the band made a comeback in 2008, still in-demand for performances all over Malaysia with their brand new single titled “NOWHERE”. Scheduled to hit the studio for their new EP in 2009 and pre-production is already in progress. “All Killers, No Fillers” is their mantra for songwriting. 

Tiket dah boleh di beli dan jangan lupa bawa extra cash tanggal 28 April nanti. Rasanya Dead Mushroom akan bawa merch untuk dijadikan cendera kenangan kedatangan mereka ke Kota Kinabalu nanti. Dapatkan tiket PRESALE yang boleh di dapati daripada agen agen sah.
