Dead Alright Highlight the Pull of Pop Punk in New Single “Dust Falls”

Dead Alright is the solo project of Brand New Lungs frontman Louis-Charles Berthiaume of Montreal. “Dust Falls” is one of the newest singles, preceded by “Parasites,” “Strong Enough to Fail,” and “Smoke and Mirrors.” The latest release, “Playing with Fire” is also available now.

With all of the new music offered by Dead Alright already this year, it leads us to think that an EP or LP might be in the works. One thing is certain, “Dust Falls” and the surrounding body of work definitively prove the irresistible pull of the pop-punk genre, with Berthiaume’s upbeat and fun rock riffs and driving drums providing the foundation for authentic, profound, and impactful lyrics. 

We anticipate that if you are a fan of Millencolin, No Use For A Name, and A Wilhelm Scream that you’ll want to get your hands on all the latest Dead Alright has to offer. We might also point you to Washington D.C. area artists like Ben DeHan and Keep Your Secrets if this is in your wheelhouse.

On October 29th, Olney Theatre Center wrapped its run of Prince Gomolvilas’ ‘The Brothers Paranormal.’ The disconcerting, borderline terrifying production was co-directed by Olney’s Senior Associate Artistic Director, Hallie Gordon, and Velz herself. The show was one of the spookiest times I have had in a theatre in quite some time. It was evident that the show was a well researched labor of love.
