Eken is Dead
EKEN IS DEAD (say it like wreck, not eek) is a Los Angeles, CA based four-piece hard rock alternative/metal act. Since it's inception at the end of 2007, EKEN IS DEAD has been on a mission of absolute domination. In two years, members Eric Almanza, Vic Arevalo, Jack Espinoza, and Chris Navarrete have earned a well deserved reputation throughout the scene based on professionalism and commitment to excellence. Whether an intimate local show or a packed House of Blues, EKEN IS DEAD has consistently brought their high intensity and charismatic presence to every single one of their 115+ shows. In addition to the relentless live schedule for which they have toured both regionally and internationally, EKEN IS DEAD has independently produced an EP, "The Dead Ascend", full length LP, "Amendment.", and videos for the songs "Condition" and "Lights Out". Even then, the promotional efforts are non stop with the introduction of an ever expanding merchandise line, thousands of giveaways, and an online presence that grows stronger by the day. EKEN IS DEAD's "No Retreat, No Surrender" attitude in all they take on is evident as everyday is treated as an opportunity. They continue to grow musically while sharing stages with the biggest acts all over the region and turning on new listeners, all without ever compromising their integrity as musicians or humans. It is this commitment that sets them apart.
