Deal Casino, DRMCTHR

Deal Casino is a call to action. A melodic plea for people to chase their dreams, risk it all and leave nothing on the table. Deal Casino formed around this idea when the four members Joe Parella (Guitar/Vocals), Jon Rodney (Bass), Mike Linardi (Drums) and Jozii Cowell (Guitar), who had been playing in bands together since middle school, dropped out of college and moved to Asbury Park, NJ in 2013. They quickly became a staple of the burgeoning music scene in NJ releasing three EP’s with producer Jon Leidersdorff. The Cocaine Love EP and The Runaways EP arrived in 2013, Heck EP in 2014 and the bands newest release the Nika EP was released in July 2015. Thoughtful songwriting, fits of emotion and fervent musicianship are staples of the Deal Casino sound. In an effort to make their recordings organic and capture these aesthetics, Heck EP and the new Nika EP were tracked live and incorporated the use of analog tape with minimal production techniques showcasing the true sound and abilities of the band. The band continues to write at a breakneck pace and their live show begs to be seen to get the true Deal Casino experience.

Having faced several challenges since the release of "Wonderlust," including member changes and at one point the near end of the band, DRMCTHR is back with a newfound confidence. A change in spelling of the band’s name marks a new era for DRMCTHR as it represents the loss they have experienced, but also a bolder, stronger representation of who they have become. The band has returned with a refined style and sound as they prepare to debut their full-length LP, "Hold Your Love." Containing 11-infectiously catchy tracks that were recorded at Valencia Recording and produced by DRMCTHR & Paul Leavitt, "Hold Your Love" is set for release on November 17, 2017 through Darkshore Music Group.
