Dead Confederate does Conan, tours with Apollo Sunshine

October 22, 2008  |  12:16pm
The members of the Dead Confederate are definitely anything but deceased. The Athens, Ga. rockers have had a rollicking 2008, which has included putting out an album (Wrecking Ball) and EP, launching a huge tour and making their TV debut on Conan O'Brien (just last week). And, perhaps most importantly, the boys have recently launched an official "blahg." 

Still ready to rock, singer/guitarist Hardy Morris has released his home-spun take on "Get Out," a song off the band's self-titled studio EP. Check out the sleepy version here.

The band is currently on a West coast tour, and has recently added Apollo Sunshine to its line-up. The boys will then wind their way back around to the East coast, playing right up until Christmas.
