Coming off the high of their 30-day first European tour in support of Ektomorf, metal band Dead Horse Trauma continues their heavy-handed march to success with headlining U.S. tour, “Barrels of LaughTour”, with direct support from Lydia Can’t Breathe. Each date presents a VIP meet and greet option for fans which includes a poster and VIP laminate.  Selling out multiple dates of the European tour, Dead Horse Trauma will annihilate the 29 cities on the Barrels of LaughTour in support of their latest album LIFE, featuring tight metal riffs with Eric Davidson’s vocals slamming through the echoing background synth. 
After the release of 2016 full-length album LIFE under Sony/The Orchard, Dead Horse Trauma is on a rapid rise to the top as your new favorite metal band. With a striking hook and intense music/lyric video, single “Left Unsaid” comes out swinging on the topic of addiction as the leading track on Life, and can be heard on Sirius/XM, commercial, college, and online radio stations nationwide. Dead Horse Trauma has a way of drawing in fans thirsty for something different with their “high energy live show as well as an undeniable work ethic” (Rock Revolt), as the band draws large and intense crowds at every performance. 

“Dead Horse Trauma has separated themselves from the pack with a high energy live show” – Rock Revolt

“Dead Horse Trauma is one of the best any kind of metal band to grace the music world in the last decade.” – Uncivil Revolt

“…they may just be the smartest working band around” – DM Cityview

About Dead Horse Trauma

Spawned from Des Moines, Iowa, Dead Horse Trauma represents the awakening from the tactics used on society every day as they’re lulled to sleep by media, religion, politics and constant distraction. The release of eight records created a slow, powerful fire over the past decade and built a sturdy foundation of experience for the five members to deliver a unique metal sound upon. Their overall success includes sharing the stage with Stone Sour, Mushroomhead, Otep, Spineshank and Sevendust. Dead Horse Trauma constantly pushes boundaries, including bringing fans behind the scenes and into the studio with a documentary of the process behind their newest studio album, LIFE (Sony). Dead Horse Trauma is Eric Davidson (vocals), Seth Peters (guitar), Jayson Kempf (guitar), Brian Carter (bass), and Garrett Dewald (drums).
