Four-piece Dead Ceremony have deservedly been tagged "special act to watch live", owing to a unique blend of balladry with clashing dance sounds, fused amongst pop, blues and R&B arrangements. The Kent-based quartet free another impressive single today, the first to be taken from forthcoming EP Heartache, entitled "All This Noise".

Originally the solo brain-child behind the Dead Ceremony project, Christopher Stewart's slides an aching vocal between layered instrumentation. "Finding the strength and clarity to ignore the fears, expectations, assumptions and advice that surround you," is the central theme of "All This Noise", he tells us. "Focus instead on the truth that love is all that really matters and that everything else is just noise."
