Dead End Lane (DEL) is a female-fronted punk band from Baltimore, MD. After a few lineups and shows, originating member and guitarist/writer T met vocalist Erin Demise and DEL began its current foray into the punk scene. With liked-minded influences ranging from The Misfits, The Nekromantix, Rancid, The Distillers, The Horror Pops, Blood For Blood and Balzac, the two hit it off immediately. Also avid fans of the 1950s, fans at DEL shows can expect to hear at least one 50’s influenced song or a revamped 50’s cover.
DEL joined forces with Aussie bassist, Matt, on Halloween of 2009. His extremely energetic stage presence, penchant for punk rock and talkative, easy-going personality made him a perfect fit. Knocking down bass riffs on his custom hollow-body Gibson, look out for Matt running and jumping all over the place.
Joe is the newest addition to DEL, signing on as a drummer in August 2010. Arriving with a Night of The Living Dead shirt, his classical training and collective and loyal personality, made him a great addition to the 4 equal parts of DEL.
Over the last 2 years, DEL has been recognized for their energetic stage presence and entertaining and eclectic crowd interaction.
On 10/28/13, DEL's lead singer Erin "Demise" Maltese, was one of the back-up vocalists, along with Ava Cherry (David Bowie), to sing on the newest Misfits EP, specifically, on Science Fiction Double Feature.
Having opened for national acts such as The Misfits, Marky Ramone and Michale Graves, The Adicts, JuiceheaD, The World/Inferno Friendship Society, The Independents, The Business, The Creepshow, The Pietasters, and Calabrese, DEL's exposure to the local scene and national punk scenes continues to grow.
