Emo-rockers Dead Leaves premiere poignant debut album, ‘Vultures’—listen

Cleveland-based Dead Leaves are releasing their debut album, Vultures, on Friday, Aug. 25 via Take This To Heart Records, and today they’re streaming the album early—and sharing the story about how their powerful, vulnerable debut came to be.

“The entire record is about vulnerability,” vocalist Elliott Blair explains. “Every song on the new record touches on some form of vulnerability. For example, ‘Talk Me Down’ is about building trust back up with someone that you’ve lost trust with. ‘Sunrise’ is about alzheimer's and losing touch with yourself; being vulnerable in the grand sun.”

The vulnerability isn’t anything new to Dead Leaves, who have always been boldly honest in their offerings. For the band, it’s their sonic delivery that has been discovered and solidified on this release.

“It wasn’t intentional at first. We were playing with a couple new songs that we had written and decided after one or two songs that that was the direction we wanted to go,” Blair says.
