Dead Man Winter To Make TV Debut On Conan With Acclaimed Album “Furnace”

Furnace, the emotionally charged sophomore album from Dead Man Winter (aka Dave Simonett), has received high praise since releasing in January. The 10 evocative new songs resonated with critics and fans alike, with positive coverage everywhere from Associated Press to Relix to Paste, who said “It’s this kind of musical range and lyrical brutality that makes an artist—someone who can find, and then articulate, something beautiful in the wake of destruction.” (See Highlights). Noisey recently featured the rollicking new “Destroyer” music video starring more than 20 artists from the Minneapolis music scene (view HERE).

“Dave Simonett has delivered something you almost never see in music: a gorgeous divorce album…You’d have to go back decades to find a more cathartic breakup album — perhaps as far as Bob Dylan’s ‘Blood on the Tracks…’” Associated Press

Dead Man Winter will make their network television debut on Conan on March 30. Celebrated for his thoughtful lyricism as the lead singer and songwriter of progressive bluegrass outfit Trampled By Turtles, Dave Simonett knows how to connect with an audience. Dead Man Winter allows Simonett the freedom to express even deeper sentiment with his most personal material yet. See Dead Man Winter perform a stripped-down acoustic session via Paste HERE.

“Anyone familiar with the Minnesota bluegrass band Trampled by Turtles might well be shocked by Dead Man Winter, frontman Dave Simonett’s solo alter ego.” – Rolling Stone Country

Furnace offers a sobering look at life after tribulation with frank lyricism that is often raw, sometimes venomous and always heartfelt. Though the subject matter is heavy, Simonett expertly weaves a Petty-style rock sensibility through these intensely personal confessionals, making for a surprisingly upbeat experience that will leave you with a sense of hope by album’s end. The cathartic result is an unwavering testament to Dave Simonett’s growth as an artist and individual. For more insight, see the in-depth cover story in his hometown weekly Minneapolis City Pages HERE. See Dead Man Winter tour dates below.
