New Album 'Glitter & Gold' Celebration Sep 22nd


AN INTIMATE EVENING- Celebrating the release of 'GLITTER & GOLD'

We'd like to invite you to join us for a very special night with Dead Rock West on September 22nd to celebrate the forthcoming release of our new record, 'Glitter & Gold’. We will be playing a very special and intimate show at McCabes Guitar Shop in Santa Monica, CA playing songs from the new album, and some of your favorites from our catalog. We will be joined on this all-acoustic night by Phil Parlapiano, Geoff Pearlman and David J Carpenter. There will be no opening act, just an intimate version of Dead Rock West and a full night of music!

There will be special Download ‘All Access’ passes available on that night only that will allow you to download a high definition version of the album along with special digital artwork. You will also have the opportunity to pre-order your copy of the CD before anyone else does. The CD packages are being done in a very special way, by our dear friends at Stoughton Printers. They are the best in the business and have been working closely with us to get it just right. And we will have some very special VERY limited edition hand screened posters from the legendary poster artist Scrojo on sale as well.

The support you have shown us matters and we thank you. Come and join us. We can't wait to share these songs with you! - DRW XO


This new record, ‘Glitter and Gold’ is a companion record of sorts to our ‘It’s Everly Time!’. It contains some of our other favorite Everly Bothers songs as well as a tune that I wrote with Exene Cervenka of X. The record is packed with guests like Dave Alvin who blew up a guitar amp while recording one of his solos, and it was the last time that we made music with Cindy’s brother Rob Wasserman before his very untimely passing. We have been performing ‘Long Time Gone’ on tour this last year in Rob’s honor and now we are finally able to share the recorded version of him and DRW doing the song with you all. 

We are also very excited that this record is being released on our own imprint, Angel Flight Recording Co. We decided to forego paying for all the regular avenues of promotion and just sell it directly to you, our fans, via our website and at shows. We have special packages planned and have been lucky to have the great poster artist Scrojo involved in the artwork for the album and extra bits. 

We are very proud of this record, and we can’t wait to share it with you!"

*IMPORTANT UPDATE: Due to the Pre-Order service issues we have been forced to delay the pre-order date from Sept 23rd until Sept 27th. Our huge apologies. We are having serious difficulty with the service that we had been intending for the Pre-Order. It became evident that it was incapable of delivering an easy and quality customer service that you all deserve (in fact it massively let us down at the last minute). So, if you will bare with us a few extra days you will be able to pre-order our new album on the 27th. The CD manufacturing hasn’t been effected by all of this and we are still on track to be release the record in Late October, so we will let you know as soon as the pre-order is live and available!

THANK YOU for all your patience! - DRW xo




We are excited to announce that the first track from the new album ‘More Love’ is being premiered today on the LA TIMES website.

“It isn't necessary to know whatever real-life details inspired "Boundless Fearless Love," the first track on the forthcoming album from L.A. roots music duo Dead Rock West. What matters is the spirit of urgency and openness to embracing whatever lies ahead. The jangly, hard-driving tune sung by Cindy Wasserman and Frank Lee Drennen was produced by John Doe, founding member of long-running L.A. punk band X…” - Randy Lewis
