Ned and the Dirt Premiere New Concept EP

LA-based, self-proclaimed “Graveyard Indie Rock” band Ned and the Dirt are streaming their powerful new concept EP, Wild Pack: Haunt These Woods, exclusively on Buzzbands.LA. CLICK HERE to listen to the incredible 5-song collection now! The dynamic trio will also be celebrating the EP release with a very special show in their adopted hometown on March 4th at The Mint.

The band has garnered praise from KCRW, who announced the EP and premiered “We Scream Party” (CLICK HERE) saying, “There just aren’t enough concept EPs out there.  Anyone can do a concept album – it gives you lots of room to tell your longer story… But to limit yourselves to just a couple of songs while still giving a larger scope to your storytelling – that’s a challenge!…The trio spin their tales with a bright, crunchy brand of indie rock, reminiscent of the Hold Steady or Kings of Leon, alternating between howling rockers and plaintive ballads.”
Paste Magazine premiered the follow-up single “Edgemont,” a heart-wrenching track about the trauma and grief surrounding the death of frontman Ned Durrett’s brother. CLICK HERE to listen.

Wild Pack: Haunt These Woods, out March 4th, is the result of a combination of things. The first incarnation of Ned and The Dirt was breaking up, as they were simultaneously dealing with their 22-year-old friend and former drummer’s crumbling marriage and addiction issues. Ned Durrett was also struggling with the fact that he was a year removed from his hometown in South Carolina. He was facing inner turmoil, not about the move, but about his lack of effort to maintain his connections with everyone he had left behind and was realizing that this was something that could have stemmed from the passing of his brother.
