Deathrow Tull

Deathrow Tull release new track, to play benefit show for Orlando night club victims on 7/22

Live hip-hop bands are truly a diamond a dozen nowadays, making a new single from NYC's Deathrow Tull all the more special.  The Hip-hop/Soul band's first release since 2013, "Fire (like we do)" is a fast-paced joy-ride through music old and new. Clocking in at over six minutes, the heavily danceable track uses it's length to its advantage, managing to enfold genres ranging from soul, hip-hop, and reggae all into one song. It has some rock leanings too, mostly contributed by a Tom Morello-esque guitar part that stays in the background much of the track, only to suddenly break out into an out of sight solo right past the song's mid-way line. Adding to the guitar part's references, on Friday the 22nd Deathrow Tull is taking part in "Pulse Against the Machine," a benefit show for the victims of the shooting of the Orlando club, where they'll play Rage covers to finish off the night. Check out their latest track below. — Henry Solotaroff-Webber
