Dead Letter Opener biography
Forming in 2005, the three-piece wrote and rehearsed until 2007 which saw the release of their independently recorded, produced and released EP Certified Nerdcore. Shortly after its release Dead Letter Opener hit the live front, capturing listeners imaginations all across Southeast Queensland and supporting numerous nationally acclaimed hard rock and metal acts as well as some international ones, namely The Dillinger Escape Plan, Cradle of Filth and Turisas.

2008/09 saw the band increasing their national exposure with the release of a video for the track Yours and What?s Mine and the beginning of what was going to end up a lot of traveling to promote their sound throughout Australia. They also began writing tracks for their first full-length album Lumen which they began recording early 2009. Again all 100% independently funded by the band and mixed and produced with the help of Aidan Barton at Sovereign Studios in Perth, the album was released later that year. Mastered by Jochem Jacobs from Textures at Split Second Sound in Amsterdam, Lumen has been described as a satisfyingly dynamic voyage of progressive heaviness, perfectly encapsulating the bands powerful and unique sound.

2010 has seen the band doing another load of traveling around Australia to promote their latest release. The next priority for the guys is to play some shows outside of Australia. The possibility of touring to New Zealand, Malaysia, Singapore, North America, Canada and Europe are all currently being investigated. The goal for Dead Letter Opener now is to play as many shows as is financially permitted, and to continue writing and honing their diverse progressive metal sound.
