OXFORD — The metal band Dead Season, scheduled to perform opening night at the Oxford County Fair, will release its newest CD, “Life Death,” on Monday, Sept. 14, at all Bull Moose stores.

For the past five years, Dead Season has consistently outsold most nationally known bands at Bull Moose while maintaining its status as the top-selling band in the region. “Looking back at Bull Moose sales for the year 2008, Dead Season was at No. 1 and No. 2 for our top local band CDs sold. Number 1 was ‘When Everything’s Lost’ and No. 2 was ‘Rise,’ said Jim Pinfold of Bull Moose.

“What is even more impressive,” he said, “is that ‘When Everything’s Lost’ also finished fifth in the Top 10 overall CD sales at Bull Moose, finishing just four spots behind Metallica’s ‘Death Magnetic’ and beating out Disturbed’s ‘Indestructible’ as well as the latest releases from Lil’ Wayne and Radiohead.”

Hailing from Oxford, Dead Season has been performing since 2003. Founded by two brothers, Ian Truman on vocals and Matt Truman on guitar, the band later added Andy Hackett on drums and Steve Church on bass. The band’s debut full-length CD, “Rise,” was released in August 2006.

Dead Season will perform at the Oxford County Fair on Sunday, Sept. 13. Bull Moose personnel will be on hand at the concert, making copies of “Life Death” available a day before the official release.
