People Like You are proud to present “GETTING SERIOUS” which features what are probably the best female vocals to be found in Punk Rock! Period! It’s hard to find a rival to Liz’s powerfully warm, spine-tingling vocal lines…. Multi layered harmonies, melodies to die for and one hit after another. This is the real deal!

DEADLINE exploded onto the London Punk scene in 2001 and haven’t looked back
since. They played their first gig less than 4 years ago… Yet so much has happened since!

With 4 European tours, 1 American tour, countless UK gigs, 2 full length albums released worldwide, 2 singles, 2 split albums and numerous contributions to various compilations under their belt, they are probably the hardest working band in the scene right now and have achieved more in a few years than a lot of bands do in a lifetime. Their previous albums have received rave reviews from both underground fanzines and more “mainstream” magazines in the UK, Europe and even the USA.

DEADLINE are an experienced live act and they have gained a reputation for their excellent live performances! A typical DEADLINE gig has heaving crowds dancing and singing along. There’s no room for “holier than thou” attitudes and segregation. The band and the audience always share a special moment, one to remember. They have played from small pub backrooms to crowds of thousands, from New York to Prague's, from Marseilles to Berlin, they know the roads like the back of their hands and have gained an established following. They are regular features at Punk Festivals such as Punk & Disorderly - Berlin or Wasted - UK where they consistently go down a storm and always prove to be a tough act to follow.

DEADLINE have been invited to play with some bigger names on the scene including RANCID, DROPKICK MURPHYS & THE DISTILLERS to name but a few and swelling numbers at their own headline shows proves they were a hit!

“Getting Serious” is DEADLINE’s best collection of songs to date; 14 hard hitting, yet tuneful tracks which more than live up to the praise that is being heaped on DEADLINE. To quote Tim Brooks from Maximum R’n’R, Deadline “reminded me of when I first heard Punk Rock and my life changed forever”. Make sure you catch’em live when they play a town near you in 2005!
