Gently Tender are back with their new single, ‘Dead is Dead’.

The band – Sam Fryer, Will Doyle, Peter Mayhew, Adam Brown and Celia Archer – have also announced they’re heading out on tour as support for Celia’s ‘other’ band, The Big Moon.

Vocalist Sam says of the song: “Dead is Dead is a positive mantra on the subject of death. I’m speculating the destiny of the human soul – how we may all connect and where that might be after death. I’m using my voice to its full potential in this song, like a rallying call. I’m saying – maybe we’re not alone in death – there is part of our consciousness that does carry on in some form. I fluctuate on this subject matter, but the majority of the time I do believe this. I think it’s important to be aware of death at all times, I think of my own death most days, but not in a morbid way – it helps me appreciate and refocus on what I’m trying to do – to know if what I’m doing is worth it. It’s a hopeful song, I’m excited to play it live.”
