Another slow update.
Currently a lot of downloads may be down. I'll have to look into getting them back up for whoever might still be interested or hadn't got them. The hosting company decided to merge with another and I just looked at the packages they offered as a 'replacement' to what I had prior to the merger. Needless to say, its not worth taking them up on their 'revised' hosting plans which are a joke.
No new info on the DVD, still looking/waiting to be released.
Frank is currently working on his first full length release which is slated for an early (January) 2007 release.
Tom and Julz's band The Quiet Kill is starting to take shape, they have found a singer and are currently doing a bit of touring. An ep is planned to be released later in the year.
Ben may be out of action for a little bit but will surely be back playing soon.

I suppose there should be at least a periodic update, it has been a long time. On the Million Dead forefront, things are pretty quiet. Keep checking for the ever elusive DVD. The aim is to have it released at some point, I unfortunately don't know when, hopefully a little later in the year. The good news is the clips I have seen from the Underworld show were looking pretty damn good.
Some of the downloads may have been or may be down currently, they're being worked on and should shortly be up again. Hosting services can be fun sometimes.
Frank has been about and around. He's poised to release his debut EP on Monday the 15th so get out and find a copy. More dates later on in the year if you misssed him on his recent tour.
Tom and Julz are still working on their project with Rich (drummer). Hopes of touring later in the years are on the cards.
Ben can be found drumming in Palehorse and possibly some other bands.
An update. For those that do not know Frank has been going around solo doing acoustic shows. He also has a site at www.frank-turner.com where you can check out where he will be playing and hear some songs.
On the Million Dead front, all indications point towards the DVD still coming out, Check stores perhaps in January (a projected date, subject to some change of course.) In the meantime I'm sure some of you would like to see the video for To Whom It May Concern. A QuickTime version of it can be downloaded from right here (rick click save as or crtrl click and save source.)
All goodthings must come to an end. Unfortunately for us that good thing is the main focus of this site. After 245 shows (to date and more to come) Million Dead will be parting ways after the forthcoming September tour. Very sad news indeed. I hope that all of you can and will be able to catch one of the shows and bid the band farewell.
It's been a fun journey.

Bad news for those attending Manchester on Wednesday, the date has apparently been cancelled. This is due to a problem at Jilly's, which is closed at the moment.
