They are an avant-garde rock band founded and fronted by U.S. Maple mastermind, guitarist/singer Todd Albert Rittmann. The band powered onto the scene in 2009 with their debut Mother of Curses. After two years on the road and recording the band released their new album on Tizona Records.

From their press:

Chicago sonic juggernaut Dead Rider have spent the last year touring, recording, and staring into the abyss of discordance, and are now prepared to present the world with The Raw Dents, the follow up to their darkly psychedelic debut album, Mother of Curses. Featuring a transformed lineup, The Raw Dents continues the band’s trajectory of balancing fresh syncopated rhythmic ideas with bold, and sometimes abrasive sonic textures, but the sound has evolved into a total juxtapositions between harmony and noise, chaos and groove, bombast and space, beauty and disaster. Though the emphasis is on songwriting here, the players are free to subvert. The hooks are designed more like events than simple repeating motifs, harmony and dissonance are embraced with equal measure.

The show begins at 9p in Bloomfield.
