The Dead South - In Hell I'll Be in Good Company

Album

The Dead South's debut studio album Good Company was released in 2014 through the German record label Devil Duck Records, and led to extensive touring in Canada and Europe. The album contains a total of 14 tracks, including a rendition of Banjo Odyssey, which previously appeared on The Ocean Went Mad and We Were to Blame.

Additionally, The Dead South received in 2015 the "Road Gold" certification from Canadian Independent Music Association (CIMA) for over 25,000 ticket sales in a 12-month period. In presenting the award, CIMA President Stuart Johnston noted that the certification was given to recognize the talent and hard-working nature of the touring band.

In October 2016, a music video for "In Hell, I'll Be in Good Company" was released onto YouTube, retroactively fueling interest in Good Company. Though the song and respective album were released in 2015, they appeared in the Top 50 on the Billboard music charts and on the Top 20 on US iTunes overall chart during December 2017. It is The Dead South's most viewed video by a considerable margin, with over 273 million views.

Rachel Freitas of MusicExistence notes that the album's second track, Achilles, "has the signature banjo sound that The Dead South are known for, but the instrumentation is a bit lighter. What one will find quickly while listening to the LP is that The Dead South are master storytellers that really know how to bring a song to life".


Artist

The Dead South is a folk-bluegrass musical ensemble based in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. The band was initially formed in 2012 as a quartet by Nate Hilts (vocals, guitar, mandolin), Scott Pringle (guitar, mandolin, vocals), Danny Kenyon (cello, vocals) and Colton Crawford (banjo). Crawford left the band in 2015 and was replaced by studio musician Eliza Mary Doyle for several years. Crawford re-joined the band starting with the Voices In Your Head tour in mid-2018.

The band played live venues before releasing their debut five-song 2013 EP, The Ocean Went Mad and We Were to Blame. Their 2014 album Good Company was released by German label Devil Duck Records, and led to significant overseas touring for the next two years. Good Company's single "In Hell, I'll Be in Good Company", produced by Orion Paradis at SoulSound studio, was created along with a video on YouTube, and is credited as contributing to the breakthrough release for the band.

To date, The Dead South have released one EP - The Ocean Went Mad and We Were to Blame (2013), and three studio albums: Good Company (2014)Illusion and Doubt (2016), and Sugar & Joy (2019).

Lyrics

Dead love couldn't go no further
Proud of and disgusted by her
Push shove, a little bruised and battered
Oh Lord I ain't coming home with you

My life's a bit more colder
Dead wife is what I told her
Brass knife sinks into my shoulder
Oh babe don't know what I'm gonna do

I see my red head, messed bed,
tear shed, queen bee, my squeeze
The stage it smells, tells,
hell's bells, miss-spells
Knocks me on my knees
It didn't hurt, flirt, blood squirt,
stuffed shirt, hang me on a tree
After I count down, three rounds,
in hell I'll be in good company

Dead love couldn't go no further
Proud of and disgusted by her
Push shove, a little bruised and battered
Oh Lord I ain't coming home with you

My life's a bit more colder
Dead wife is what I told her
Brass knife sinks into my shoulder
Oh babe don't know what I'm gonna do

I see my red head, messed bed,
tear shed, queen bee, my squeeze
The stage it smells, tells,
hell's bells, miss-spells
Knocks me on my knees
It didn't hurt, flirt, blood squirt,
stuffed shirt, hang me on a tree
After I count down, three rounds,
in hell I'll be in good company

In hell I'll be in good company

Testo

L'amore morto non poteva andare oltre
Orgoglioso e disgustato da lei
Momento critico, un po' ferito e malconcio
Oh Signore, non vengo a casa con te

La mia vita è un po' più fredda
Moglie morte è quello che le ho detto
Il coltello d'ottone affonda nella mia spalla
Oh, piccola, non so cosa farò

Vedo la mia testa rossa, il letto incasinato
capanno a pezzi, l'ape regina, la mia presa
Il palco puzza, racconta,
campane d'inferno, incantesimi da miss
mi fanno crollare sulle ginocchia
Non ha fatto male, flirtare, spruzzo di sangue
maglietta zeppa, appendetemi ad un albero
Dopo che ho fatto il conto alla rovescia, tre volte
all'inferno sarò in buona compagnia

L'amore morto non poteva andare oltre
Orgoglioso e disgustato da lei
Momento critico, un po' ferito e malconcio
Oh Signore, non vengo a casa con te

La mia vita è un po' più fredda
Moglie morte è quello che le ho detto
Il coltello d'ottone affonda nella mia spalla
Oh, piccola, non so cosa farò

Vedo la mia testa rossa, il letto incasinato
capanno a pezzi, l'ape regina, la mia presa
Il palco puzza, racconta,
campane d'inferno, incantesimi da miss
mi fanno crollare sulle ginocchia
Non ha fatto male, flirtare, spruzzo di sangue
maglietta zeppa, appendetemi ad un albero
Dopo che ho fatto il conto alla rovescia, tre volte
all'inferno sarò in buona compagnia

All'inferno sarò in buona compagnia
