Stardeath & White Dwarfs is an experimental rock band from Norman, Oklahoma. They are best known for the EP That's Cool and the single "Toast & Marmalade For Tea." Stardeath & White Dwarfs have released two studio albums, their latest is 2014's Wastoid. Currently the band is preparing to go on a mini tour in November.
Founded in 2004 by singer/guitarist Dennis Coyne, Stardeath and White Dwarfs have gone through several lineup changes over the years. But Coyne and company continued to press forward with their unique style of psychedelic experimental rock music. The band made their mark in 2009 when they collaborated with The Flaming Lips, Henry Rollins and Peaches on the cover album The Flaming Lips and Stardeath and White Dwarfs with Henry Rollins and Peaches Doing The Dark Side of the Moon. Along with their debut LP The Birth, things were looking bright for Stardeath & White Dwarfs.
Wastoid is Stardeath & White Dwarfs second studio album and it was released in 2014 on Federal Prism Records. The new LP showcases Dennis Coyne's progression as a songwriter and the continuing exploration of the band's neo-psychedelic sound. Standout tracks include the angry distorted "Birds of War," the trippy and wistful "Sleeping Pills and Ginger Ale," the haunting "Chrome Children" and the melancholy "Luminous Veil." It is a welcomed return to the studio for Stardeath & White Dwarfs who have been gone far too long.
