Death Virginia is the nickname adopted by five musicians who look to further themselves as one, and rely only on each other for support. With only a vague notion of home, Death Virginia would prefer to wake up somewhere new every morning. They have pushed through the north with their wide open performances and calculating live show. July and August of 2006 saw DVA take to the confederate states for their 'Death in the South' tour that challenged them to make it through in peak heat and only a tent to sleep in at night.
The end of 2006 saw great success during the 'Thanks Forgiven' tour in November. Through New York, Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania and back home to West Virginia DVA traveled with 'Kettle Black' accompanying them as their anthem. Its lyrics and process put into action the machine that would create the songs and convictions comprising their debut EP, 'Dear Brothers.' The EP's content took them out in March 2007 for the 'Stay and Fight' Tour of the eastern United States.
Barring nomadic tendency, Death Virginia lives in Morgantown, West Virginia in their practice space. They have made a committment to their music and work each day with the next practice in mind. For Death Virginia, their home is not a cold place; it is a mountain. It is lending a hand to one another and picking up each other's pieces. Morgantown West Virginia is where you can find a group; five people committed to each other, who can rely on the one with whom they share a bench in a crowded van. Collectively they have found a refuge in music, taken arms and christened their trials: Death Virginia.
