The Dead Leaves are a band from Melbourne, Australia. In January 2011, the band began recording their debut album at BJB Studios in Sydney, Australia, with producers Scott Horscroft (The Presets, Birds of Tokyo, The Panics) and Eric J Dubowsky (Art vs Science, Weezer). The album is due for release in September 2011. The band is now signed to Liberation Records, home to The Temper Trap and Little Red. Guest vocalists on the album include Gin Wigmore (‘Album of the Year' New Zealand Music Awards 2010) on “This Living” and guest vocalist Emma Louise on “Changing”. Emma is an exciting up-and-coming artist whose new EP “Insomnia” was produced by Mark Myers of The Middle East.

The Dead Leaves’ music is a raw and passionate collision of the dark brooding sonics of Joy Division (we like it!) and Grizzly Bear, meeting up with the dank and roomy basement sound of Band Of Horses and Tom Petty – all culminating on a rainy Saturday afternoon with the buzz and haze of several bottles of red wine.

The debut single If The Shoe Fits is some old footage from a 1920s silent film that was spliced together by director Chris Pahlow to create the video.
