Cuckoo Chaos is now Deadphones

Band announces new name and EP release

By Jeff Terich

It's official: Cuckoo Chaos is now Deadphones. The new band, composed of all five members of Cuckoo Chaos—launched a Twitter page and a Facebook page earlier this month and bought the domain name deadphonesmusic.com, although a new website hasn't yet launched. 

More importantly, however, the band has announced its first show as Deadphones: Feb. 28 at Soda Bar, with Inspired and the Sleep. 

Guitarist / keyboardist Jackson Milgaten says the show will be a record-release party for their debut three-song EP, which is due out in February via Waaga Records. Initially, the plan was to release a full-length album earlier in 2014, but it was pushed back to fall, when they'll be available to tour in support of it. Still, Milgaten says, it's important to release some music as soon as possible.

"We've been working on this album so long that I think the time is now," he says. "It's cool that we can put some music out right away, so we can let people know what this project sounds like." 

Fans who've caught Cuckoo Chaos at any point in the last year—particularly at their farewell show in December—have already heard some of the Deadphones material, though Milgaten says that most of the songs on the new EP and eventual full-length have undergone a long process of evolution since they were first written.

"One song on the album we wrote before our first national tour in 2011," Milgaten says. "For anyone that saw us play on that tour, it would now be unrecognizable.

"I feel like we put more thought into this music than ever before," he adds. "It'll be great to just let 'em go."
