DEAD GIRLS ACADEMY skillfully inject elements of classic metal like Mötley Crüe while reinvigorating hard rock to wider audiences, allied with peers like Avenged Sevenfold and Black Veil Brides. Michael Orlando’s kill or be killed real-life story is enough to make you a believer. Here’s a guy, a rebel who grew up in Sunset Strip-era Los Angeles, started a band, got a record deal, toured endlessly and lived rock & roll day in and day out - then a highway bus accident while on the road and his 20-something life is ruined. Michael Orlando almost died. In fact he DID die briefly.
Throughout three grueling years of reconstructive surgery and rehabilitation, Michael’s one source of inspiration was that dream of a second chance. With the support of best-friend Ronnie Radke, the two set out to assemble a scorching band of like-minded rockers and DEAD GIRLS ACADEMY was born.
Debut album Alchemy was released on June 15, 2018.
