The Deadlights were a short-lived hard rock band from Long Beach, California. The band’s most notable achievement was playing the second stage at Ozzfest 2000.
The band released one self-titled album on February 22, 2000. The first four tracks (“Bitter”, “Amplifier”, “Nothing” and “Sweet Oblivion”) were released as promotional singles to radio and there was a low-budget video shot for the track “Junk”.
Note: The Deadlights should not be confused with the newer, four-piece alternative rock band from Lisburn, Northern Ireland. They should also not be confused with the San Diego band The Deadlites who toured the US and opened for Cheap Trick, The Plimsouls, Joe Bonamassa, and many others. That band’s album Comfort was released in 1998 and unlike The Deadlights, the band members have remained amicable.
