Press Kit



Born and raised on classic rock and “the 80s”, the Byargeon brothers founded Deify before any of them were old enough to drive. Inspired by the bluesy grooves of AC/DC, storytelling of Tom Petty, and edge of early grunge, the band delivers a fresh take on rock n roll, with a Seattle flare that’s sure to keep you tapping your toes.

Over the years, the band’s live performance has been the driving force behind their success around the Pacific Northwest, playing some of the most renowned bars and clubs in Seattle, drawing comparisons to Velvet Revolver, Queens of the Stone Age, and Red Hot Chili Peppers. Until now, the band operated out of their childhood basement, from which they released two albums, Between the Lines (2014). and The Masquerade (2017). Going into the band’s 10th year, they’ve graduated to professional recording studios and are set to release multiple works throughout 2019.
