Former members of hybrid metalcore group Drop Dead, Gorgeous—frontman Danny Stills, drummer Danny Cooper and keyboardist/programmer Aaron Rothe—have returned with a new band, 888. The trio have ditched their manic-metal tendencies for an infectious breed of radio-worthy alt-pop.
Listen to their debut EP, The Decades, below. If you dig what you hear, make sure to pick it up on iTunes.
After originally forming in 2007 and releasing three full-length albums, Drop Dead, Gorgeous went on hiatus in 2011. Members briefly reconvened with a new band, Bleach Blonde, in 2013, but the project has since gone dormant.
