Deadbolt and the Celebrity hail from the Midwest and create songs about love, lost love, pain, life, death, beauty and desire. The song style ranges from "dirty rocker" to "haunting ballad." The band strives to be original and influenced by bands of recent vintage.


"Nightshade" is an ambitious collaboration between a handful of musicians who have played together in some incarnation since the early 2000s. Led by Josh Flugstad and Dave Burtnett, the songwriting showcases a wide range of sonic approaches and lyrical content. Available now on all major streaming services.
