Dead Heart Bloom was formed by songwriter, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Boris Skalsky and guitarist Paul Wood following the dissolution of their previous band, the Washington, DC-based Phaser. Having quickly captured the attention of the indie press and radio, Phaser honed their live act playing with such artists as Interpol, Super Furry Animals, BRMC and Spiritualized. As touring members of Jimmy Chamberlin’s post Smashing Pumpkins project Skysaw, Boris and Paul further developed their live sound on stage, before solidifying the Dead Heart Bloom lineup with the addition of drummer Jason Molina. In 2015 and 2016, Dead Heart Bloom released material mixed by Anthony Molina of Mercury Rev. In 2018, the band returned with new music. The new record, 'State of Mind' is out now.
