Dred changes its name

Sydney band DRED has changed its name to better fit what it is about. They will now be known as OUROBOROS. This change will also see new merch and a new MySpace.

The band stated:

'After much thought and preparation we have decided to change the band name. It was a unanimous decision that we needed a more powerful and meaningful title that more suitably reflects what we are about and better fits our musical and lyrical themes.

'From here on, Dred will be known as Ouroboros. Our new MySpace page is already up and running and a new merch line is due shortly and the designs can already be viewed on this new page.  The current Dred MySpace will remain active for quite some time to come in order to help inform the fans of the name change.

'Our upcoming full length will be released under our new name.

'Let us stress that despite the name change, the bands line up, the music and our goals remain the same.'

The band will debut with their new name at a show with Psycroptic, The Amenta, Ruins and Switchblade on 20th June @ The Manning Bar.
