Since starting during high school in 2001 Quick and the Dead rapidly developed a following with their catchy songs, positive message, and live performance. Blending different styles from pop rock to metal they have developed a unique sound that they are proud to call their own.

With their full-length albums and EPs they have sold more then 4,000 copies and thousands more have been downloaded and listened to online.
One of the bands strongest features is their live performance. Playing over 500 shows all over the West Coast has helped the band create one of the most energetic and entertaining live shows around.

After coming off the West Coast run of The Extreme Tour in late 2005, Quick and the Dead took time off to write and record their debut full length CD entitled Consider Your Options that released April of 2006. The CD has everything from pop rock with melodic lyrics to heavy, catchy rock and has been sold on SmartPunk.com to music listeners throughout the USA, Japan, Germany and Russia.
