1. Dead On is a hardcore/punk band out of New Orleans. They formed in 2004 when three of the founding members' earlier band, The Picts, was out of commission. The Picts had lost their drummer, and Jim, Karla, and Kevin had the option of getting a new one, but all the members felt the music they were making at that time had changed from the early Picts material, so they decided to form a new band. They put out the Ready to Die EP in early 2005.
