Downriver Dead Men Go is a cinematic post-rock band from Leiden, the Netherlands. Their highly anticipated third album RUINS is out now on all digital platforms via FREIA Music. The vinyl release will be on 23rd February 2023.

The new album is another musical step forward for the band, showing a heavier side of DDMG. The songs on RUINS have a wide dynamic range, from exploding guitars to a thin whisper, exploring the boundaries of various musical and filmic styles. Cinematic post-rock in the truest sense! DDMG previously released two critically acclaimed albums: Tides in 2015 and Departures in 2018, gathering a loyal and ever-growing fan base. Both albums feature a mesmerizing, atmospheric, melancholic sound, ranging from post-rock to touches of prog and dark wave. Slow, sad and beautiful, they are the ultimate soundtrack to a dark and rainy day, covering themes of loss and loneliness. A live performance of DDMG wraps you in a warm blanket of melancholia. Dark and brooding vocals, haunting, melodic guitars and imposing keyboard soundscapes, combined with low lighting and video projections, set the mood for an evening to remember.
