All Gone Dead was a deathrock/gothic/electropunk band formed in 2004 in London by Stich (previously of Tragic Black) and Darlin' Grave.

Biography[edit]

Formed by Stich in early 2004 as a solo music experimentation after leaving Tragic Black, the group soon evolved as he joined forces with Mark abre to create a duo. Stich's then girlfriend Barb later joined the fray playing bass for the band. After further experimentation, Mike Mihai joined the band, forming a quartet. After a while, tension built within the band as it became apparent Mark Abre no longer shared the same musical ideas as the rest of the group and was asked to leave.

Due to Stich and Barb's popularity and connections in the Deathrock and Goth scene throughout the U.K, Europe and the U.S.A, the band began to grow more and more popular and renowned within various subcultures.

The remaining 3 members pressed on and recorded the group's first home made demo, the 3 track Conceiving The Subversion. This demo earned them the award of best unsigned goth band in Germany's Gothic Magazine.

The band later fell back down to Stich and Barb after Mike Mihai decided it was in his best interests to leave. Despite the setback, Stich and Barb pressed on and finished their first album, Fallen & Forgotten in January 2006.

Strobelight Records approached them with the offer for a record deal. The band agreed and began their European Tour.

Shortly after this, the band revealed that Steve Pollytrama would be joining them for their European Tour.

Mid 2006, All Gone Dead played a successful show at Germany's renowned Gothic Festival, Wave-Gotik-Treffen. Sometime in 2008 All Gone Dead posted that they disbanded in a Myspace blog.
