Dublin Death Patrol (DDP) is an American thrash metal band formed in 2006 by Testament singer Chuck Billy and Exodus singer Steve Souza.

The band began as a 7 piece with Souza and Chuck Billy on vocals, Chuck's brother Andy Billy, Greg Bustamante, and Steve Robello on guitar, Willy Lange on bass, and Dan Cunningham on drums. During the recording process of the album in 2007 the band added 3 more members to the fold, Troy Luccketta on drums/percussion, Steve Souza's brother John Souza on bass, and Phil Demmel on guitar. They made one more change after the album adding their 11th member, Eddie Billy on bass- the third of the Billy brothers in the band.

For local shows after the album's release the lineup was an 8-piece featuring Chuck Billy and Steve Souza on vocals, Willy Lange on Bass, Andy Billy, Steve Robello, Greg Bustamante, and John Hartsinck on guitar, and Danny Cunningham on drums.

For the touring of the album, not all of the members could make it across the country and overseas, so the lineup for the tour was trimmed down to Chuck Billy and Souza, John Souza on bass, Dan Cunningham on drums, and Andy Billy and Greg Bustamante on guitar with special guest John Hartsinck also on guitar. Eventually, the hometown "official" lineup was re-established and John Hartsinck was to take Phil Demmel's place (although it looks like he took Steve Robello's place, and Steve Robello was placed back in Demmel's spot).

Dublin Death Patrol confirmed for Graspop Metal Meeting 2011.[1]

Dublin Death Patrol will release two albums on the Mascot Records label, 2005's "DDP 4 Life" and 2012's follow-up effort, "Death Sentence", on August 14. [2]
