- An Interview with Dalton Deschain Jammerzine Exclusive 52:52
Dalton Deschain is someone who I hold in high regard when it comes to #indie music. And now, after discovering said music in 2015, I finally get to speak with him. He is a very unique multi-talent, to say the least. In addition to his band, Dalton Deschain & the Traveling Show, he also has a comic book series titled MONOCUL, which has a unique and dark blend of pulp stylings in Dalton’s now-signature appearance.
Dalton and his band also bring that blend and influence, which they describe as ‘pulp-punk’. That style is never more evident in their new single titled ‘Man/Thing’ above. In this interview, we talk about the new single as well as the upcoming album titled ‘Casey’ and the connection between their previous EPs, ‘Casey’, and their future album slated for release. With Dalton and the band you get a continuation within the music, as you will learn in this interview, which can create a lasting relationship between band and fans.
Their upcoming EP release party for ‘Casey’ will be in New York City on September 26th and is RSVP (link HERE).

About Dalton Deschain & the Traveling Show & ‘Casey’
Dalton Deschain & the Traveling Show are a pulp-punk band from NYC that tell stories loudly. Get ready for a weird-ass tale about circus freaks, nuclear war, and demonic possession that you can sing along to.
Casey is the fourth EP from NYC pulp-punk band Dalton Deschain & the Traveling Show, and the final entry in the Character Trilogy that started with 2016’s Roberta. The EP is their most high-energy and catchiest to date, featuring the soaring hooks of A-side “Rabid,” and the grimy rhythms and honking baritone sax of “Man/Thing.” The album comes packaged with an accompanying 60-page chapbook, featuring lyrics, illustrations, and a short story written by Deschain about the characters in the album.
‘Casey’ releases on September 27, 2019.
