Dead Retinas are a four piece hardcore band from Manchester UK founded in 2011 by CJ Smith (bass) and Jack Thompson (guitars).
After releasing several singles and gigging extensively in the Manchester area, they underwent several line-up changes. They recruited drummer Chris Heath and in 2017 recorded the EP Coup de Grace with CJ performing vocals. Shortly after, they were joined by Chris Gaduzo on bass so CJ could focus on vocals. Since then they have continued to play venues across Manchester and the surrounding areas with acts such as Employed To Serve and D.O.A.. Their newest EP Divine will be released on 30/11/2018.
