A promotional photo for Lamar County alt-country trio Izzy Ded & the Existential Dread. (Submitted)

After years of playing locally amongst themselves and honing the right sound, alt-country trio Izzy Ded & the Existential Dread have begun the journey of Texas troubadours as they hit the road extensively for the first time and put the finishing touches on their first album.

Led by Izzy Ded — the moniker of Caviness-based musician Colton Sanders —the band exhibits a raw and punkish Americana sound while pushing the definition of folk to its limits.
