SiriusXM has launched two new stations devoted to the Grateful Dead, Dead Tracks and Dead Archive. These new stations come in addition to the longstanding Grateful Dead Channel on Channel 23.
Dead Tracks will be the new home for official releases from the San Francisco jam giants. These include all 13 of the band’s studio albums as well as officially sanctioned live albums like Live/Dead, Dead Set, and the band’s self-titled 1971 live album, commonly referred to as Skull & Roses. Dead Tracks will host recordings released by Warner Brothers, Grateful Dead Records, and Arista.
Over on Dead Archive, fans will hear selections from the band’s extensive archival collection. Devoted to “bringing the concert experience to fans,” the station will feature recordings from the Dave’s Picks series and its predecessor from Dick Latvala, as well as other cherished recordings like the 30 Days of Dead series and expanded releases like Spring 1990: So Glad You Made It, and much more. The station will also mine early archival releases like One From The Vault.
Both Dead Archive and Dead Tracks are currently available as Xtra Channels on the SiriusXM app, with the all-encompassing Grateful Dead Channel still available on Channel 23.
Dead & Company will head out on tour later this month for a lengthy run of dates stretching into the fall. For a full list of upcoming Dead & Co tour dates, head here.
