Deathproof is one tight knit, weird lookin' family of industrious music lovers combining an absolute bounty of professional and personal experience to offer a veritable shitstorm of skills for Australian and international clients.
And before you ask, yes, the name is inspired by the excellent Tarantino flick about audacious babes driving sweet cars and seeking violent revenge on devious super villains. Isn't that how everyone gets their business name?
Originally started as Deathproof PR in 2011, the company was the culmination of lofty dreams conceptualised over a share house kitchen table. After founders Bec Reato and Emily Kelly jumped ship on their record label jobs to give self employment a crack, the industry called immediately, lending them work on huge arena tours (Avenged Sevenfold, 2011), niche punk rock releases (Northlane, 2011) and soon someone even let them run Soundwave’s on-site publicity for it’s mammoth 2013 tour. Though at the time seasoned PR professionals, they still giggled like tipsy schoolgirls when they met James Hetfield.
