Deadman was one of six finalists competing before a panel of 12 judges, including representatives from Billboard Magazine, MTV, Universal, ASCAP and TAXI. More than 1,700 unsigned bands and independent artists submitted entries for the Southwest region of the IMWS. The other finalists included 40-Watt Hype (Fresno, Calif.), Beth Waters (Albany, Calif.), the Amandla Poets Band (Oakland, Calif.), Fono (San Diego, Calif.) and the Mos Generator (Port Orchard, Wash.).

Produced by Disc Makers, a CD manufacturer for independent musicians, the IMWS is a live music showcase series that gives musicians the opportunity to make valuable industry contacts and compete for more than $35,000 in recording gear, instruments, CD manufacturing services, DJ equipment and more. Judged by music industry executives, media and celebrities, and features live performances from the six finalists, the showcases are held in each of four regions throughout the country (Southwest, Midwest, Southeast and Northeast). The competition is open to musicians of all genres not currently signed to a major record label. Professional music screeners from TAXI selected 100 semi-finalists from the entries and the editors of Billboard Magazine chose the six finalists.
