Dead Workers Party was the company and group of Brent Copeland and Eric Fullerton. They were most well-known to be the creators and co-hosts of The Shaft podcast. They joined the Yogscast on February 7, 2014, but left the Yogscast on the 27th of September of the same year due to financial issues within the company.
The company dissolved in October 2014 and Brent and Eric went on to create separate YouTube channels, on the 14th February 2015 a new video went up on the channel with a comment left stating that 3 of the original 5 partners of the party still remain and want to bring out new content and that DWP is still around, just under a different name.
Brent and Eric (also known as the Dead Workers Party) bring to you original music, Minecraft adventures, various gaming videos and of course, The Shaft - The #1 Minecraft Podcast. Eric is the one who creates the music you love to sing and he also loves editing Minecraft adventures to make you feel like you are watching a movie. Brent, well… he’s just big and goofy.
