Ded, ‘Anti-Everything’ – Exclusive Video Premiere
Everything's coming into focus for up-and-coming rockers Ded ... or is it? The band has teamed up with Loudwire to exclusively bring you the video for their breakout song "Anti-Everything."
The clip was directed by Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst and finds the band shot in a variety of manners where their identities aren't always clear. Whether it be the blurring of the focus, flipping the negative on the performance, shrouding them in smoke or merely shooting them in dim light, it's not always easy to make out the individual band members while on screen. However, what is visible is the energy that these figures are putting into the undeniable performance.
“It was an honor for us to have Fred running the ship and directing on this. We all grew up listening to Limp Bizkit and watching music videos he directed for LB, Korn, Staind, etc. He really understands how to get your best from you - I imagine being an artist himself really helps with that," says Ded's Joe Cotela.
He continues, "We focused on capturing our live vibe and being free to be whoever we really are during a performance. Coupled with our passion for horror films, we wanted something eye grabbing and strange but not necessarily gore-filled. Our favorite aspect of horror is the psychological part, the part that actually truly affects you. The song is all about individuality and being unique and I think the video really expresses that with how distinctive it looks. Thanks to Loudwire for helping us share this - CHECK IT OUT!"
We debuted the lyric video for "Anti-Everything" here at Loudwire a few weeks back and the song is making a steady rise up the active rock charts. The tune follows on the heels of their previously released track "FMFY." The band has been working on their debut disc with producer John Feldmann and it's now set for a May 19 street date via Suretone Records. Stay tuned for pre-order information.
