Ded, ‘Mis•An•Thrope’ – Exclusive Album Stream Premiere
The year is only half over, but Ded are emerging as one of the breakout acts of 2017. The Phoenix foursome of Joe Cotela, David Ludlow, Kyle Koelsch and Matt Reindhard have burst on the scene with their hit song "Anti-Everything." There's plenty more to come from the group, who will release their Mis•An•Thrope album this Friday (July 20), but before the disc arrives in stores and online, the guys are giving you an advance listen with this exclusive album stream right here at Loudwire (listen below).
With roots in the hardcore scene and a desire to share honest music with a 'f--k you' attitude, Ded are ready to make their mark. Cotela says, “We give you Mis•An•Thrope, an album three years in the making. We started these songs with the intention of creating heavy, violent, diverse, aggressive, catchy, groovy, universal, thought provoking, challenging, visceral music that would be fulfilling to us as music listeners ourselves. I remember vividly revisiting and studying classic albums from our upbringing as well as feeling the excitement of new hungry, heavy bands exploding onto the scene or at least exploding to me."
He continues, "These songs were made with zero concern of who would ever hear them or if anyone would 'like' them. We created purely selfishly and honestly to please our own senses and pallets. This is the exact band and album that we wanted to hear ourselves from a band that didn't exist until we created it. You will hear many sounds, influences, vibes, tempos, styles, etc... They're all there intentionally and unintentionally. So much love to John Feldmann for seeing the fire in us and pushing us further than we could have ever gone on our own. We hope you enjoy our debut album but at the same time -- we're OK if you don't.“
Ded made their first impression with the song and video for "FMFY," followed by the recent rise up the charts with "Anti-Everything." There's also a lyric video out there promoting the song "Dead to Me." But here is your chance to take a listen to the album in full, as it was intended, before the disc is made available tomorrow. From "Architect" to "Beautiful," here's one you definitely want to check out, so hit play on the player below and rock it out.
If you like what you hear, then be sure to pick up Ded's Mis•An•Thrope album in stores or digitally via Amazon and iTunes. And look for Ded on tour this summer. They're currently playing shows with Korn and Stone Sour, but have a number of radio shows and festival appearances on the horizon beyond that. See their scheduled dates listed below.
