You may not have heard of Ded yet, but this video will definitely make you sit up and take notice now. We’re not even kidding.
Band members Joe Cotela (vocals), David Ludlow (guitar), Kyle Koelsch (bass), and Matt Reinhard (drums) may have been around for a few years in the Phoenix, AZ local scene as Ded but they are aiming to be the next big band from coast to coast. And no better way to catch eyeballs to what you’re doing then make a pretty vicious video for “Anti-Everything” and have it directed by the one and only Fred Durst of Limp Bizkit.
The band will be touring with Korn starting in May, and will also be appearing at Carolina Rebellion, Rock on the Range, Rocklahoma, Chicago Open Air, and Rise Above Festival. The band has already hit the road and toured with Beartooth, Asking Alexandria, Atreyu, Every Time I Die, Upon a Burning Body, The Acacia Strain, John 5, Powerman 5000, and Insane Clown Posse among others. In a world where effort is as important as talent, these guys are going to drop ded, see what we did there, from exhaustion or forget where they live.

Their touring helped grow awareness in the music world and brought them to the attention of producer John Feldmann who has worked with Disturbed, Blink 182, and Beartooth. Their collaboration with Feldmann culminated in the band signing with Jordan Schur at Suretone Records, who has worked with acts like Staind and the above mentioned Limp Bizkit among others. Suretone will be releasing their debut album on May 19, 2017.
Give this video a listen and let us know if you guys dig it. Facebook and Twitter feeds are humbly given to you for your mighty opinions. And we dare you not to hear a bit of Fred’s influence in this song.
