DED has released a new music video for “A Mannequin Idol (Lullaby)” and you can see it right here, right now.
Hailing from Arizona, DED has been making waves for themselves since they hit the scene in 2017 with their debut album, Mis-An-Thrope. They’ve had over 25 million streams and have appeared several times on the Billboard chart, including #1 on the Alternative New Artist chart and #3 on the Top New Artist Albums chart. They have toured with the likes of KoRn, In This Monent and Stone Sour, as well as making the rounds on the festival circuit, including Aftershock, Louder Than Life, and Rock on the Range to name just a few.
“A Mannequin Idol (Lullaby)” is DED’s first song from their upcoming album. It also appeared on their two-song micro EP, Mannequin Eyes, along with “Eyes Sewn Shut.” Both songs were produced by Kevin Churko who is known for his work with Five Finger Death Punch, Ozzy Osbourne, and Disturbed. “A Mannequin Idol (Lullaby)” looks at what we consume and what we support, taking on the fake and vein aspects of our society that influence our perception of what is real. The song has been garnering a lot of attention on rock radio and Spotify, and you can find it on many playlists already.
The whole world is going through a troubling and scary time, but DED’s key message is one of hope, self-care and the importance of being aware of each other and how our behavior affects not only our own mental health but each others’. With what we are all dealing with during this pandemic, DED feels it’s time to spread positivity and comfort, now more than ever.
The new music video was directed by Marc Klasfeld who is known for his work with Slipknot, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Foo Fighters. So without further ado, here it is:
