Ded releases video for ‘Hate Me’

Ded has released a new horror-themed video for its third single, “Hate Me,” and to celebrate, the single is on sale everywhere for just 69 cents.

The clip finds the band playing inside a spooky-looking house with a bit of a supernatural vibe going on as it delivers its energetic performance of the track.

“What’s up world!” said vocalist Joe Cotela. “We’ve just released the video for our new single ‘Hate Me.’ This song is all about self-empowerment. It’s about following your gut and being who you know you truly are, without being influenced by all of the bullshit around you. It’s about not succumbing to negative energy from negative people.

“There are people that do nothing with their lives, but talk shit about someone who is on their grind. You can hate my hustle all day,  but you will not stop it. This isn’t a song for boneheads that think it’s cool to be an asshole. It’s about doing something positive for yourself and going hard in your life in the face of adversity. I firmly believe that the power of the mind is infinite and with the right focus and determination, anything and everything is within your reach.”

Cotela said the band shot the video with director Shan Dan Horan, who previously worked with DevilDriver, Exodus, Buckcherry and more. In addition, fans can look for a guest turn from SiriusXM host Jose Mangin, who makes a cameo in the video. Cotela also credits Oliver Porter and Oddities by Oliver for their use of real human skulls and taxidermy items, which help give the clip that special, extra creepy feel.

“It was rad to switch up directors for our third video to try something new. Filming the whole thing with new and longtime friends in our home state of Arizona was killer,” Cotela said. “We hope you guys enjoy this bad boy.”

2017 was a breakout year for Tempe, Arizona-based Ded. In addition to being named SiriusXM Octane’s Artist Discovery of the Year, Ded’s debut album “Mis-An-thrope,” bowed at number one on the Billboard Alternative New Artists album chart. Ded made an appearance at the Alternative Press Awards and received accolades from Amazon Music, Google Play Music, Metal Nation and more. The band played more than 100 dates, including every major U.S. rock festival, and toured with Korn, Stone Sour and Pop Evil,.
