Phoenix Rockers Ded have released an apocalyptic vision of the world with the new video for “FMFY”. The driving rocker is visually intense, with scenes of riots, violence and war interspersed with a powerful live performance against a stark backdrop of a run-down house.
Vocalist Joe Cotela says,” “FMFY” is a song that’s loosely inspired by Matthew McConaughey’s character Rust from the show True Detective. Although pretty extreme at times, a lot of his thoughts and ethos resonated with me and made me think about the human race and our programming. We’re programmed to be selfish and hopeful; and yet how hypocritical we are in the process of judging others and standing on our soapbox’s screaming our ‘important’ point of view.”
DED was born in the music scene of Phoenix, Arizona and has been together for 2 years. Band members Joe Cotela (Vocals), David Ludlow (Guitar), Kyle Koelsch (Bass), and Matt Reinhard (Drums) developed a friendship and ultimately a musical partnership that mixes horror and dark imagery to develop a familiar, yet unique sound that sets them apart from other bands.The band’s work ethic, drive, and dedication led them to record an EP that quickly made the rounds of the music industry, and started a buzz that opened doors.
Their touring helped grow awareness in the business and brought them to the attention of producer John Feldmann, culminated in the band signing with Jordan Schur @ Suretone Records.
