"This is a straight up DED track," says frontman Cotela. "I think this will be a live fan favorite in the future once concerts start happening again. It's also one of the heavier tracks from the new batch of songs that we're working on." DED —Joe Cotela (vocals), Kyle Koelsch (bass), and Matt Reinhard (drums)— have shared the visualizer for the brand new song "Parasite." It serves as another taste of what's to come on the band's upcoming sophomore effort, the details of which will be revealed soon.
He offered some insight into the song's deeper meaning, saying, "Lyrically, 'Parasite' is written from the point of view of a human sickness — whether it be anxiety, addiction, depression, or something else. It's an invisible monster inside us that torments and feed off of us. It is empowering and cathartic to me to be in those shoes — it brings me closer to understanding my demons. Educating and confronting ourselves is imperative to personal growth, healing, and positive change."
DED continue to work on new material with powerhouse rock producer Kevin Churko (Five Finger Death Punch, Ozzy Osbourne, Disturbed). The new songs take on the fury of their debut but cranks things up to 11.
The Phoenix-based band established itself as one of the rock genre's most promising newcomers since the 2017 release of their debut album Mis-An-Thrope, which racked up more than 25 million streams and spawned the Top 20 rock hits "Anti-Everything" and 'Remember the Enemy."
