New Year, New Song, New Video
The Dead Deads start 2016 with a bang, premiering their new video next week while on the high seas on Shiprockedplaying with Five Finger Death Punch, Seether, and Halestorm. A fun follow-up from last summer’s “Lemonade” video, the band teamed up with director Seth Graves again for the first single off their upcoming release. The song is called “Super Tiny” and was recorded with producer Matt Mahaffey. “Super Tiny” finds the five of them on a desert motorcycle ride, taking a PBR break at an unknown biker bar, when trouble ensues. Then come the frickin’ laser beams. Also aliens. Not to worry, Betty, Hella, Meta, Daisy, and Billy know how to take care of business and rock the joint.
Filmed at Nashville rock and metal club Daisy Duke’s and featuring their friends and #deadcorps, including members ofSouthern Breed bikers, members of the Nashville Riot Grrrls, producer/engineer Keiffer Infantino, these will be the most exciting 3.5 minutes you’ve spent so far this year!
