Hear DED's Roaring New Songs "A Mannequin Idol (Lullaby)" and "Eyes Sewn Shut"

Two-track 'Mannequin Eyes' EP provides early taste of band's forthcoming LP

Having already generated over 25 million streams with their 2017 debut album, Mis-An-Thrope, Arizona rock outfit DED has returned with a new EP, Mannequin Eyes, released today (March 12th) via Suretone Records. The two-song record features the hard-hitting radio single "A Mannequin Idol (Lullaby)" and its counterpart "Eyes Sewn Shut," which you can stream above and below via their visualizer videos. Together, the pair provide an early taste of the group's forthcoming sophomore LP; helmed by producer Kevin Churko (Ozzy Osbourne, Disturbed, Five Finger Death Punch) and due late this year, the album will be the first release under Suretone Records' renewed, multiple-year deal with ADA Worldwide for exclusive distribution.

"Lyrically, I don't consciously try to write anything on purpose," DED frontman Joe Cotelo says of "A Mannequin Idol (Lullaby)" and "Eyes Sewn Shut." "I let the words flow out and I see what I am feeling. It comes from a place of no mind, no thought — it is my true self. As I see topics forming, I then turn on the thinking mind and run wild with it. These songs are both about awareness of self. What are you supporting? What are you consuming? Are you acting out of experiences that have manifested as truths that you accept because it's all you've ever known? Are these truths obsolete now? It's not telling anyone what to do, it's posing the question. I'm here to make people think. The change starts in each of us."

On March 24th at Orlando's House of Blues, DED will kick off a major North American tour in support of headliners In This Moment, joined by Black Veil Brides and Raven Black. See the full itinerary below. For all ticketing details, visit dedband.com.
