In 2017 I met 4 dudes at Carolina Rebellion in Concord North Carolina, that I would soon learn to be a band that goes by the name DED. Two things stuck out to me about this band I had never heard, first was the white contacts. as part of their persona at the time, all members wore whites contacts, the second ting was the drive behind this band. This band spent 3 days meeting people, talking with media outlets, building a fanbase for an album that would be released soon. Now fast forward to 2020, DED has announced a new album and signing with Suretone Records. DED vocalist Joe Cotela had this to say about the band’s new music.

“The new music is about clarity through suffering and the frustration that comes with knowing that everyone can be better than they are – that I can be better than I am, because change starts with yourself. We want people to strive and try and be conscious of the things they consume, the way they act, the things they share and celebrate, and the way they live their life – to understand how that all affects their soul and what their legacy is going to be.”
