DED Release New EP “Mannequin Eyes”


DED have released a new micro EP today (March 12th) by the name of “Mannequin Eyes” via Suretone Records. The effort features the songs “A Mannequin Idol (Lullaby)” and “Eyes Sewn Shut“. Both were recorded with producer Kevin Churko (Five Finger Death Punch, Disturbed) and serve as a taste of the band’s forthcoming sophomore album, which will see a release later this year.

Frontman Joe Cotela commented:

“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.”
