Welcome back, Ded. After breaking through with their 2017 debut, Mis-An-Thrope, the band is back with a new micro EP titled Mannequin Eyes, featuring the newly released song "A Mannequin Idol (Lullaby)," as seen and heard in the visualizer at the bottom of this post. In addition, you can also check out "Eyes Sewn Shut," an anthemic new track that can also be heard below.

Mannequin Eyes offers a taste of the group's upcoming sophomore set. The group pulled in producer Kevin Churko to work on the effort. The forthcoming Ded album will be the first release under Suretone Records’ renewed, multiple-year deal with ADA Worldwide for exclusive distribution. In the interim, get the new EP here.

"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," shares frontman Joe Cotela.

As the new EP drops (and can be heard below), the band will hit the road with In This Moment, Black Veil Brides and Raven Black as they build toward their forthcoming album. See all dates below and get ticketing info here.
