DED have been turning heads as one of rock's most promising newcomers since the release of their debut album Mis-An-Thrope, which racked up more than 25 million streams. The band now returns to capture the rock world's attention with the brand new single Kill Beautiful Things, a song about the survival of compassion in the modern world. Vocalist Joe Cotela effortlessly shines a light on being conscious and having good intentions against an all-consuming current of calamity and strife.

Further, Cotela states, "I don't enjoy when I get pulled into the darkness of my mind, yet I cannot deny it strengthens me against becoming this person I don't want to be. I do feel we all need to remind ourselves of the sacred place we come from to preserve our identity and remain on our path to our true destiny, as there are many false ones on detours along the way."

The music video was shot with director Marc Klasfeld in the woods of upstate New York while the world was in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, the circumstances pushing DED out of their comfort zone. Albeit being cliche at times, they crafted a moving, dramatically different and visually impactful music video.

The band returns to the road this September with In This Moment and Black Veil Brides. All dates can be found here.

DED's sophomore full length will be announced in due course.
