Ded have released the official music video for the song “Remember The Enemy.” The group reunited with video director Fred Durst for this latest clip, which finds them performing against a lit-up forested backdrop, while clear-eyed vocalist Joe Cotela also makes the most of a cage setting to set the tone for the clip. As for the song, it’s plenty of low end heaviness offset by electronic high-end keys, making for an engaging and hard driving rock track that’s guaranteed to stick in your head for days.

Speaking about the track, Cotela explains: “‘Remember The Enemy’ is a song about self-reflection. A couple years ago I started defeating myself with anxiety and depression. I was taking a lot of Xanax and medicating heavily with booze. It was at some point in there that I realized that I am in control of all of this. My brain and my thoughts only exist in ways that I allow them to. A great quote I came across summed it up: ‘The difference between who you are and who you want to be is what you do.'”

He continues: “I started going to cognitive therapy. I had to stop what I was doing, honestly look at myself and pick my ass up! I got mad at the anxiety/depression, I made it my ‘enemy.’ I had to beat the shit out of it and stomp it out. I was in my own way, my own worst enemy. It hasn’t completely gone away, it still rears its ugly fucking face at times — but now I know what the fucker looks like and how to deal with it.”

As for the Durst-directed clip, the singer states: “We shot the video for ‘Remember The Enemy’ in Griffith Park at the old abandoned Los Angeles Zoo that was opened in 1912 and closed in 1965. That area has turned into a hidden park/hiking destination. It is an eerie setting and is supposed to be haunted by the animals that were once imprisoned there in such obsolete, harsh conditions. We really went for a dark, nightmarish horror movie vibe, and we think we achieved that. As a side note — the scene from the Will Ferrell Anchorman movie where they fall into the bear pit was also shot there. We hope fans enjoy ‘Remember The Enemy’!”

“Remember The Enemy” is the follow up to “Anti-Everything” which reached the Top 20 at rock radio and whose Durst-directed video has surpassed one million views on YouTube.

Ded’s debut album, Misanthrope, was released in July via Suretone Records.

The Darkness have released the official music video for the song “Happiness.” The clip was created by Vitamin Pictures in Chicago, Illinois and was directed by Daniel DelPurgatorio.

Said The Darkness frontman Justin Hawkins: “‘Happiness’ is about seeing only the golden sand and overlooking the broken glass. Hearing the waves crash and filtering out the grotesque cries of mating gulls. Smelling the distant odor of fresh chips and ignoring the stench of nearby dog shit. Happiness is a choice. Choose The Darkness.”

“Happiness” is taken from The Darkness’s latest album, Pinewood Smile, which came out on October 6. The disc finds The Darkness on electrifying form, delivering some of the most sharp-witted, infectious and downright brilliant songs of their career, and was greeted with rave reviews, including four stars in issues of Q, Planet Rock and Mojo magazines.

Liv Sin Releases ‘King Of The Damned’ Video

Liv Sin, the new band led by former Sister Sin vocalist Liv “Sin” Jagrell, has released the official music video for a new song called “King Of The Damned.” The track is a call to action for the public to do something about the extinction of the world’s wildlife. The band has chosen to work with the Swedish animal rights organization Djurens Rätt during the single campaign.

“For me, this song is a call to action to everyone that we as humans will soon extinguish all of the world’s wildlife,” Liv says. “And we need to take action immediately otherwise there will be nothing left.

“I got the inspiration to the lyrics from Nick Brandt’s exhibition ‘Inherit The Dust’ (a photo exhibition where Brandt revisited places where he used to take pictures of the wildlife, and how its landscapes are now of garbage and people living in the garbage) and the shooting of Cecil The Lion. For me, both of those events are extremely depressing and not very flattering for mankind. Unfortunately, that’s the way we are heading if we do nothing.

“Remember Lion King? Well, soon there is not going to be any ‘King of the Jungle’ left, they will be ‘King of the Damned’ instead.

She continues: “I wish that everyone would take a minute to just think about it, about how we are treating our world.

“We chose to cooperate with a Swedish animal rights organization called Djurens Rätt on this song. All of the profits of this song from our Bandcamp site will go to them. You can also donate through PayPal at info@despotz.se.”

Liv Sin’s debut album, Follow Me, was released in April via the Swedish label Despotz Records.
