DED has released a new mini EP called Mannequin Eyes through Suretone Records. The effort features the tracks “A Mannequin Idol (Lullaby)” and “Eyes Sewn Shut“. Both tracks were recorded by producer Kevin Churko (Five Finger Death Punch, Disturbed) and is a preview of the band’s upcoming sophomore album, which is to release later this year.
The band’s frontman Joe Cotela had the following comments:
“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.”
