DED Drop New Video For ‘Kill Beautiful Things’ Co-Directed By IN THIS MOMENT’s MARIA BRINK

The song also marks the first creation from DED written with guitarist Alex Adamcik.

DED have returned with the new song and video for “Kill Beautiful Things”, which can be seen below.

DED singer Joe Cotela says the track explores more of the idea of trying to fend off those darker tendencies in life. “‘Kill Beautiful Things’ is about the survival of compassion and love in the modern world,” he says. “And how you navigate the path of life to not succumb to the evils of humanity. Adopting a ‘fight fire with fire’ mentality. The song shines a light on our struggle to exist with a conscious mind and good intentions against an overwhelming current of negativity and strife.”

He adds, “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 video was directed by Marc Klasfeld as well as singer Joe Cotela. Klasfeld shot the video in the woods of upstate New York with IN THIS MOMENT vocalist singer Maria Brink serving as a co-director.

The song also marks the first creation from DED written with guitarist Alex Adamcik as the track started out as a rough demo sent over by the guitarist and the band’s bassist Kyle Koelsch. Cotela says he both listened to the song and wrote the lyrics for it right there in his vehicle.

“It’s extraordinary when that happens and the magic all flows to you in a moment,” recalls Cotela. “With all of those unique elements happening, I’m so pleased with the result of a fresh sound for this track and the message of the video.” You can pick up DED’s “Kill Beautiful Things” here.
