DED, everyone knows that name. Ever since their debut album Mis•an•thrope released back in July, their success has been nothing short of impressive like being nominated for Loudwire’s – “Best New Artist” and their single Anti-Everything” reaching #18 on the Mediabase Active Rock chart. Both videos for “Anti-Everything” and the follow up track “Remember The Enemy” were produced by Fred Durst, both songs as well as a few others continue to tear up the radio waves. Everything DED has done up until this point has taken them full speed ahead on the triumph-train, and I don’t see that train pulling into the station anytime soon. I was super fortunate enough to catch them as that train took a brief detour to Louder Than Life Festival at Champions Park in Louisville, KY. With a full tour schedule, travel time and making their rounds in the media tent, it had been a long day for the guys in DED. But being the awesome dudes they are, they all sat down with me at a picnic table for a some talk-time and this is how it went.
