CURRENTLY TOURING ON DEADBEATS NORTH AMERICAN TOUR FEATURING GHOSTFACE KILLAH, NGHTMRE & MORE
STREAM: “Where the Wild Things Are” –
Marking one of the biggest dance music collaborations of 2017 so far, Zeds Dead have teamed up with Denver’s Illenium to release the first new Zeds Dead single since their debut album Northern Lights. “Where the Wild Things Are” alternates between moments of pure euphoria and hard-charging bass-driven madness all of which is hinged together by anthemic vocals.
Zeds Dead shares, “We had Nick with us on the Northern Lights tour and had been bouncing ideas around for a while. We started off wanting to make something very melodic but when we got in the studio we couldn’t really hold back from making it go wild on the drop. After all it is ‘Where the Wild Things Are’.”
The single had everyone in the dance world talking when Zeds Dead first debuted it at their annual sold-out Dead Rocks event at Colorado’s legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater. The official release comes after the announcement of Illenium’s AWAKE tour and sold out four show Texas run, and precedes his upcoming album due later this year. “Where the Wild Things Are” also lands ahead of Zeds Dead’s fall touring schedule, and can be both streamed above and heard on Wednesday July 26th on Deadbeats Radio SiriusXM channel 52.
Illenium adds, “It was a real dream come true to work on a track with Zeds Dead. They’ve been idols of mine since the beginning and I’m super stoked on how it all turned out. I really feel like it hits on both styles perfectly :)”
The drop follows the announcement of the first official Deadbeats tour covering North America. In addition to Zeds Dead, the lineup includes Ghostface Killah, NGHTMRE and more depending on the date as each city will have a unique lineup of 5-7 different artists who are a part of the Deadbeats world.
