Nashville-based power trio The Dead Deads, are set to release their new album Tell Your Girls It’s Alright on August 20 via Rumble Records.
“My little brother was teasing me the other day about the juxtaposition of our poorly-attended first gig playing a benefit show of Dead Milkmen covers to now releasing a duet with Corey Taylor,”
says guitarist Meta Dead.
“I know most people’s question is probably going to be: How did this happen? And the answer is: CMFT is nice as hell, and likes the kind of songs we write.”
Bassist Daisy Dead furthers,
“It went from, ‘Yay, we’re on tour with Stone Sour’ to ‘Yay, Corey might want to co-write for the new record’ to ‘Yay, here’s a single and a video with CMFT,’ and it all felt pretty natural and also a bit surreal. I mean, our band dressed as Slipknot for Halloween once, so, yeah! It’s wild.”
“The song is a continuation of our song ‘Murder Ballad’ from a previous record,” Meta shares.
“It was one of Corey’s favorite songs of ours, so when he and I were talking about what to write about, the idea surfaced to tell the continuing story of the two lovers from that song. At the end of the other song, they were both dead. This song picks up with them as ghosts. You can take it literally that way, or find your own meaning. Corey and I both really enjoy using colorful language that can be interpreted multiple ways. In fact, our sound engineer had no idea it was even about dead people, so that’s a good sign.”
Drummer McQueen points to the song’s roots rock vibe, saying,
“It’s a place I can be very at home as a drummer, but Corey’s unique arrangement ideas kept it fresh and challenging.”
A gorgeous dreamy track of lush guitars that come with a razor edge and Taylor and Meta Dead’s vocals that are just perfect together. Their duet builds with a steady pace as the rest of the track takes shape around them. What happens when talent meets talent.
