VIDEO NEWS: The Dead Deads Release Video For New Single ‘First Tooth’
The Dead Deads have released a video for their new single First Tooth, taken from their forthcoming album Tell Your Girls It’s Alright.
“It’s just one of those songs that has a hard swing to it — like it would make you walk with more swagger if it was in your earbuds,” says drummer McQueen Dead.
“It’s a little different for us, and if you have a problem with that, please refer back to our other single off this record Deal With Me,” adds guitarist Meta Dead. “When I was writing the lyrics, I was thinking about all the times I’ve been told I was ‘too this’ or ‘too that’ to amount to much. I finally realized the story is in MY hands, not theirs. Nobody is gonna do the painful part for me — nobody’s gonna shake loose what’s holding me back. That’s my job. The song says, ‘Why dontcha check around and find something loose.’ Maybe that’s a lover, or a job, or a bad habit. If it’s messing you up or holding you back, you need to pull that out. No one is gonna do that for you. Life is painful — to think you can completely avoid that is silly. This song is trying to take a really stressful part of life and break it down to a fundamental level. Think about being five — grab that tooth, give it a twist, and take the first step towards growing up and owning your life.”
Bassist Daisy Dead comcludes, “And nothing says swag like a horn section.”
