Photos of Ded at Louder Than Life.

Two years ago Ded burst onto the scene hitting satellite radio hard and grabbing the attention of thousands through touring, festivals and word-of-mouth from the newly found die-hard fans. In 2019, it appears the fires have been lit again as Ded is preparing for their next step.
Performing on day three of Louder Than Life, the band appeared with a different presence on stage than from the last times I had seen then at Aftershock 2017 and Shiprocked 2018. There was more focused delivery in their set and it made the music sound stronger.
The real noise came with the closing song “Anti-Everything” which saw the Louisville crowd at their rowdiest. It was a rhythmic jumping section in front of the stage and while many had to hoist up crowd surfers, everyone was still paying full attention to the band on stage and enjoying what they were hearing.
I’m curious to see what is next for Ded. The band is going on a solid tour supporting In This Moment and I’m sure more dates will come at the beginning of 2020. Here’s hoping a new album is in the works as I’m definitely interested in hearing what they will do next after their popular debut Misanthrope.
