Dead Days unleash cathartic anthem “Death Song”

Canadian metalcore band Dead Days deliver their latest offering, “Death Song”, which merges the emotive depth of an iconic emo ballad with the vigorous tones of progressive metalcore. Following the release of “Past Life”, where electronic elements intertwined akin to recent Motionless In White works, the band takes a more direct, hard-hitting approach with “Death Song”, allowing the raw rebellion within the lyrics to take center stage.

Lead vocalist Don Tuer reveals that the song was born from a place of profound despair and resentment, stating that he wrote “Death Song” when it felt like the world around him was crashing down: “Cathartic is the only word I can think of when it comes to this song.”  The track serves as a metaphorical boundary, challenging listeners not to succumb to adversity but to stand strong against it – a universally relatable message of resilience.

Recorded, mixed, and produced by Justin “JD” DeBlieck (formerly of Ice Nine Kills) and mastered by Steve Sopchak at The Square Studio, “Death Song” arrives with an accompanying music video that consists of live show visuals, complete with flashing strobe lights, exhibiting a powerful performance by the band members: “I’ll sing along to the sound of your death song / I’ll sing along to the sound of your death / I held the light in the palm of my hand / I won’t let you survive/ So say goodbye.”
