If for some strange reason you’ve yet to jump on the DED bandwagon, get ready to fall for one of nu-metal’s rising stars. Off their debut album Mis-An-Thrope, the Arizona four-piece has just shared their epic new music video for “Hate Me.”
“This song is all about self-empowerment,” explains vocalist Joe Cotela. “It’s about following your gut and being who you know you truly are without being influenced by all of the bullshit around you. It’s about not succumbing to negative energy from negative people.“
Cotela continued to add, "There are people that do nothing with their lives but talk shit about someone who is on their grind. You can hate my hustle all day—but you will not stop it. This isn’t a song for boneheads that think it’s cool to be an asshole. It’s about doing something positive for yourself and going hard in your life in the face of adversity. I firmly believe that the power of the mind is infinite and with the right focus and determination, anything and everything is within your reach.”
