Ded Premiere “Remember The Enemy” Video

Ded have premiered a new video for “Remember The Enemy,” via Loudwire. The clip was directed by Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst, and the song appears on the band’s album “Mis•an•thrope.”

Joe Cotela said the following about the song:

“‘Remember The Enemy‘ is a song about self-reflection. A couple years ago I started defeating myself with anxiety and depression. I was taking a lot of Xanax and medicating heavily with booze. It was at some point in there that I realized that I am in control of all of this.

My brain and my thoughts only exist in ways that I allow them to. A great quote I came across summed it up: “The difference between who you are and who you want to be is what you do.’”

“I started going to cognitive therapy. I had to stop what I was doing, honestly look at myself and pick my ass up! I got mad at the anxiety/depression, I made it my ‘enemy.’ I had to beat the shit out of it and stomp it out. I was in my own way, my own worst enemy. It hasn’t completely gone away, it still rears its ugly fucking face at times – but now I know what the fucker looks like and how to deal with it.”

He also added:

“We shot the video for ‘Remember The Enemy‘ in Griffith Park in Los Angeles. The old abandoned L.A. Zoo, that was opened in 1912 and closed in 1965 has since turned into a hidden park/hiking destination. It is really eerie and is supposed to be haunted by the animals that were once imprisoned there in such obsolete, harsh conditions. They also shot that scene from the Will Ferrell ‘Anchorman‘ movie there — the scene where they fall into the bear pit (laughs).”

“Fred picked out the location and had the vision before we even got there. This is the second video we’ve shot with him and we had total faith in him. Once we got there we saw the vision and were instantly blown away. We really went for a dark, nightmarish horror movie vibe.

Fred is just so beyond legit with this stuff, every location we shot in the park was exactly what we were looking for and it’s just so effortless to collaborate with him. He does push you really hard though! The scene where I’m in the cage went on for a while and I came out of there with a broken toe (laughs). We hope you enjoy RTE!”

Ozzy Osbourne, Rob Zombie, Prophets Of Rage, Marilyn Manson, Etc. Set For 2017 Ozzfest Meets Knotfest

The lineup has been revealed for the 2017 Ozzfest Meets Knotfest. The event will take place at the Glen Helen Amphitheater & Festival Grounds on November 4-5, with Ozzfest set for day one and Knotfest set for day two.

Sharon Osbourne said the following:

“’Ozzfest Meets Knotfest‘ is coming back for another round. Last year we had over 75,000 people attend and we have another great lineup this year with Ozzy’s first solo show in L.A. in more than six years. This is not just another show…it’s ‘Ozzfest Meets Knotfest‘! And this year’s event means the world to me as we’ll be amongst friends like Prophets of Rage, Rob Zombie, Deftones, Marilyn Manson and Stone Sour…it’s going to be another amazing weekend.”

Corey Taylor (Slipknot/Stone Sour) added:

“‘Knotfest‘ was never supposed to be exclusively about Slipknot. It was always about the things that fueled the spirit of Slipknot: music, art, passion, insanity, and the tribes that give it power. So it would make sense for Knotfest to carry on these ideas, even without Slipknot.

Because these things are the gasoline of creativity, and there’s plenty to go around, with plenty of great bands, acts and things to see. Teaming up again with Ozzfest means another weekend of the biggest, baddest, loudest and best. I hope you all will join us; it’s going to be (sic).”

Slipknot’s M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan also commented:

“It’s that incredible time again where Ozzfest and Knotfest meet up to bring all music fans together for two days of Rock and Roll. Let’s not forget the beautiful culture we are involved in and the history that is being written. Join the true passion of our concepts. I’ll see you there. Stay (sic).”
