Live Review: DED @ The Black Heart, London

DED’s first ever U.K. headline show saw the intimate confines of The Black Heart in Camden, London given a pummelling from the off, as the Arizona quartet cruised through a pulsating set of tracks from their debut album ‘Mis•an•thrope’.  


Starting with ‘Architect’ and following up with the likes of ‘Remember the Enemy’, ‘Hate Me’ and ‘Rope’, the crowd was treated to the anthemic as well as destructive DED at their very best- sounding like a band who have been doing this together for many more years than they actually have. 


The early singles ‘Dead to Me’, ‘FMFY’ and ‘Anti-Everything’ unsurprisingly came at the end as DED gave their fans a few final chances to go absolutely wild which everyone did, before exiting the stage to incredible applause, confirming that the love for this band is strong in the U.K., and Europe, like it is in their native homeland.


We caught up with the guys before and after the show as the squad photo above confirms, and we also had a chat with Joe and David for the next episode of the HFTB podcast, and over a year after we gave them their U.K. radio debut, it was great to meet the guys in person, some of the most genuine people in the music business that we’ve met in a long time.

Visit to stay up to date with all things DED, and ‘Mis•an•thrope’ is available now on Spotify, iTunes, all other streaming platforms, plus physical CD’s and vinyl can be purchased from their website and in all good music shops.
