Dead Romantic have revealed their arena-ready new single ‘Waste of Who I Am’ with a stunner of a music video to match. “This song is about being in a relationship where the other party seems to want you to be someone you’re not,” says vocalist Dan Taylor of the track. “It’s quite a fast paced song. There’s a lot of cool vocal parts in this song that are definitely good for singing along with. When somebody tries to make you change to be someone that you’re not, that’s not a healthy relationship to be in. This song’s message is one to affirm your own self-worth.”
‘Waste of Who I Am’ is another taster from Dead Romantic’s forthcoming debut album ‘Voices’, which was produced by the band’s guitarist Mike Krompass, who is also a multi-platinum record producer, and also features collaboration with Zakk Cervini (Yungblud, Bring Me The Horizon, Architects). The new single was mastered by Tim Turan (Bullet For My Valentine, Bring Me The Horizon, Metallica).
Expressing a sound that draws from the heaviest riffs to radio pop sensibilities, listeners can expect bleeding powerful riffs, crushing grooves, and anthemic vocals from the album. The first glimpse of ‘Voices’ came via mammoth single ‘Yesterday’, the epic video for which has amassed over 1.5 million views in a matter of months. Rock Sound described the track as “monolithic”. The music video for follow-up single ‘Kissed With A Lie’ has also surpassed 1.5 million views. ‘Yesterday’ and ‘Kissed With A Lie’ received regular spin on Kerrang! TV and Kerrang! Radio, climbing the charts on both stations.
