Swedish hard rock band Dead Lord premiere a visualizer video for D-A-D cover »Sleeping My Day Away«.
»Sleeping My Day Away« is the first single taken from the upcoming EP »Dystopia«, set to release on March 11th, 2022 via Century Media Records.
About the new single, vocalist Hakim Krim comments:
“Defenders of the night and snoozers, unite! Here’s one fresh off the press that might sound familiar. Our fellow Scandinavians D-A-D cracked it quite some time ago, and we do agree that the nighttime sure is the right time. And the daytime is the not-so-ok-time. Here’s our take on their fine little nugget. Let us all sleep our days away, all in the name of rock!”
02. Sleeping My Day Away
03. Ace In The Hole
04. Hands Down
06. I staden som aldrig slumrar till
»Dystopia« is a continuation and closing chapter for the band’s 2020 full-length album, »Surrender«, the EP starts off where that record ended, with the title track serving as a front bookend. The remainder of its tracklisting features a collection of cover versions from acts like D-A-D (»Sleeping My Day Away«), Winterhawk (»Ace In The Hole«), Moon Martin (»Hands Down«) and Rory Gallagher (»Moonchild«), before closing out with the Swedish version of »Letter From Allen St.«. The »Dystopia« EP, which features front cover artwork by Juan Machado will see a March 11th, 2022 release via Century Media Records.
“Wax is the only thing that’s eternal! We know this as well as do you. So at last, here’s our latest single-gone-ep release, for you to enjoy. 6 tracks of something new, something old, something borrowed and something ice cold. A couple of unreleased tracks, homages to our fellow rockateers, if you will, along with some nuggets previously only digitally released, finally make their way to a face melting platter of rocking grooves. So even in the most dystopian of potential futures, where computers have long since lost to the nuclear storms, your record player will keep spinning. And rock will prevail!” adds Krim.
