Dehd Announce The New Album ‘Blue Skies’ And A Slew Of Headlining Tour Dates

Dehd, the self-described mutt rock trio from Chicago, has just announced the new album Blue Skies. It’s the follow-up to 2020’s radical Flower Of Devotion and represents the band’s debut release on the Fat Possum label. If the mutt rock designation is lost on you, think of Dehd as somewhere between the harmonious vocal shrieks of the defunct Wu Lyf with the post-punk maturation of Cymbals Eat Guitars. In short, they shred and vocalist Emily Kempf has a head-turning delivery.

The band also announced a headlining US tour and shared the new single “Bad Love,” which offers an alternate take on the saccharine Valentine’s Day malarkey. It’s a track about embracing what makes you unique, despite feeling like a loser sometimes. Surely we can all relate.
