Dehd return with video for new single ‘Bad Love,’ announce forthcoming album ‘Blue’

Chicago trio Dehd have returned with a video for their new single, “Bad Love.” The song comes as part of the announcement of their third full-length record, Blue Skies, out May 27th via Fat Possom.

“Bad Love” is a quintessential Dehd anthem, with upbeat, yet gritty instrumentals and perfectly rowdy vocals. Alongside the track, Dehd have shared a video co-directed by vocalist Emily Kempf and Kevin Veselka. The video is an ode to all things punk, with studs, leather, fishnets, and sunglasses inside.

“‘Bad Love’ is about recovering from love addiction and making a decision to stop choosing and aligning with people who aren’t your energetic match,” Kempf explains. “I wrote it for myself and for everyone who needed to hear a song about choosing new forms of love. It’s about chasing a relationship with oneself rather than an unhealthy one, one that just doesn’t quite fit, or a codependent one.”

Watch the video for “Bad Love” below.

“Everyone experiences loneliness and everyone needs connection,” Kempf continues. “I wished to reclaim loneliness for myself and others as something not embarrassing or to be a kept dark secret. I wanted to embrace loneliness and being alone, alchemizing it with friendship and behaviours with self that don’t involve romance or sex.”

Blue Skies serves as the follow-up to the 2020 Dehd album, Flower of Devotion.
