Dead Confederate Surgically Remove Instruments from Body (Video)

Dead Confederate unveil an imaginative, surgery-based music video for forthcoming single “Giving It All Away”. Directed by Jason Miller (Of Montreal, Major Lazer, Diplo), the video is darkly poetic and features the band being at the mercy of a group of small children (found through a casting call on craigslist). It really conveys the meaning of the song which deals with how musicians put so much of themselves into their music in return for so little. There were some additional bonuses on top of the creation of a stunning video. Guitarist Walker said, “I never knew how comfortable a hospital gown was…. now I know why the Scottish wear kilts!” (Scroll down to watch the video)

In just a couple of weeks on August 24th, Dead Confederate’s sophomore album Sugar sees its release. With guidance by star producer John Agnello (Dinosaur Jr., Sonic Youth, The Hold Steady) Sugar pounds with a weighty, dark alt-grunge fervor that recalls Smashing Pumpkins’ heyday; at other times, the record buzzes with a frantic distortion and howling anger reminiscent of The Walkmen. Psychedelic and prog-rock elements add depth to a broad and diverse direction for the band – perhaps most evident on “Run From The Gun,” which blends harmony and Mellotron into a drifting, airy commentary on war.
