DEAD BY WEDNESDAY released their official music video for their latest single titled “S.O.S.” The single was produced and mastered by Nick Bellmore (Dee Snider, Jasta) at Dexter’s Lab Studios in Milford, CT. and is the first single to feature their new vocalist Steve Alvarez.

“We are legitimately pissed. Frustrations are high for musicians, as well as most people around the world, and we use our music as an outlet. That’s why it really sounds angry – because we are! We’ve also come to realize who we are as a band during this unwanted time off, so we went deep and heavy! It’s fast, lean and mean – perfect for the times” says the band’s drummer, OPUS.

He continues, “’S.O.S.’ also shows brotherhood among different races. It has a strong message. I believe this tune will not only attract a whole new audience, but I also feel like this will please some of the old school DEAD BY WEDNESDAY fans as well.”

“S.O.S.” is available at
