Hard-hitting and darkly charismatic Los Angeles-based singer, rapper and producer, Mike’s Dead, has dropped brand new music video for “Nightmares“, the second single to be taken from his upcoming ‘Revenge EP‘. The video offers a macabre, twisted narrative of a relationship gone wrong that sees Mike suffer at the hands of an unhinged girlfriend. Watch the video below and find the track on DSPs here.
“Nightmares” follows previous, punk tinged “SICK
”, which was released earlier this month and has clocked up 110,000 streams across platforms since release. These new songs mark a sonic shift that has seen Mike’s Dead embrace the influence of the nu-metal
and hard rock he grew up on (Nine Inch Nails
, Limp Bizkit
and Linkin Park) and provide Mike’s rabid, 1 million+ fanbase with a great taste of what’s to come with his upcoming ‘Revenge EP’.
Providing some further insight on “Nightmares”, Mike’s Dead shares
“With “Nightmares” I really wanted to show my versatility as an artist.This is the first song I’ve ever released with any sort of falsetto singing. I think fans are going to connect with this one a lot – especially the music video. I wanted to keep the same level of darkness that my videos have so we went with a plot based idea where I get fed raw meat by a psychotic girlfriend. Super sick. Definitely an out of the box idea.” About Mike’s Dead:
