The Dead XIII release title track from new album ‘Dark Days’

Having successfully unleashed their second album, ‘Dark Days’ on the world last month, Manchester metallers The Dead XIII are proud to release the title track from the album. Accompanying ‘Dark Days’ is a haunting video, that speaks of the struggles we can all face, while trying to find our own way through our lives.

The Dead XIII explain about the single and video:

“Dark Days is the title track from our new album. The song is about fighting through the darkness within to reach the light. Choosing the path you want to lead and living the life you want to live.
The video is about the struggle with the darkness that controls us, manifesting itself in our minds through fear and anger. Making us fight to embrace the darkness to find the light.”

The single is available now from retailers such as iTunes, Spotify and Amazon.
