Canadian electronic production duo ZEDS DEAD are gearing up to release their upcoming THE LIVING DEAD EP out July 24 via Ultra Music. Featuring frequent collaborator Toronto-based rapper Omar LinX, the EP’s first single “The Living Dead” drops TODAY, July 3 and epitomizes ZEDS DEAD’s dark fantasy, hip-hop influenced beats. The music video for “The Living Dead” premieres July 10 and features actor Peter Greene, who’s best known for his role as “Zed” in Quentin Tarantino’s classic film Pulp Fiction.

On THE LIVING DEAD EP, Omar LinX returns on the second single “Cowboy,” due out in August. With Omar LinX’s self-reflective rhymes and the track’s guitar-driven melodies, “Cowboy” showcases ZEDS DEAD’s ability to switch from heavy, face-melting bass music to rock-tinged harmonies. “Crank” further underlines ZEDS DEAD’s powerful builds and gut-wrenching drops, while closer “Take A Chance” brings the EP to a slow-burning end. THE LIVING DEAD runs the production gamut of ZEDS DEAD and proves to be their most versatile release to date.

Following performances throughout this year at top music festivals across the world, including Ultra Music Festival, Coachella and Electric Daisy Carnival, ZEDS DEAD have confirmed a summer tour in support of THE LIVING DEAD EP. The Living Dead Tour will take producers DC and Hooks to some of the top venues and music festivals worldwide, including London’s Wireless Festival, Montreal’s Osheaga Music Festival, Lollapalooza, New York City’s Electric Zoo Festival, Belgium’s Tomorrowland and more.
