Exclusive Premiere: Dead Flowers, ‘Anyone But Me’
Hailing from the great state of Texas, Dead Flowers are gearing up for an expansive U.S. tour set to kick off this Saturday (April 18). Still celebrating the release of their sophomore LP, His Blues, Dead Flowers are ready to meet and make new fans across the states, and today (April 14), Diffuser is thrilled to help them do that with the premiere of a brand-new lyric video; check out “Anyone But Me” in the video above.
“We wanted to make a video that showcased the lyrics and didn’t just have an album cover in the background,” frontman Corey Howe tells us. “We also didn’t want to take away from the song itself. The video is simple, but in a good way -- you have to keep watching to see if something will happen! It’s like ‘Bastards of Young’ meets ‘Subterranean Homesick Blues’!”
“Anyone But Me” is the second-to-last track on His Blues, an album that showcases Dead Flowers’ compelling garage rock sound, one that is simultaneously gritty and pristine. His Blues follows the band’s 2013 debut, For You. Both records are out via Idol Records; you can find more information here.
Dead Flowers’ 2015 U.S. tour starts April 18 at Three Links in Dallas. They currently have dates scheduled through May but are promising more shows will be announced soon.
