After three albums, one EP, and over half a dozen videos to its repertoire, Common Dead is on extended hiatus. The energy fueling the project is morphing into a new sound, still heavy and uncompromising, but doesn't fit as Common Dead. This doesn't mean Common Dead is finished, as fitting ideas remain for the distant future. Please keep seeding the music, watch for what's next, and thank you all for your encouragement. \m/

The next video is looking to be the most visually complex for Common Dead, let alone any band I've directed videos for. The track is "Modern Obsolete" and should arrive before the March 12th release of "Allegorize". Easily the most nightmarish piece I've made yet ... \m/
