Ahead of their release of their debut album Invisible TonightThe Nearly Deads has premiered their new official video for "I Said," the first single off Invisible Tonight which pays homage to the 1992 film Wayne's World. The song also serves as an anthem for inner-strength and empowerment.  

"I see the way you're staring at me like I'm some kind of girl who follows boys around the world some kind of lost and confused little can't help myself," TJ sings and then finds the strength to leave those that are holding her back.  "NO - I am aware of all the games that you play but let me tell you boy it gets you nowhere and I said we're over...cause I can do this by myself  I'm gonna go it alone."

"I Said" is just a  tease of what to expect from the Nashville rock/alternative band, showcasing a wide musical range that shows that they can go from breezy, power-ballad to expansive, high-octane rock in 0 to 60.  

For their newest album, The Nearly Deads took to Kickstarter for funding as a newly independent band, recently parting ways with their past label Standby Records.  

But the fans who propelled their breakthrough video "Never Look Back" to over 6.3 million views won't be disapointed with their latest offering.  The Nearly Deads, consisting of Theresa Jeane (Vocals), Steven Tobi (Guitar), Javier Garza Jr. (Guitar), Kevin Koelsch (Bass) and Josh Perrone (Drums), delve back into their early punk-rock roots and layer some 90's alternative on the album which got its early start over a year ago by road-testing their new songs during their live gigs and then recording them in the studio whereas before it would've been the complete opposite. 

"We've been working on these songs for over a year," says TJ in their Kickstarter video.   "There's been a lot of things that this band has gone through in this year and it's really an album about that journey. It's turned into this whole beast of being thrust into the business...and what it can do to people and to me as a person."

Now with more control over their destiny and calling their own shots, The Nearly Deads' debut album Invisible Tonight is set to be released on June 24th and are currently on tour through June 29th.
