Following his performance with Foo Fighters at this year’s Grammy Awards where they showcased his stellar remix of ‘Rope’, deadmau5 continues his collaborations in the rock world by enlisting the vocal talents of Gerard Way, lead singer of My Chemical Romance for his new single ‘Professional Griefers’. Out on August 14th, the single sits on the tougher end of deadmau5’s productions and has already been added to the Radio 1 playlist.
Fans first got to experience ‘Professional Griefers’ as an unreleased instrumental during deadmau5’s Meowingtons Hax tour last year, premiering the track at his critically acclaimed headlining performance at Lollapalooza. The vocal version of ‘Professional Griefers’ kicks off with stomping beats and heavily distorted guitar stabs, then builds the tension with discordant synth strikes leading into the chorus and features one of the most distinctive voices in rock. The accompanying video, featuring both deadmau5 and Gerard Way was created by Dave Stewart’s Weapons of Mass Entertainment production company and debuts later this month.
