Kat Von D releases 80s workout inspired music video for new single ‘Dead’

Kat Von D has released her haunting and infectious new music video and single for ‘Dead’ online. The music video conjures an iconic Jane Fonda 80’s workout energy and injects Kat’s unique flavor, high fashion, and gothic fervor, making the clip fun and absolutely unforgettable. On the heels of her late 2023 single ‘Vampire Love,’ ‘Dead’ continues to push Kat Von D back into the musical spotlight. Kat has been busy in the studio wrapping up production on multiple new singles, leading to an album release later this year. The music video for ‘Dead’ was directed by Ryan Valdez (Rise Against, Korn, Stone Sour).

‘Dead’ emerged from a collaboration between two songwriting legends: Shari Short (Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, Rita Ora, etc.) and Fernando Garibay (Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars, and Kylie Minogue). Garibay also produced the song with Kat Von D.

Kat had this to say about the travk and video: “’Dead’ is a dreamy, dark, synth-pop jam that’ll make you wanna cry and get up and dance simultaneously. I remember the day that Shari Short and I wrote this song; I knew there just HAD to be a goth-aerobics music video to go along with it! Famed horror director Ryan Valdez directed the music video in Los Angeles, which was heavily inspired by classic Jane Fonda workouts from the 80’s. There’s a very special appearance in one of the music video trailers of legendary Charo joining me and my friends working out to ‘Dead’.”
