Die! Die! Die! album "Harmony" on November 9, 2012 in Europe!
Hailing from what is considered New Zealand’s iconic music city, Dunedin, founding members Andrew Wilson and Michael Prain cut their teeth in the live music scene by playing in noise bands around town. It wasn’t until 2003 that they formed Die! Die! Die!, but they already had the hard working DIY ethos that continues even now. Taking their inspiration from like minded artists Bailterspace and the Dead C, the band have always given their all at every show – the result being a band that brings persistent ferocity and energy to live performances and leaves the punters with an intense, euphoric feeling post show. Never a band to rest, Die! Die! Die! continue to live the true rock n roll lifestyle –touring extensively worldwide between albums.
This year, Die! Die! Die! release Harmony, their fourth studio album recorded at Blackbox Studios, France, being the best recording studio in the world if you ask Steve Albini. This album proves the band continue on their evolution to perfect their sound. Harmony brings together the raw energy and emotion from their live shows, encapsulating savant pop elements with their DIY punk philosophy. Produced by Chris Townend (Portishead, D12, Violent Femmes), and bringing back Shayne P. Carter on vocals, Harmony is set to be THE album of 2012.
Bringing on board bassist Michael Logie (The Mint Chicks, F In Math, Opossom), Die! Die! Die! will tour their face melting shows continuing to evoke fierce loyalty in fans and burn as many bridges as they cross.
RIYL: Fugazi, Joy Division, My Bloody Valentine
