Die! Die! Die! (NZ)
Dunedin’s punk sons of the modern age, Die!Die!Die! are ready to bust through the back door with their fifth album under their grubby arm pits, stoked as punch to have pulled together their next blistering instalment in the Die!Die!Die! legacy.
Die! Die !Die! 'S W I M' is set for release August 15th 2014 on LP, CD and digital via the band's own label Records Et cetera (& through Black Night Crash Records). They share their first singles, 'Crystal' and 'Get Hit', in the form of their fresh-off-the-cutting-room-floor music videos below.
'S W I M' is an 11 track opus formed from the wall-sweat of Europe's best clubs, scratched off the tour van floor and from down the back of the couch-surfed accom. Produced by the band and Chris Townend (Portishead, D12, Violent Femmes) from The Lab in Auckland to Lightship 95 in London, 'S W I M's sparse geographical consummation is as expansive as their definition of punk and pop music.
As an internet acronym for 'someone who isn't me', 'S W I M's title suggests that Andrew Wilson is stepping out of his own comfort zone lyrically and bringing new themes and broader strokes to the mighty crash and boom of Die Die Die's sound. Indeed he has described it himself as "an album about surviving... which is very positive".
Driven by an obstinate need to create and perform music Die!Die!Die! unapologetically slap S W I M in your lap ten years since their very first shows.
To celebrate the release of 'S W I M', Die! Die! Die! return to Australia for exclusive shows with tickets on sale now!!!
Die!Die!Die! - SWIM out now on LP, CD and digital via the band's own label Records Et cetera.
