Die! Die! Die!: Sideways Here We Come
Die! Die! Die! is a punk three-piece from New Zealand formed in late 2003. Their music has been described as being abrasive, noisy and rough with a strong emphasis on the rhythm section within the band. The band are renowned for incessantly touring internationally since they began, focusing their efforts in New Zealand, Australia, the UK and USA (especially New York), and brief travels through Europe. The band’s live shows have become infamous for their energy and front man Andrew Wilson’s tendency to use the entire venue, climbing and writhing around the audience, with microphone in hand.
Their self-titled album Die! Die! Die! was released in 2005 in New Zealand, with an international release soon after. It was recorded in Chicago’s Electrical Audio by Steve Albini. 2006 saw the release of the four-track EP, Locust Weeks. This EP was included in the British release of the album, released by Pet Piranha Records.
The band have completed their new album, Promises, Promises, which was released in New Zealand in October 2007, and worldwide shortly thereafter. Its available for purchase at iTunes.
Die! Die! Die! is currently wrapping up their tour with The Von Bondies in the states, and then its back across the pond to the UK in June.
