Drunkenwerewolf Feature Die! Die! Die!'s NEW Crystal Video

" 'SWIM' encapsulates everything the band have striven to embody and brings the gritty vehemence of their live show to listeners at home."

New Zealanders Die! Die! Die! have released a new video for their track “Crystal”, taken from their upcoming fifth album 'SWIM'. The trio has spent the last 9 years tailoring their noise-pop/punk clamor, drawing upon the sludge rock of the early 90s and the panache of modernist New York art-punk. Now signed to Smalltown America, 'SWIM' encapsulates everything the band have striven to embody and brings the gritty vehemence of their live show to listeners at home.

Reminiscent of Placebo’s heyday, not to mention Black Flag, Pixies and Wire, “Crystal” is three-minutes of unbridled noise. The video is as simplistic as the music, neither ever forcing their hand nor detracting from the other. Die! Die! Die! are simply interested in making a cacophonous din, there’s no hiding behind polished veneers or fancy production.

'SWIM' will be released this autumn through Smalltown America on 12” and digital. Pre-orders are available from 15th August and can be found here.
