Libel Music Feature Die! Die! Die!'s NEW Crystal Video

"Dunedin's punk sons of the modern age, Die! Die! Die! are ready to bust through the back door with their fifth album 'SWIM', set for release on August 15th via the band's own label Records Et cetera."

They share their first single, "Crystal", in the form of their fresh-off-the-cutting-room-floor music video. 'SWIM' 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, SWIM'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', SWIM'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".

Check out the video below for "Crystal".
