Theaudience Feature Die! Die! Die!'s Tour

"Starting in Auckland and finishing in Christchurch, it's the most comprehensive Die! Die! Die! tour of New Zealand for months."

Post-punk outfit Die! Die! Die! have announced a nationwide tour on the back of the release of their fifth studio album 'SWIM'.

Starting in Auckland and finishing in Christchurch, it's the most comprehensive Die! Die! Die! tour of New Zealand for months, and gives fans right around the country the chance to see the group performing all new material.

The full list of tour dates are:

Friday 15th August - Neck Of The Woods, Auckland
Saturday 16th August - The Yot Club, Raglan
Sunday 17th August - Major Toms, Tauranga (matinee show)
Thursday 21st August - Great Job!, Palmerston North
Friday 22nd August - San Fran, Wellington
Wednesday 27th August - Barrytown Hall, Barrytown
Thursday 28th August - Pulse Bar, Wanaka
Friday 29th August - Chicks Hotel, Dunedin
Saturday 30th August - Wunderbar, Lyttleton, Christchurch

'SWIM' is the first Die! Die! Die! album to feature former Mint Chicks bassist Michael Logie, and his combination with drummer Michael Prain and frontman Andrew Wilson promises to be raucous and heavy, if their live shows over the past couple of years are any indication.

Standing for "Someone Who Isn't Me", 'SWIM' indicates the album will be a step outside of the comfort zone for Die! Die! Die!, and who knows exactly what that will bring to the 11-tracks on the album.

'SWIM' is out in New Zealand, Australia and Japan on August the 15th, just in time for the Auckland show, and will be released in the UK and Europe on September the 1st.

Buy tickets for the upcoming tour at undertheradar, Real Groovy in Auckland, Slow Boat or RPM in Wellington, and Portil Records in Dunedin.
