University Of Sussex's Students Union Can't Wait To See Die! Die! Die! Live
Melting Vinyl are excited to welcome energetic New Zealand band 'Die! Die! Die!' to The Green Door Store in March!
Having spent the better part of the past 8 years on the road, 'Die! Die! Die!' now want to make your head, heart, and soul their home.
Their entire history has involved movement. The band traveled to Chicago to cut their first self-titled release with some guy in a brick basement (Steve Albini – responsible for some of the greatest records of all time). Needless to say, this record sent 'Die! Die! Die!' on a whirlwind series of tours, gaining them considerable worldwide notoriety which no band from their native Dunedin, New Zealand had seen since the eighties heyday of the Dunedin sound.
In August 2007 the trio recorded "Promises, Promises" with New Zealand’s greatest song writer Shayne Carter and Kevin McMahon (The Walkmen, Swans) in Upstate New York; and 2010 saw 'Die! Die! Die!' as one of the first new artists contracted to the reformed Flying Nun and issuing FORM, produced by label mate Nick Roughan (Skeptics). These releases strengthened the unyielding, reckless and menacing live delivery with the bursting melodies the band is now known for.
Last year, 'Die! Die! Die!' self-released their fourth studio album 'Harmony', recorded at Blackbox Studios, France. 'Harmony’s' raw energy and emotion offers a savant-pop drenched with DIY punk philosophy. Produced by Chris Townend (Portishead, D12, Violent Femmes), it is the best encapsulation of 'Die! Die! Die!’s' power yet.
Reminiscent of the spirit and sounds of Black Flag, Pixies, the Wipers, Wire, and Bailterspace, 'Die! Die Die!’s' unfiltered and powerful stage show has earned them a reputation as one of the most energetic and hardest-working bands around.
