New Zealand trio Die! Die! Die! are back to their original breakout lineup for the acclaimed forthcoming 7th (!) album, This Is Not An Island Anymore, due out February 18th - Listen to the album exclusively via XS Noize today!
Since their debut in 2005, Die! Die! Die! has blended a powerful and infectious concoction of post-punk, noise pop, shoegaze, lo-fi, and punk rock into one massive sounding whole. Fresh for a global pandemic outbreak, the trio returns in its original lineup for their most urgent and well-honed album to date, This Is Not An Island Anymore. Since recording their debut album with Steve Albini (Shellac, Nirvana, PJ Harvey) in Chicago in 2005, Die! Die! Die! have worked with producers including Shayne Carter, Nick Roughan (The Skeptics), Chris Townend (Violent Femmes), and have written and recorded albums in New York, Dunedin, London and rural France.
Their indispensable collection of records, and their intense and unflinching live show, continue to drive their connection with audiences across the globe. Both are a telling reminder of why Die! Die! Die! are one of the most enduring and unapologetic bands to ever emerge out of New Zealand.
The band is known for their unflinching and intense live shows. To the delight of fans across the globe they somehow always manage to capture the chaos on tape too. Maybe it's got to do with the fact they’ve written and recorded in all manner of places from Dunedin, New York, rural France and London? Maybe it's the perfect storm of having been in the studio and collaborating with people like Steve Albini (Shellac, Nirvana, Pj Harvey), Chris Townend (Violent Femmes) and Shayne Carter & Nick Roughan (The Skeptics).
