New Zealand trio Die! Die! Die! are streaming their forthcoming new album This Is Not An Island Anymore early today via Rock ‘n’ Roll Globe in North America and XSNoize in EU/UK. Hear and share This Is Not An Island Anymore.
The band also recently released the insane, Peter Jackson inspired splatter-slapstick video for “Losing Sight, Keep On Kicking” via YouTube HERE.
“This album is really special to all of us,” says vocalist/guitarist Andrew Wilson. “We started this journey when Lachlan rejoined DDD in 2018 and I feel this record ties up a lot of loose ends. This is the best reflection of the band and our most honest record”
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.
