Tāmaki Makaurau-based noise-punks Die! Die! Die! return with the announcement of new single ‘I Seek Misery’, lifted from the band’s upcoming 7’’, set for release October 23rd.
The double A side ‘I Seek Misery’ backed with ‘450’ is the second release from the band since they reformed their original line-up of guitarist/vocalist Andrew Wilson, drummer Michael Prain and newly returned bassist Lachlan Anderson.
‘I Seek Misery’ premiered via BLUNT Mag last week and sees Die! Die! Die! keep up the high-energy noise, this time paired alongside melodic and shoegaze flourishes.
On last year’s ‘O’ the band harkened back to their noisiest, most frenetic punk roots. On the new single Die! Die! Die! keep up the high-energy noise but with melodic and shoegaze flourishes.
The trio recorded both new tracks in a single session at Roundhead Studios in Auckland.
“‘I Seek Misery’ is about addiction and also standing in your own truth,’ says Wilson, “bringing about change to the current societal power dynamics in the ruins of a colonial empire.’
Engineered and mixed by Steven Marr and mastered by Mikey Young (Total Control), the double A-sided single will be available on transparent blue vinyl, self-released via the band in NZ/AUS and Buzzhowl in the UK/EU.
The band also announce NZ 7” tour dates. Sad Australians, sit tight…
