DIE! DIE! DIE! ANNOUNCED AS SUPPORT FOR ‘GANG OF FOUR’ AUSTRALIAN TOUR! LOCALS FAIT ACCOMPLI TO PLAY SYDNEY SHOW

GANG OF FOUR HEADER

KillRockStar Entertainment, Tombowler & Tone Deaf Present:
 Gang of Four
Die! Die! Die!
Announced For Australian Support

Ahead of the 2014 Australian tour to celebrate the 35th anniversary of their classic album Entertainment! Gang of Four have announced that the very special guests at each Australian show will be NZ’s Die! Die! Die! with locals Fait Accompli also joining in for the Sydney show!

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 travelled 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). The  record sent Die! Die! Die! on a whirlwind series of tours, gaining them considerable worldwide notoriety. 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.

Gang of Four is one of the most radical, and radically important, rock groups of the last 30 years. Formed in Leeds in 1976, Gang of Four first performed in May 1977. All the big bands that followed, the Chili Peppers, INXS, R.E.M., U2, have spoken of their debt to Gang of Four but in more recent years, the band’s influence has become almost universal with the emergence of post-punk influenced bands such as the Rapture, Radio 4, Futureheads, Nine Inch Nails, Franz Ferdinand and Bloc Party. The band is led by guitarist, songwriter and vocalist Andy Gill, widely acclaimed as an innovator and much copied around the world.

Gang of Four’s debut album Entertainment! was a rare bird for its time, an enthralling amalgam of punk, funk and angular rock that signalled a changing-of-the-guard ushering in of the post- punk era. Released in 1979, this spiky collection of danceable songs would go on to inspire a generation – stripped of excess flesh, it revealed a twitching skeleton rising against apathy and commodity. The influence of Entertainment! is still being felt in music today.  To celebrate 35 years since its release, Gang Of Four will perform the entire album in full and all the hits that followed across Australia in 2014.

DIE! DIE! DIE! NEW VIDEO FOR WASTED LANDS

Look DIE! DIE! DIE! (NZ) are just creative monsters. They work hard, make music, tour like tomorrow depended on it and they just put out edgy cool shit.

If you feel like you are in a room lacking of any true thinkers then maybe you should get a piece of A4 paper, write something on it then stick it on the wall. Hopefully it says “Shut the fuck up Hipster Wannabeez” then leave making really loud bee buzzing noises. People will respect you for it. Or you could upload a video of Shane Warne bowling in reverse with the sound of a seagull flying into a window and send it to the internet.

Just do something!

DIE! DIE! DIE! DOESN’T RHYME WITH CRAP! DUD! BAND!

New Zealand’s DIE! DIE! DIE! have released their long-awaited long player FORM in Australia. So to celebrate the occasion they will be smashing brains across the country over the coming 2 weeks.

If you’ve missed that weird ringing in your ear sensation, then please make way to your nearest ticket outlet and snap up some DIE! DIE! DIE! love for you and a friend.

Not many young bands these days have the power to give you  a lesson in punk realness. DIE! DIE! DIE!, when displayed in the rawest of its FORM (duh! pun) is a band that can.

INTERVIEW : MIKEY (DIE! DIE! DIE!)

Where would we be without the drums? Without drums we’d be living in a world of folk music. God love old skool Bob Dylan, but it would be a hard proposition for most. Who would be holding down the beat? What about rocking out and slam dancing? The thought sends a tear to the eye.

Mikey is a legend. He rocks one of the tightest and original sounding drum styles in noise punk music today. His band, the much-loved kiwi three-piece DIE! DIE! DIE! is defiantly leading the charge, reprezenting and taking their sound to a new higher level.

AND HERE’S THE NEW DIE! DIE! DIE! VIDEO

It feels like the next DIE! DIE! DIE! record FORM is going to be something special. This video is definitely a strong move forward for this New Zealand based 3 piece. They are touring their homeland in July and rumours are they will be heading to Australia soon.

Great use of ideas from the people in the trees, the animation, the bridge. This band isn’t afraid to push their creativity and it definitely shows. Even the production is great. The song has great stereo quality, but it’s still DIE! DIE! DIE! just fanging out as usual.

It’s very rare these days when a band can make you feel lucky to be alive. Real Talent!

TEASER OF THE NEW DIE! DIE! DIE! VIDEO

These guys rule!! Kids need to look to this band and get re-inspired. The soft music that is ravaging this Country and raping (alternative?) radio is a real worry. We need more punk rock (it’s a broad term) music on the airwaves, otherwise thought-provoking lyrics, reckless dancing and actually sweating at a gig will become a past time. Lets hope not.

DIE! DIE! DIE! interview coming soon. htttp://www.myspace.com/diediedienz

N.Z’s DIE! DIE! DIE! RETURN TO SYDNEY

The awesome DIE! DIE! DIE! (NZ) are in Australia to road test new material before they release their new record later this year. They’ll be at The Annandale Hotel on Thursday 15th April, so get down there to see this three-piece split the venue in two. Bringing

the support artillery on the night are HOWL (Melb) and locals FAIT ACCOMPLI. First band on stage from 8.30pm. Should be a

fun night of music worth bleeding your ears to.
