New Zealand’s punk sons of the modern age, Die!Die!Die! are ready to bust through the back door at The Small Ballroom on Thursday September 11th.
Hailing from what is considered NZ’s iconic music city, Dunedin, founding members Andrew Wilson and Michael Prain cut their teeth in the live music scene by playing in noise bands around town. It wasn’t until 2003 that they
formed Die! Die! Die!, but they already had the hard working DIY ethos that continues even now. Taking their inspiration from likeminded artists HDU, Bailterspace and the Dead C, the band have always given their all at every show – the result being a band that brings persistent ferocity and energy to live performances and leaves the punters with an intense, euphoric feeling post show.
In 2012, Die! Die! Die! released Harmony, their fourth studio album recorded at Blackbox Studios, France. This album proves the band continues on their evolution to perfect their sound. Harmony brings together the raw energy and emotion from their live shows, encapsulating savant pop elements with their DIY punk philosophy. Produced by Chris Townend (Portishead, D12, Violent Femmes), and bringing back Shayne P. Carter on vocals, Harmony attained the same level of international critical acclaim.
If you’re a fan of Black Flag, Pixies, the Wipers, Wire, and Bailterspace, you’ll probably like Die! Die Die! Their unfiltered and powerful stage show has earned them a reputation as one of the most energetic and hardest-working bands around.
Tickets are now on sale via The Small Ballroom website.
