Die! Die! Die! Announce Australian Tour 2012
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 like minded 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.Never a band to rest, Die! Die! Die! continue to live the true rock n roll lifestyle – touring  extensively worldwide between albums. They have successfully carved out a niche for their sound and grown their fan base time & time again with each tour. 2005 saw the band record their debut self titled album in Chicago under the tutelage of uber-cool Steve Albini, who brought intensity to their raw, minimal sound with his experience in bands Big Black, Shellac as well as producing such iconic albums as Nirvana’s In Utro.

FORM, released in 2010 saw Die! Die! Die! as one of the first new artists contacted to the reformed Flying Nun – further proving their worth as an important band becoming part of this historic label. The album was produced by label mate Nick Roughan (Skeptics), who encapsulated their live sound even further, strengthening the unyielding, sometimes reckless and menacing sound, combining it with the bursting melodies the band are known for.

This year, Die! Die! Die! release Harmony, their fourth studio album recorded at Blackbox Studios, France.  This album proves the band continue 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 is set to be THE album of 2012.

Bringing on board bassist Michael Logie (The Mint Chicks, F In Math, Opossom), Die! Die! Die! will tour their face melting shows in Australia starting August 22nd, 2012 – continuing to evoke fierce loyalty in fans and burn as many bridges as they cross.
