DIE! DIE! DIE! – charm. offensive. – VINYL LP (black)VINYL LP (black)sounds of subterrania!2017
Drenched in the storied history and traditions of post-punk, noise pop, shoegaze, lo-fi, and punk rock, Charm. Offensive. is the sound of a thousand different nights played out in dingy bars, ramshackle DIY venues, and decaying concert halls around the globe. It’s also the sixth full-length album from Die! Die! Die!
Charm. Offensive. features their rousing new single ‘How Soon Is Too Soon (It’s Not Vintage It’s Used),’ a telling reminder of why they’re one of the most enduring and unapologetic bands to emerge out of New Zealand in over a decade. In that time, Die! Die! Die! has racked up a touring history as blurry and battle scarred as the busiest of musical road dogs of their home country. Along the way, in risky pursuit of not so much punk rock dreams, but punk rock memories, they’ve forged a robust relationship with many of the D.I.Y musical undergrounds scattered throughout the United States, Europe, Asia, and Australasia. Show by show, Die! Die! Die! have focused themselves into a captivating and dependable proposition, and time and time again, set the well-trod circuits they’ve carved out for themselves alight. In testament to this, in September, they will tour across China with Beijing-based noise-rockers Birdstriking, before heading to the UK, Europe and Russia for more shows in November.
