Editorial Reviews

Review

Crunching the genes of Wire, Gang of Four and their New Zealand precedents like Bailter Space into a snarling hybrid, the groovy punk of Die! Die! Die! is worthy of its Russ Meyer-like name. The sickeningly tight power trio's latest effort, Promises Promises, is a bracing throwback to the future. -- L.A. Weekly, May 2008

Even though Promises Promises is less abrasive than the last Die! Die! Die! album--with guitars less skritzy and vocals less spit-shoved over only slightly longer tunes--it feels more stripped down, with excitingly visceral, un-overtly lo-fi production. -- CMJ Magazine, April 2008

For a start, their relentless, unsettling sound is every bit as thrilling as their heavily punctuated name suggests, with this second offering stripped right down to the gnarled, bare bones of art punk. It's all squeals and yelps, tornado riffs and frantic battered drums - and if that's not enough for you, it's emotional, danceable and catchy to boot. -- NME Magazine, November 2008

There's something uneasy about New Zealand band Die! Die! Die!'s music; it's almost as if their occasionally abrasive, always compelling songs could seizure off into any direction at any time. But while a jerky franticness often encompasses their sonic sensibilities, the band's second album isn't all unabashed and in-your-face. "Sideways Here We Come" tones down the intensity for calmer layered tones, while the terse, two-minute title track juxtaposes gruff, spitfire vocals with explorative noise-rock instrumentals. While bands like Liars and most notably, Sonic Youth have made careers out of transforming noisy, ambiguous sounds into mostly accessable music, rattling songs like this can be hard to digest. On Promises, though, Die! Die! Die! craft a rickety balance between anxious cacophony and attractive post-punk melody. It's unnervingly unstable, but isn't that the point? -- Alternative Press, April 2008
