New Zealand punks Die! Die! Die! have shared their new onslaught, ‘I Seek Misery’.
The band – who returned with the ‘O’ EP last summer; their first release with bassist Lachlan Anderson since ‘Harmony’ in 2011 – will release the track as part of a double A-side along with ‘450’ on 23rd October.
“‘I Seek Misery is about addiction and also standing in your own truth,” says guitarist/vocalist Andrew Wilson, as well as “bringing about change to the current societal power dynamics in the ruins of a colonial empire. ‘450’ is about the impending climate collapse that will happen if we reach 450ppm of co2 in the atmosphere, but you can dance if you want to – to the climate collapse!”
The single was engineered and mixed by Steven Marr at Roundhead Studios and mastered by Mikey Young, while the accompanying video was photographed and edited by Stjohn Milgrew, and filmed earlier this month at Tone Exchange, Tāmaki Makaurau/Aukland, Aotearoa/New Zealand.
