I’ve already written about what a ripper this latest Die! Die! Die! single is, but now that it’s got this great gory video to go along, feel like that gives us another chance to turn it up and get things real loud. I love the pummeling pace of the tune, and the vocals definitely have that post-hardcore howl that hits the spot. This still feels like one of those rippers that is destined to tear through your speakers, in the best way of course! The New Zealand outfit will release This is Not an Island Anymore on February 18th.
Sure sure, I’ve been mostly hitting on the pop notes of late the last few years, but when something like Die! Die! Die! hits, I just can’t turn away from the abrasiveness that raised me. That thundering rhythm section that opens this song is intoxicating in its own right, then you get the Andrew’s voice barking angrily. At times, it almost seems like the drums are doubling down on the vocals and guitar, begging them so speed up and explode. Back and forth we go, reminded by Wilson’s lyrics that we all get lost in the mix sometimes, and thus we’ve got to reset. Everything about this song feels explosive, and I can’t wait for the band to drop This Is Not an Island Anymore next February.
