[Watch the Premiere of Die!Die!Die!’s ‘Crystal’ Video and Read a Chat With Andrew Wilson | NOISEY]


SWIM is an 11 track opus formed from the wall-sweat of Europe’s best clubs, scratched off the tour van floor and from down the back of the couch-surfed accom. Produced by the band and Chris Townend (Portishead, D12, Violent Femmes) from The Lab in Auckland to Lightship 95 in London, SWIM’s sparse geographical consummation is as expansive as their definition of punk and pop music.

As an internet acronym for ‘someone who isn’t me’, SWIM’s title suggests that Andrew Wilson is stepping out of his own comfort zone lyrically and bringing new themes and broader strokes to the mighty crash and boom of Die Die Die’s sound. Indeed he has described it himself as “an album about surviving… which is very positive”.

Driven by an obstinate need to create and perform music Die!Die!Die! unapologetically slap SWIM in your lap ten years since their very first shows.

Have at it!

Werewolf: Katniss Joins The News Team

From the outset, the Hunger Games series has dwelt obsessively on the ways that media images infiltrate our public and personal lives... From that grim starting point, Mockingjay Part One takes the process a few stages further. There is very little of the film that does not involve the characters (a) being on screens (b) making propaganda footage to be screened and (c) reacting to what other characters have been doing on screens.
