    Imagine you are standing on the golf course, scored one eagle and eleven holes in one. You turn around pay the fee get into your beat up car and drive away.
    "S.W.I.M." feels exactly like that and to tell you in advance, the evolution that DIE! DIE! DIE! is undergoing with their 5th album was foreseeable and fits the trio from Auckland, New Zealand perfectly.
    They manage to destroy associations of insignificance and shallowness from the evil word pop and combine them thoroughly with their sound of shoe gazer and noise. This is why "S.W.I.M." is an album searching for answers. Answers Zach Harper may have pursued too, who is pictured on the artwork by Mark Rutledge.
    High speed pace, 90s Emo, Michael Logie's grooving bass lines, Andrew Wilson's flickering feedback, slightly boisterous vocals and over and over again Michael Prain's driving drumming.
    Disruption creates tension. Tension that is the charm of "S.W.I.M." because DIE! DIE! DIE! is playing with all these impressions they absorbed during their collective efforts since 2003.

    Having spent the better part of the past 8 years on the road, Die! Die! Die! now want to make your head, heart, and soul their home.
    Their entire history has involved movement. The band traveled to Chicago to cut their first self-titled release with some guy in a brick basement (Steve Albini - responsible for some of the greatest records of all time). Needless to say, this record sent Die! Die! Die! on a whirlwind series of tours, gaining them considerable worldwide notoriety which no band from their native Dunedin, New Zealand had seen since the eighties heyday of the Dunedin sound.
    In August 2007 the trio recorded Promises, Promises with New Zealand's greatest song writer Shayne Carter and Kevin McMahon (The Walkmen, Swans) in Upstate New York; and 2010 saw Die! Die! Die! as one of the first new artists contracted to the reformed Flying Nun and issuing FORM, produced by label mate Nick Roughan (Skeptics). These releases strengthened the unyielding, reckless and menacing live delivery with the bursting melodies the band is now known for.
    In 2012, Die! Die! Die! self-released their fourth studio album Harmony, recorded at Blackbox Studios, France. Harmony’s raw energy and emotion offers a savant-pop drenched with DIY punk philosophy. Produced by Chris Townend (Portishead, D12, Violent Femmes), it is the best encapsulation of Die! Die! Die!’s power yet.
    Now with bassist Michael Logie (The Mint Chicks, F In Math, Opossom) now a member, Die! Die! Die! will tour their face-melting shows throughout 2014 in the USA, Europe and beyond; embodying a vitality long since absent from the recent rock and punk circuits.
    There is no rehearsed set of messages, postures or stage antics: cutting to the quick, their songs and live delivery are nothing short of awe-inspiring. Without the aid of gimmicks, hype or pretence, Die! Die! Die! aim to appeal to all walks of life without alienating ANYONE!
    Reminiscent of the spirit and sounds of Black Flag, Pixies, the Wipers, Wire, and Bailterspace, Die! Die Die!’s unfiltered and powerful stage show has earned them a reputation as one of the most energetic and hardest-working bands around.
    Cathartic, direct, indispensable.. You will know them as Die! Die! Die!
