New York’s DIED premiere new video for their eerie track “The Trial”

2 mins read

DIED started turning heads at the end of 2018 with their second EP,Β  Anonymized Internal Criminals, produced by Arthur Rizk (Code Orange, Power Trip). The EP was rated the #1 hardcore punk EP of the year and #48 out of all genres on Rate Your Music, but with their new album “Less Life”, sonically, the band brings in a lot more than just one genre spectrum. DIED went back to the studio and crafted an entirely new sound tjhat revealed the band’s uncanny ability to meld genres together while still crafting truly memorable songs. Mixed & mastered by legendary engineer Steve Fisk (Unwound, Nirvana, Car Seat Headrest), the record can be heard below.

The writing onΒ Less LifeΒ is an amalgamation of over four years of work matched with updated production that resembles early records from key alternative bands like Slint and Unwound.

The band comments:

We are really just looking to fill a void that exists for angry, intellectual, and technical rock music in America. A lot of the stuff we think is cool is happening in Britain.

Produced by Sasha Stroud…recorded at Artifact Audio in Brooklyn, New York. Mixed & Mastered by Steve Fisk (Unwound, Alice In Chains, Nirvana, etc…). Written by Alex Geisel & Matthew Leichenger. Composed by Alex Geisel, Matthew Leichenger, Caio Brentar, and Ian White. Released byΒ Boul God (our lead singer Alex’s label).
