New Zealand’s finest purveyors of noise-pop, pop-punk and indeed punk-noise, Die Die Die, have announced a tour of Australia’s East Coast for this autumn.
The Dunedin trio, who incredibly have been around for eight years now, will play seven shows across Queensland, NSW and Victoria in support of their latest album Form, released last year on the iconic Kiwi label Flying Nun. The album went straight in at number one in the New Zealand indie charts.
Form marks the band’s third album since they burst on to the scene in 2005 with their clanging self-titled debut, which was recorded by Steve Albini. Form was produced by Nick Roughan and so far has only seen release in Australia and New Zealand.
The Australian tour includes an appearance at the Big Backyard Festival in Brisbane. The dates in full are:
Fri 25 Mar, Graves, Elsewhere, Gold Coast
Sat 26 Mar, Big Backyard Festival, Brisbane
Sun 27 Mar, Great Northern, Byron Bay
Wed 30 Mar, Beach Road Hotel, Bondi, Sydney
Thu 31 Mar, Croatian Club, Newcastle
Fri 1 Apr, The Gaelic Club, Sydney
Sat 2 Apr, Ding Dong, Melbourne
