THE DEATH SET – new video out
THE DEATH SET – New Video From Brooklyn Based Noise/Art-Punks Streaming; Album "How To Tune A Parrot" Out This September Through THIS CHARMING MAN RECORDS
Australian-bred and NYC-based punk band The Death Set release the single and video for "How to Tune a Parrot" from their upcoming LP, How To Tune A Parrot, out this September 10 through COBRASIDE/BEHEMOTH (US) / THIS CHARMING MAN RECORDS (EU) / NIW! (JPN). The band is prepped and ready to reignite the hell-bent energy of their once-famous warehouse shows.
"No Where is Here" is a response to the feeling that you have nowhere to go." – comments he band. "Remembering that no matter how fucked up the situation or head space is that I gotta start digging my way out, starting right here."
"The video is a nostalgic look at the NYC DIY scene from 2006-2010. Show documenter Torsten Meyer gifted me with hours of old footage and it had to be made into something special."
It’s been a long time since we’ve heard from those weirdos, The Death Set; their last full length came out in 2011. Ten years ago times were the opposite of quiet for these romper-stompers, with festival appearances all over the world, songs on soundtracks, video game features, two full-lengths on Ninja Tune’s Counter Records, a release on Steve Aokis’ Dim Mak label plus a support for The Beatsteaks arena tour.
A decade later, Dan and Johnny unleash "How To Tune A Parrot," and it’s a real rager. As the mighty DZ Deathrays say: "It’s as close as you can get to taking amphetamines audibly."
But pure punk rock? Nah, it’s not so easy with The Death Set. Is it Electro, Noise, Punk or Artsy fartsy shit? You better go watch a show of these maniacs, then you’ll have your answer: it’s 102% supernatural, high-energy power, complete with mosh pits, dives, jives and hi-fives.
