THE DEATH SET – new video out
THE DEATH SET – "Set for Deah" New Video From Brooklyn Based Noise/Art-Punks
Australian-bred and NYC-based punk band The Death Set release the single and video for "Set for Death" 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 states " ""Set For Death" is the album’s anthem, our memento mori. The reminder of the inevitability of death and to live life to the fullest. Our friend and director Aurelien Offner came at us with the idea of recreating as many Death Scenes in films in 2:20 mins!"
In case you missed it: Watch the "Elephant" Video at NEW NOISE (US), VISIONS (DE) or Rocking (GR) and watch the "No Where Is Here " Video at OX FANZINE (DE), RUMORE MAG (IT) or IDIOTEQ.COM (PL).
"Die Leadsingle ist ein Zwei-Minuten-Punk-Brett, treibend, kompakt und auf den Punkt kommend, und lässt auf ein brachiales viertes Album hoffen." VISIONS
"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." New Noise
Coments the band: ""Elephant" is the warehouse party starter. An ode to why it all began. The video homages special films to us and pays trinute to the very real, everyday struggle of good and evil : How to not wake up everyday and not be a dirtbag :)"
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."
