Earlier this year it was revealed that Die A Legend is back after a six-year hiatus that followed the band’s quick rise in the Tromsø Hardcore scene. Their critically-acclaimed 2012 S/T debut launched Die A Legend towards the direction of playing every major Norwegian festival and providing tour support for the likes of Converge as well as Norwegian Grammy-winning band, The Good The Bad and The Zugly, before they went MIA into the lost oblivion or Valhalla… or community college or whatever.
Well, they’re back, and that’s great news for anybody who likes blistering hardcore punk rock with venom-spitting vocals and mean noisey breakdowns. Their newest release, WINNING, is set for release this September 6 on Loyal Blood Records which promises to be “an awkwardly titled 10-inch audiovisual spectacle” containing “a hardcore and contemporary commentary on the state of things.”
If that’s not enough to get you excited about new Norwegian Hardcore music then check out this quote from the band: “BLOODTHIRST is the second single off our new ten inch release titled WINNING, and it’s a blatant burst of hardcore energy. A contemplation on vengeful emotions – the track embodies our firm roots in both hardcore punk and post-hardcore and is a vibrant precursor of things to come.”
