Die Young No Illusions on Colored LP
Colored Copies Are Limited / Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
From Houston, Texas, Die Young administers a Slayerized brand of hardcore, in the tradition of Integrity, Ringworm, All Out War, and Earth Crisis. Thrash metal intensity and hardcore values unite, as vegan straightedge frontman Daniel Albaugh bears his soul on topics ranging from animal rights to the philosophies of Schopenhauer and Nietzsche.
Die Young was founded in 2002, put to rest in 2009, and rebooted in 2013. In that time the band has toured the world with a vengeance – the US (including Alaska), Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Central America, South America, Europe, Russia, Japan, Hong Kong, and beyond – and has shared stages with a massive list of bands that matter, from Cro-Mags, to Catharsis, to Modern Life Is War. The band has released a slew of recordings on such labels as Eulogy and A389.
Die Young follows-up their last release, 2013's Chosen Path, with the August 2016 release of No Illusions. No Illusions serves as Die Young's first release for new label home Good Fight Music. Produced by Craig Douglas (Bitter End, Venomous Maximus), Albaugh describes the new effort as "a fun ride through various realms of human disappointment, irrationality, violence, nihilism and pessimism."
