The double A side ‘I Seek Misery’ backed with ‘450’ is the second release from the band since they reformed their original line-up of guitarist/vocalist Andrew Wilson, drummer Michael Prain and newly returned bassist Lachlan Anderson.

‘I Seek Misery’ sees Die! Die! Die! keep up the high-energy noise, this time paired alongside melodic and shoegaze flourishes.

“I Seek Misery’ is about addiction and also standing in your own truth,’ says Wilson, “bringing about change to the current societal power dynamics in the ruins of a colonial empire.”
