THE "MOTHERFUCKIN" DEATH SET
As being one of the guitarist/vocalists in The Death Set it made sense that this EP was all written, produced and mixed here at The Submarine. For me it was an intense record to produce and mix as it was so much more a personnel mission after working so closely and touring non stop with this band. Also the previous full length being “Michel Poiccard” was executed by XXX Change from Spank Rock infamy, so there was a definite high standard to maintain. Actually working closely with Alex on the last Death Set album was an awesome inspiration and has totally led me into a much greater understanding of production and mixing. So without further hold ups please check the press release below for the full scoop on our new EP “King Babies” proudly brought to you all by The Submarine and Dim Mak
About This Release
Two years after the release of The Death Set's critically acclaimed album, Michel Poiccard, the Australian duo Johnny Siera and Dan Walker join forces with Dim Mak and hard-hitting drummer Will Broussard to unleash their latest offering. Always strange and ridiculously catchy, with their latest EP, King Babies, The Death Set return to their punk origins. Capturing the mayhem of their live shows, King Babies is both noisy and melodic with maximum energy.
Produced and mixed by Dan Walker in his Brooklyn studio, The Submarine, King Babies is a collection of what people have grown to love from this bizarre art punk band. Opener "Lite the Fuse" is a screaming punk ode to its moombahton-inspired beat and grimy bass line. Explosive stream of consciousness lyrics break with just enough time to catch your breath before hitting the pit. Eighties-hardcore-inspired "Think Shank" follows suit with electronic builds, back and forth vocals and a half-time bridge that begs you to bounce. Voted most likely to get uncontrollably stuck in your head is the EP's anthem "Soar Away.” Paying homage to their popular tracks like "Negative Thinking," "Soar Away" is a melodic journey about conquering self-doubt. King Babies closes strong with "The Enemy," with electronic blips and a stomping beat behind lyrics that give voice to the madness of our internal dialogue. The Death Set is excited to join Dim Mak, a label that launched on hardcore seven inches and has grown into an EDM superpower -- the fit is snuggly and perfect..
