GoDieLogo

Band name:
GO DIE

Date & location formed:
Formed in mid-2013, Orange, CA.

Reason for forming:
We formed Go Die as a way to get all out all the ideas, diatribes and poetry swimming around in our heads, and to deliver it in short, personal, catchy blasts of punk rock. Not to mention we are two dudes who have been best friends for fifteen years. Two best friends getting to make music we love and sharing it with new ears, while making new friends along the way…that’s reason enough in itself.

What are your lyrics about?
We write about personal, first-hand experiences of our lives, as well as more daunting topics that come with living in an encroaching dystopia; being swelled with anger and discontentment over topics like police brutality, inequality, diluted and cookie-cutter suburban life, stale musical scenes, failed families, and anti-intellectualism, to name a few. We were reared on punk rock that challenged what we knew, and made us seek out more information. If we have one mission for our lyrics, it would be for them to not be the last word on a topic, but to either open up a discussion or to simply be a launching off point for the listener to delve into the subject matter. We aim to challenge and engage.

How would you describe your sound?
We like to be heavy and noisy, but more importantly, melodic. We strive to get out of our own comfort zones, and to venture into new punk territory. There is no allegiance to any particular aesthetic; there is no slavish devotion to capturing a bygone era’s sonic discoveries. We’ve been influenced by every corner of the punk rock map, but choose to chart our own, new territory. It’s been tough to pinpoint what exactly our sound is, but we like calling it Nail House (mainly because making up sub-genres is fun).

What’s in the future for this band?
Hopefully continuing to play DIY spots around Southern California, as well as across the US at some point (this would be a dream come true). Really, the future is to just keep making music as two best friends, while making more friends along the way, connecting with people who are just as angry and fed up with shit as we are, and feeding off that energy and dialogue to continue making more albums.

How would you describe your sound?
Lo-Fi punk. Heavily influenced by garage punk, surf punk and Rudimentary Peni. Reverb everywhere.

What’s in the future for this band?
I’m working on a split tape with a new queer punk band from Youngstown, OH, called RIDE. Putting out a 7″ of stuff recorded with the dudes in the live band. Hopefully an LP and some more splits by spring 2015. Trying to start touring in the spring of 2015 too.
