Norway, Sweden, who the hell cares? One of them places…. “Death By Unga Bunga kick off UK live dates today!” so said someone with an exclamation mark! “New EP “Fight!” out now. Listen to the title track right here!” said the exclaimer. Kind of like that Thing Lizzy pop rock thing they’ve got going on, that melodic old school guitar thing, that power pop garage rock thing, have we said this before? Love that Robbo/Gorham solo in the middle there, proper stuff, here it is….
And here’s the lazy cut ‘n paste with the details and the dates
Norway’s Death By Unga Bunga kick off a run of UK live dates today, in the wake of the release of their latest EP “Fight!” – out now on Jansen. The EP’s title track, “Fight!”, premiered on Stereogum, who called it “an infectious blast of crunchy riffage that culminates in a pleasure-center bullseye of a guitar solo.” . The Norwegian band have made international waves with their energetic rock/power pop in their short five-year history, receiving praise from the likes of NPR Music for their “uncomplicated and infectious,” sound. The band play the following dates in the UK:
Nov 23 – Oakford Social Club, Reading
Nov 24 – The Lexington (Ja Ja Ja), London
Nov 25 – Boileroom, Guildford
Nov 26 – Shacklewell Arms, London
2016 was Death by Unga Bunga’s most prolific year so far. Hailing from Moss, Norway, the band released their fourth album, “Pineapple Pizza”, this past spring, and on September 9th re-issued their debut album, Juvenile Jungle, while simultaneously releasing four brand new songs on their new EP, “Fight!”.
“Fight!” features four new songs sure to excite the Bands established fans as well as win over new converts. With the guitar distorted to the max, and melodies that you’re guaranteed to sing along to, the EP’s title should not be confused with a love for fist fights or meaningless quarrels, but rather a tribute to the fight for quality music. Because quality music exists, and DBUB is a steady supplier of just that”.
A whole load more exclaiming from a year or two mack, 2014 was the year for exclaiming wasn’t it?
