DIE YOUNG + Good Fight

Good Fight Music welcomes Die Young to its family.

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.

Good Fight will release new album No Illusions in 2016. Recording begins in March with producer Craig Douglas (Bitter End, Venomous Maximus) at Origin Sound. Albaugh describes the album as "a fun ride through various realms of human disappointment, irrationality, violence, nihilism and pessimism."

The label welcomes this prolific band to its roster which has expanded to include Boys Night Out, The Banner, Old Wounds, Axis, Exalt, Hollow Earth, Of Feather and Bone, and Down In It, among others.
