DIE YOUNG + Madball

Houston, Texas hardcore machine Die Young enters the studio today to record new album No Illusions, the band's first release for its new label, Good Fight Music.

Thrash metal intensity and hardcore values unite in Die Young – a Slayerized brand of hardcore, in line with Integrity, Ringworm, and Earth Crisis, and boosted by the thinking-man's lyrics of vegan straightedge frontman Daniel Albaugh. With producer Craig Douglas (Bitter End, Venomous Maximus) at the helm, the band commences recording today what Albaugh has described as "a fun ride through various realms of human disappointment, irrationality, violence, nihilism and pessimism."

Following the recording of No Illusions, the band hits the road for an Eastern US tour, including numerous dates with New York hardcore royalty Madball.
