DIE YOUNG + Lambgoat

"An aural assault anchored by heaping helpings of hardcore and thrash metal..."

Texas rippers Die Young have premiered new track "Mortal/Eternal" via Lambgoat.

Listen, here:

"Mortal/Eternal" appears on No Illusions, the long-running band's first album for Good Fight Music, coming August 26th.

Founded in 2002 and reformed in 2013 after a hiatus, Die Young deals in thrashing, apocalyptic hardcore. Led by vegan straightedge frontman Daniel Albaugh, the band goes full-throttle with a sound mixing Slayer thrash, Cro-Mags snarl, and Earth Crisis militancy. On No Illusions, they stay true to form while also adding some surprises - a Nick Cave cover, for example, and the epic female vocals heard on "Mortal/Eternal."

Albaugh describes the album as "a fun ride through various realms of human disappointment, irrationality, violence, nihilism and pessimism." It was produced by Craig Douglas (Bitter End, Venomous Maximus) at Origin Sound. 


Die Young 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 long list of bands, from Cro-Mags, to Catharsis, to Modern Life Is War.
