Death by Unga Bunga are thrilled to announce their new EP, FIGHT!, due out September 9th via Jansen in conjunction with a re-issue of their beloved debut album, Juvenile Jungle. The EP’s title track, “Fight!,” premiered yesterday on Stereogum, who described it as “an infectious blast of crunchy riffage”. 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.
2016 looks like it will be 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, they will re-issue their debut album, Juvenile Jungle, while simultaneously releasing four brand new songs on their new EP, Fight!. Three releases in one year should justify a few pats on the back, but the band have no intention of slowing down anytime soon.
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.
The Fight! EP is out 9/9 via Jansen Plateproduksjon. Pre-order it here (vinyl) or here (iTunes).
