Today is the anniversary of Ian Curtis’ death in 1980. Still influencing pop music everyday. Death At Sea wouldn’t be the same band without Joy Division and New Order in our lives. They showed that bands from the grim North could make music and art that was as important and meaningful as anything from London or the States.

So it’s seems like it’s been a bit quiet on the Death At Sea front recently. But it’s all good. We’ve started working on our debut album. It’s something we’ve waited for our whole lives and now it’s happening. We’re lucky enough to be working with producer extrtaordinaire Chris Wolstenholme of Muse fame. He’s a total dude and we are bringing back guitars in a big way. We’ve all been waiting for summer to come and here’s some tunes that we’ve been digging while recording and dreaming of the sun.
I can’t believe that its been one year since we started Death At Sea, its been a heavy peach of a year! Well at least we haven’t been bored. Anyway, I thought I’d give you all an update of what we’ve been doing recently. Last week we started recording material for our debut album with our brah Chris Wolstenholme musician and producer extraordinaire. We are so excited about pulling everything together, the synergy is insane, the songs are sounding great, and we cant wait for everyone to hear them. I’m going to keep y’all posted along the way…
"They’re events you remember all your life, like your first real orgasm. And the whole purpose of the absurd, mechanically persistent involvement with recorded music is the pursuit of that priceless moment. So it’s not exactly that records might unhinge the mind, but rather that if anything is going to drive you up the wall it might as well be a record.”
― Lester Bangs, Psychotic Reactions and Carburetor Dung"
In the words of the greatest music scribe we’ve ever known go out and find that priceless moment. Happy Record Store Day people x
