Even though Death By Unga Bunga still are considered to be fairly young men, they’re actually having their 10th anniversary as a band this year. Rock band, to be precise. They’re celebrating this by releasing their fifth album, which simply will be called «Death By Unga Bunga».
2016 was a very prolific year for the band, resulting in three releases. Firstly they released their fourth album, «Pineapple Pizza», then a remastered edition of their debut album, «Juvenile Jungle», for the first time on vinyl, before they ended the year with four brand new songs on the EP «Fight». After all this you might think that the boys in DBUB would slow down the pace a bit. But alas.
While 2016 was prolific, 2017 was an active year. They have of course toured all over Norway, both the club scene and festivals, and in March, they went on their first headliner tour in the US, which took them from New York in the east to California in the west. That was a milestone, of course, but their US adventure didn’t stop there. In September, they joined punk rock legends Stiff Little Fingers as a support band on their 40th Anniversary Tour, playing close to 20 concerts from the west coast to the east coast. When 2017 now are nearing its end, the band have played 34 concerts in total on the American continent during one year. Impressive.
Now it’s time for a new album from DBUB. In late 2017, they released the singles «Bye Bye» and «Into the Night», and their fifth and self-titled album will be released by Jansen Records on April 6th. This time, too, they’ve produced the album themselves, something that gives it a personal touch, and the songs are faster, louder and funnier than ever.
As a taster from the forthcoming album, they now release the single «Soldier». Loud riffs, catchy choruses and powerpop/rock. You know you want it.
