Release date: Out now
Label: Jansen Plateproduksjon
More info: Band website
Death by Unga Bunga are thrilled to announce their new single 'Into The Night', out now on 7-inch vinyl via Jansen. The track just premiered at UPROXX, who described it as "a track that features classic rock melodies akin to, say, Thin Lizzy, alongside fuzz overdrive that could be an early Cloud Nothings track". The Norwegian band have made international waves with their energetic rock/power pop in their short history, receiving praise from the likes of NPR Music for their “uncomplicated and infectious,” sound. Stream 'Into The Night' via UPROXX or Soundcloud.
In the band's own words, "We’ve been on a life-long quest to show people how NOT to suck, so listen up kids; you might just learn something. After extensive studying of the rock’n’roll cookbook, we found that guitar solos are still really, really cool. We did not hold back on this one."
They are also about to set off on US tour dates supporting the legendary Stiff Little Fingers.
