The Death Set


Released 25/03/2008

Straight out of Baltimore’s burgeoning and increasingly wild music scene, The Death Set throw punk rock abandon onto warehouse dancefloors and come up with something unique. 'Worldwide' is a micro-blast of catchy choruses, screamed lyrics, chaos, violence, humour and the reaffirmation of the value of going fucking nuts.

From the sheer elated nursery rhyme brilliance of 'Listen To The Collision', through the repudiation of 'Negative Thinking', into the micro-anthemic 'Cold Teeth', the secret to The Death Set's charm lies in their refutation of the built-in nihilism of punk, and the contradiction of abrasive positivity. Through their traveling manifesto, 'Around The World', the pop and scream of 'Impossible', the trad-thrash of 'Day In The Wife', or the complete release at the end of 'Peak Oil', this is a record of anthems for the best misfits party ever.

Although Beau played a major part in 'Worldwide', he decided to take a backseat in The Death Set when it came to going global. Johnny recruited a Baltimore native, Peter O’Connell, to double guitar and vocal duties. The group is rounded out by whatever drummer can play fast enough on a fucked up kit.
