The Death Set - Michel Poiccard Out Now

The Death Set - Michel Poiccard Out Now

The Death Set's new album Michel Poiccard is out now in the UK & Europe (15th March in N.America). Prefigured by tragedy, just as Beau Velasco and Johnny Siera were about to embark on writing a new album together, Velasco, who had struggled with drug addiction on and off throughout his life, died of an overdose.

Relocating to Brooklyn, Siera, with long time band members Daniel Walker and Jahphet Landis, created Michel Poiccard, an album which loses none of the charm of their previous 'punk spazz' work but adds considerable depth as well.

Above it all floats the spirit of Beau Velasco. It is his voice that opens the record with words which could serve as the group’s mission statement, perhaps never so fully realised: “I wanna take this tape and blow up ya fuckin’ stereo!”

Michel Poiccard is available now from the Ninjashop. Early CD purchases will receive a free Death Set poster with their order.
