Official press release:
Philadelphia’s frenzied trio, Die Choking, has completed the writing process of thirteen brand new tracks and is preparing to enter Studio 4 in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania the first week-and-a-half of April in order to lay down what will become their debut LP.
With an unyielding, uncompromising and unfuckingstoppable style of thrash-gone-grind speedfreak hardcore, Die Choking’s already frighteningly unhinged attack will be witnessed with even greater magnitude on the as-yet-unnamed LP, with even faster BPM-rates and more complicated arrangements employed in the design work of the songs. Through the expert production of Will Yip (Lauryn Hill, Circa Survive, Blacklisted, Cop Problem) the band’s notoriously rabid anthems will be captured in the most realistically devastating way possible. Stand by for studio updates in April followed by additional info on Die Choking’s impending debut album including a label destination and more.
Die Choking has also confirmed a battery of new tour dates for the Spring thaw, including a Northeast mini-tour with NYC tech death executioners, Artificial Brain. Beginning March 26th, the four-city run includes shows in New Castle, Baltimore and Pittsburgh before closing down in Montclair, New Jersey on March 29th, and will see Mother Brain, Kreig, Occult 45, Dendritic Arbor, Meth Quarry, Organ Dealer, Sunrot and more joining the chaos. April will see Die Choking recording their LP and playing alongside Starkweather, Darkside NYC, Edgewise, Dysphoria on April 25th in Philly. May takes the band to the Midwest for shows in Milwaukee and Chicago surrounding their performance at No Tomorrow Fest in Appleton, Wisconsin joining MDC, Channel 3, Hemdale, Sick/Tired, Tenement, Cloud Rat and more, and also sees them returning to NYC, New England and more. Stand by for new tour dates in the coming weeks.
