TRACK: Death By Unga Bunga – ‘White Lies’: one final power-punk blast before the album

COMING atcha from their roots as an actual, proper, garage punk band – they formed from auditions held in guitarist Sebastian Ulstad Olsen’s garage, what’s not to like? – Norway’s power punk five piece Death By Unga Bunga have shared one final, super-infectious nugget on the trail blazing towards their album, Heavy Male Insecurity, which will be released next week.

It’s called “White Lies”, and it goes deeper for a bourbon-soaked retro-rawk riffola about the grind of life on the road.

“We’re just travellin’ through this town / Never coming back again,” rails Sebastian with a lip curled – and a trademark DBUB rousing, arms-aloft chorus.

“Being a travelling band you often find yourself telling a polite lie or two about how much we enjoyed your shitty venue, and how we’d love to come back ASAP,” he says.

“It’s about that and that one time someone tried to stab us in Bristol.”  

Punchy as hell, it’s sure in good company among previous single drops “Egocentric” and “Live Until I Die”. The album should be ace.

Death By Unga Bunga’s Heavy Male Insecurity will be released by Jansen Records on February 12th on digital download, CD, trad black, limited macho pink and super-limited erotic picture disc vinyl; you can place your order now, here.

Follow Death by Unga Bunga at their website, on Facebook, on Twitter and on Instagram.
