This is what it's all about.
DIE DIE BE are called that way because it could be that you have to die twice (once materially, once spiritually) to be able to be finally. Their music and lyrics run under these themes. The songs, which are now created after their first album «SECRECY THROUGH PUBLIC DISBELIEF» are a prayer, a shout, a request to an everyday fascism.
DIE DIE BE are Medium Mater and Spirit, accompanied live with Medium Visualis and Technika. Electro-pop, somewhere between Kraftwerk, Jean-Michel Jarre and Tangerine Dream, with keyboards, a drum kit and two different voices. Dark and dystopian the keyboards can sound, sometimes even fitting for a John Carpenter strip. And sometimes they’re just very very light.
The new Songs
Mantra Betrayer: I consume, therefore I am. I follow, therefore I am. I suffer, therefore I am. I suffer with, I’m fucking with, I’m being fucked with, therefore I am. I love, I go on, therefore I am, who would have thought: I think, and yet I am not.
Time Flies: Time flies, element of war. Tickling on my skin. And my skin is thin. 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 STOP, please let me exist! When I’m faster running I might kill seven flies with one shot… and on we go: where have my years gone? It’s a plague, a plague! Where did my time fly to? I’m getting bigger, taller, rougher … 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 STOP, please let me exist! The embrace of time flies. You are not old, you became and you’re still becoming. With open arms, open eyes it’s all easier, lighter … The time flies, let them all fly by, there’s no need to cry. Patience is satisfaction, patience is oneness.
Conformity Cutter: If no one stands up, no one gets cut. We are branches in fasces, rotten rods, cut even, same needs, same greeds. What I am, what I feel, what I want, what I need… it’s in this movie, that series, this game and this book … how to love and suffer, what for to work, I’m told constantly through stories from strangers and homies. If it fits for the others, why shouldn’t I fit in too? If I’m like you, I might survive; if you’re like me, we’re at least half alive and together we dive through an endless open sea of conformity. If no one stands out, no one can stand up. We stand up here for the diversity of being aware of yourself. Only you are you, how can anyone be like you.
And more will follow, the 3rd EP is planned for spring and then follows their 2nd LP. Videos will be released and live they are available everywhere. Die Diebe have finally stolen a bus! (Get in touch with us if you need one.)
This is what I need backing for.
We only need your support for a contribution to our basic expenses such as rehearsal room rental and depreciation of our equipment as well as investments in microphones and amplifiers. Probably we will also buy our food and pay our health insurance. And we hope to reach new ears through this campaign.
