DOWN I GO – at a theater near you!

September 29, 2011

DOWN I GO: Premiere New Music Video at the Aubin Cinema, London.

Not long ago, we received an email from a group of talented mofos that we’re fortunate to call our amigos. We’ve been huge fans of Down I Go from the moment we laid our ears on ’em and our eyes on their incredible video for A Wasp In Jar.

So, what was in this email you ask? A link – to their final EP, GODS and POSEIDON, a new video
directed by the mighty Adam Powell (if you aren’t familiar with Adam… look up his work now!)

Down I Go’s first video in 2007 was directed by Adam, and only those of you who’ve seen it will know how sick it is when these two forces combine. If you haven’t seen it, we urge you to check it!

POSEIDON
Nothing we can tell you can overhype this. You’re all in for one hellova show.
This is one of those amazing rare moments when a bunch of talented mofos get together to produce something monumental, totally DIY with basically zero money.

To celebrate the launch of POSEIDON, Down I Go will be hosting a FREE viewing party at the Aubin Cinema in London,  on October 8, where the video will be premiered on the cinema’s biggest screen. The video will also go live online here: http://www.downigo.com on the same day and shelsmusic will start taking pre-orders for GODS too.

Unfortunately Down I Go will cease to exist after they release their final EP on November 7th.
The EP will be limited to 300 copies on Vinyl and via digital download and will be available at http://www.shelsmusic.com

So, if you live nearby then grab your friends and head down to the Aubin Cinema.
You’ll get to watch one of the coolest music videos ever, at one of the coolest cinemas ever, have some drinks and bid  farewell to one of the coolest groups ever.
There’ll be live performances and loads of FREE giveaways too, including copies of past Down I Go releases and more…

Here’s more info on the event Facebook Event Page:

see ya’ll there! 🙂

DOWN I GO!

September 7, 2011

DOWN I GO TO RELEASE FINAL EP THROUGH SHELSMUSIC.

On November 7, 2011 shelsmusic will release DOWN I GO’s final EP, Gods.

Formed in 2005 and respected as one of the most innovative hardcore bands of the last decade DOWN I GO have consistently surpassed expectations and defied logic with their chaotic, genre-defying blend of noise-core. Accredited with creating sub-genres such as Disastercore and Robotcore, among others, and with 3 albums, 2 EPs and a trail of other random recordings behind them, DOWN I GO have been an ice cool breeze in a scene that has been drowning in it’s own stink.

Satisfyingly chaotic and therapeutically volatile, DOWN I GO have always been DIY to the core with their self produced recordings, videos and artwork – their focus has always been the music, their loyal cult following and the sharp messages that lay within layers of the noisy, twisted and satirical transmissions. Their final farewell is a sombre event for their peers and fans – and the icing on the cake of an incredible repertoire that will resonate for years to come. And it’s no surprise that after tackling themes like Dictators, Disasters, Dinosaurs and Robots, in previous releases, DOWN I GO have saved the Gods for last.

 

As with previous releases, Gods is not a simple collection of songs… it’s an event that needs to be appreciated as a whole. Like a play, choreographed by lunatics at an insane asylum it shrieks and twists chaotically. Press play and DOWN I GO will take you down with them… and wherever that is… it’s frikkin’ awesome. Gods will crush your face and rearrange your brain molecules – in a good way. Charlie Sheen has nightmares about getting his pussy destroyed by this band.


DOWN I GO will release their final self produced EP, Gods on Nov 7th through Shelsmusic. Pre-orders will go on sale on October 7th. The release will be a limited edition pressing on Vinyl and digital only and available at http://www.shelsmusic.com. The group have also completed a video with Director Adam Powell, which will be released on October 7.

If you are unfamiliar with DOWN I GO click on this link for some of their previous work.

Please head over to facebook.com/downigo now. First person to post “Fudging Awesome” on their wall will get a free copy of the record on Vinyl. First 10 people will get a free download of the album.

mucho love and respect.
