The Death Set’s debut full-length album, Worldwide, will be released on April 22nd by Counter Records, the rock imprint of Ninja Tune. Preceding the release of Worldwide, is the “Around The World” etched 7″, out late March. The Death Set will be touring the U.S. in support of Worldwide throughout the spring.

Touted as “Best Live Band” by the Baltimore City Paper, and many who have shared their floor space, The Death Set jams blindsiding minute-songs into compact spaces. The live three-piece plays on the floor and at crowd level boasting rallying punk rock — breakneck fuzz sliced with lo-fi electronics   and searing vocals over-scored by a lift of positivity.

From the timeless call-to-upraise-arms of “Negative Thinking”, through the rallying cry of “Intermission”, the love-buzz of “Heard It All Before” along the serrated edge of “Cold Teeth”, The Death Set’s Worldwide boasts the endearing noise of unrefined creation. The Death Set’s leader, the Australian-born, Baltimore-based, slight-sized, Johnny Siera, cites that frenzied energy as The Death Set’s reason for being and their tight-knit DIY community as the fuel to keep going.
