Vinyl LP pressing. 2015 album from the proto-punk legends. Since the discovery of Death in 2008 and the release of the archival LP For The Whole World To See, the story has been often told. Three African-American brothers, David, Dannis and Bobby Hackney, tapped into the surging energy of their hometown rock-and-roll scene (mid-70s Detroit) to produce a style and a set of songs that, while completely unappreciated in their day, proved later to be a powerful missing link in the evolution of punk rock. Now, Death and Drag City are proud to bring you N.E.W. Inspired by the positivity brought to them by ever-increasing numbers of new fans, the current performing Death (Bobby Hackney, Dannis Hackney, and Bobbie Duncan) completed several songs started back in the late 1970s by Bobby and David, as well as composing entirely new songs that continue the timeless vibe, feel and resolve of Death with remarkable drive and vigor. For many years after disbanding the original Death, Bobby and Dannis played different styles of music, but with the same deep spiritual investment. Bringing that spirit back to Death, their ability to make new songs in the same vein is fantastic. N.E.W. surveys the whole Death story, making a statement that screams to the soul
