The Death Set shares “Set For Death”, a song that singer/guitarist Johnny Siera describes as “our daily musical reminder of death to remember to live”. The track is accompanied by a video that embraces this by seeing the band reenact twenty-five legendary movie deaths in a single take. Scarface, Independence Day, Hook, Spartacus, and many more are all in the firing line for the Death Set treatment.
“Set For Death” is released in anticipation of the band’s soon-to-be-released fourth album How To Tune A Parrot (September 10, Cobraside/Behemoth), which finds The Death Set distilled, for the first time, down to the duo of Johnny and Dan and is their first full-length release since 2014’s King Babies EP (Dim Mak). This album follows on the heels of a sustained period of sobriety and personal introspection that brings a new depth to the band’s trademark incandescent bursts of twisted noise pop. Or, as Siera wryly reflects, “we went from being scumbags to taking a good look at ourselves.”
