GONE SUGAR DIE is a smart but explosive dark romance between synth punk and indie pop. It’s the kind of collision that can inspire ethereal transcendence or ignite a disco.
The guiding principle for GONE SUGAR DIE, aka Mike Hindert (The Bravery) and Patrick McWilliams (ex-The Cut Losses), is to make music the world can dance to. Imagine Crystal Castles and The Weeknd, in the pit together, watching The Sex Pistols. If the world could have somehow conjured and captured the missing link between the Pistols and Public Image Ltd., between The Clash and Big Audio Dynamite, and resurrected it with a modern edge, it might have sounded like GONE SUGAR DIE. The duo’s debut recording includes the work of producer/guitarist Marshall Gallagher (Teenage Wrist, 3OH!3) and drummer Anthony Burulcich (Weezer, Morrissey, The Bravery). There’s enough imagination, adventurousness, and experience between the pair at GONE SUGAR DIE’s center to ensure enthralling offerings of dirt pop for many years to come.
