As the saying goes, a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, and we feel it’s the same for the band with our favorite name, You Say Party! We Say Die!  This five-piece from British Columbia, (YSP!WSD! for short), decided to take some time off from the road in 2008 to record their newest album, XXXX, to be released February 9, 2010 on Paper Bag Records. With their album set to come out in the US early next year, and with a US tour to coincide, You Say Party! We Say Die! will come to conquer with their punk and dance-rock tunes beyond their Canadian borders once again.

XXXX promises to be “an energetic fusion of punk, dance-rock and grunge, with a mix of synthesizers and tech-heavy rhythms”, still fronted by Becky Ninkovic, with her ethereal-styled, scintillating voice. You Say Party! We Say Die! chose producer Howard Redekopp (Tegan & Sara, The New Pornographers) to make a charged album which will again live up to, and surpass, all the energy inherent in their band’s name.
