HEALTH TAKES OVER AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND! NEW ALBUM IN STORES AND ON ITUNES SEPTEMBER 12!

We're excited to be releasing the new HEALTH album GET COLOR on September 12. Stemming from a D.I.Y. noise scene based around the downtown L.A. art space The Smell, HEALTH make mathy indie rock with tribal drums, squealing guitars, asymmetrical basslines, and a homemade guitar pedal/microphone called a Zoothorn. As a four-piece led by Jacob Duzsik, the band played its first show around 2006 after practicing together for six months, and after a short tour started making a go in Los Angeles, playing ten-minute sets with likeminded local bands like Ex Models, No Age, and Mika Miko.

GET COLOR is their second full-length and they've stepped up big time. The first single 'Die Slow' received immediate accolades from Pitchfork & NME, with the effects rippling across their Die Slow through Europe tour, resulting in a near-riot in Eastern Europe. The song’s infectious fusion of noise and dance was the most fully-formed and undeniably rad piece of music from HEALTH yet. We can reassure you the rest of the album is just as stunning!

After a few more tours and a slot at SXSW, they returned to home base and started recording their debut album at The Smell. Capturing the cavernous brick acoustics with vintage microphones, Health featured a unique brand of aggressive and concise songs, and was released by Lovepump Records in 2007. Soon after, they started touring with pals Crystal Castles, an aggressive electro duo that had previously shared a 7" with the band. Health also remixed their song "Crimewave" that year.
