Press Release:

Auckland’s DHDFDs are a force of nature. Explosive, frenetic and utterly unpredictable; their live shows have become the stuff of legend. After nearly seven years together they finally have an album ready to be unveiled. Hell is Now Love is supremely happy to present the long-awaited third release and the first album from the band; ‘French Fries’.

The DHDFDs burst onto the Auckland scene with a bang in 2005, while still in their teens. Since then they have supported the Black Lips, toured Japan with the King Brothers and graced the stage at Big Day Out.­­­­­­ Releasing the Pastor of Muppets EP in 2006 and following up with Fromage Du Pouvior in 2008 (released through Mole Music) the band have been through a couple of line-up changes, but they are back and armed with a brand spanking new album. French Fries was recorded and mixed in March of last year by Kody Nielson (The Mint Chicks, Bic Runga) and mastered by local maestro Nick Roughan (Tourettes, Street Chant, Lost Rockets).

French Fries is a thirty minute blitzkrieg of unstoppable rhythms (provided by new additions Joel Beeby and Jimmi Mac) and scuzzy guitars, topped off by Scot Brown’s signature howl. Managing to fit an epic thirteen tracks into a plastic disc that runs just short of thirty minutes the DHDFDs guarantee more value for money than a happy meal; French Fries is a frenetic garage rock gem that's guaranteed to bring joy to your ears.

The album will be available from the Hell is Now Love website http://hellisnowlove.bandcamp.com from the 6th of April onwards, as well as good record stores.

The band will be touring the country in celebration playing the following shows:

March 30th - Cassette Nine, Auckland
April 6th - Lucha Lounge, Auckland
April 13th - Whammy, Auckland
April 27th - Mighty Mighty, Wellington
April 28th - Space Monster, Whanganui
