Philadelphia hypergrind trio DIE CHOKING does not remain stationary for long, proving it once again as the band prepares to play a trio of 1Fest shows taking place across the Northeast next weekend.
Additionally, Heavy Blog Is Heavy has issued an in-depth feature on DIE CHOKING’s intense graphics. The piece includes an interview with the entire band highlighting their dense, socio-political lyrical landscapes and deep-rooted beliefs that fuel their content and concepts, and how it’s all delivered visually through the talents of guitarist and graphic artist Jeffrey V. Daniels.
