Together Pangea releases a new album called 'DYE'

Today Together Pangea shares their new album 'DYE', an upbeat, undeniable collection of hooks, anthems, and power-pop, garage-rock catchiness.

'DYE' is Inspired by crowd reaction to certain songs the band played at live shows in 2019, primary songwriter William Keegan made a conscious effort to consider the band’s audience with the aim of penning more sing-along choruses and a return to the emotional energy, vulnerability, and heaviness of the band’s well-loved 2014 album, 'Badillac'. In fact, he calls 'DYE' an amalgam of the band’s last three records: the inward looking and self-pleasing   experimentation of 2017’s 'Bulls and Roosters', the frantic and scream-y 'Badillac' with its inspiration from emotionally raw grunge, and the 50’s pop heavy 2011 album 'Living Dummy'.

This has been probably the most confusing year in most people’s lives, so for us to know exactly what all this shit we made is...we just don’t. We’re still processing it all. Because of Covid we rehearsed the record a lot more than other records we’ve done,” Keegan says. “We played the songs a lot together to find the C-parts and the breaks, and tried to get everything really tight because we wanted it to sound live. We kept all the live takes and layered other stuff on top of that.” Together Pangea bass player Danny Bengston adds, “We had a lot of time to do nothing but play music.”

Since they began jamming back in William’s Santa Clarita bedroom, Los Angeles indie band Together Pangea have continually challenged themselves with each subsequent offering. Jelly Jam [2010] poured the gasoline, Living Dummy [2011] struck the match, and 'Badillac' [2014] lit the fire with its revved-up nineties rock-inspired flames. Along the way, fan favorites like 'Sick Shit', 'Badillac', and 'Offer' would rack up millions of Spotify streams, while the group received support from Consequence of Sound, Pitchfork, MTV, Stereogum, and more. Following the 2015 release of The Phage EP, produced by The Replacements’ Tommy Stinson, these working-class boys embarked on the journey to what would become 2017’s 'Bulls and Roosters', which evidenced their growth as a tried-and-true rock band with just the right amount of “brattiness,” as they like to say. Before the global pandemic took over, Together Pangea brought their raucous live shows to sold-out audiences across the U.S., Canada, Mexico, UK, Europe, and Australia, both headlining and sharing the stage with bands like White Reaper, Vundabar, Tijuana Panthers, and Alkaline Trio. The band will also support Jimmy Eat World on a Europe/UK tour in 2022. All dates are below.
