Even though Death By Unga Bunga are still considered to be fairly young men, they’re actually celebrating their ten year anniversary as a band in 2018. Rock band, to be precise. To commemorate this, they just released their fifth album, «So Far So Good So Cool». A title that summarizes their career so far pretty good.
2016 was a prolific year for the band, resulting in three releases. Firstly, they released their fourth album, «Pineapple Pizza», then a remastered edition of their debut album, «Juvenile Jungle», for the first time on vinyl, before they wrapped up the year with four brand new songs on the EP «Fight». After all of this, you might think that the boys in DBUB would slow down the pace a bit. But alas.
While 2016 was prolific, 2017 was an intensely active year. The band has of course toured all over Scandinavia, both clubs and festivals. Additionally, they also toured in the UK, Germany and Benelux and in March, they went on their first headliner tour in the US, which took them from New York in the east to California in the west. A milestone, for sure, but their US adventure didn’t stop there. In September, they joined punk rock legends Stiff Little Fingers as supporting act on their 40th Anniversary Tour, playing close to 20 concerts from coast to coast. By year end 2017, Death By Unga Bunga had played a total of 34 concerts on the American continent. Impressive.
