We’ve both been shocked by the suffering caused by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines and want to do our bit to help.
For the foreseeable future all our music and merch purchased from our Bandcamp store will have all profits donated to the Disasters Emergency Committee appeal. This UK organisation distributes funds to key organisations engaged in disaster relief work in the affected area.
We’ve set all our items, vinyl, CDs, downloads and merch in our store to “pay as much as you want” and we promise every penny of profits will go to the appeal.
If you would like to fund the appeal directly rather than via our gear, please do so. You can find it here.
Please retweet, reblog and pass this on to as many people as possible. Deathline managed to raise over £300 for the Japan Tsunami relief effort in 2011 and would like to match or better that this time! PLEASE GIVE!

Hi Deathlettes. It’s been a busy autumn for us and we thought we’d update you with what’s been going on in time for Halloween.
Our new single, Every Dying Breath is available to order from our Bandcamp, as well as from pretty much any other online retailer you could desire. The Bandcamp special edition features three extra tracks not available on the regular edition as well as the music video of the song.
We are also offering a limited edition CD version on Bandcamp. This also comes with a free download of all tracks including the bonus material.
The single is a re-recorded version of the song off our 2012 album NOVA. It also features a demo version of the first brand new song since NOVA which will be part of the next album. Reviews have been pretty positive.
Kaoru will be spinning a mix of post-punk, heavy, psych, kraut and electronic sounds at December’s Chamber Club at The Windmill, Brixton. An excellent live line-up features the mighty LOOM and the heavy psych-gaze sound of London based New Zealanders, Human Wave Attack. It should be a great night.
Kaoru will have a small quantity of Every Dying Breath CDs and NOVA vinyls with him should you want to get a little something for Christmas.
We’re happy to announce that our song C’mon C’mon has been used in How I Live Now" the new post-apocalypse love story starring Saoirse Ronan (Hanna, The Lovely Bones, Atonement). The movie is in theatres now and will be available soon on DVD and iTunes. Well worth a look.
The excellent music website Shout4Music came to us with an unusual request to do a front-page feature interview in words + pictures. Here is the result. We’re not sure how much it reveals about us (apart from the fact that we’re grainy and black and white, but it was fun anyway. Let us know what you think in the comments.
Like many people, we were saddened to hear of Lou Reed’s death yesterday. He was a vital inspiration for us, our music and for those who inspired us. The world of music and art will miss him.
