Death by Internet streamed exclusively on Impose earlier this week. New Noise Magazine premiered lead single "Hysteria" previously this month, while Atwood Magazine declared the song a "quintessential punk rock move".
Gazing into the menacing 21st-century zeitgeist with Death by Internet, Flower delivers a blistering follow-up EP to 2015's full-length debut Waste of Life. A natural evolution from its deeply personal predecessor, Death by Internet viciously challenges our desperate reliance on an alienating network of disconnected imagery over the course of a three song full-sensory assault.
Says frontman Jack Fowler, "Everything's a joke, defining ourselves by our social media pages, becoming hysterical recluses. That's death by internet. Addiction. Agoraphobia. Loneliness and longing. You are so much more than your profile on the internet."
Relationships, ideas, thoughts, information -- with Death by Internet, Flower dismantles how we process them all, leaving the listener amidst the pieces of a fractured culture, too complacent to rebuild.
After sharing stages in 2016 with legendary acts like Dinosaur Jr., American Football, L7, and Thursday, the trio return to the road this spring.
