New Math's Die Trying CD + Tee Bundle

Formed in Rochester, NY in ‘76, New Math opened for the likes of the Ramones, the Psychedelic Furs, the Cramps, the Damned &The Gun Club at now-extinct local clubs. Offering up an endless supply of ascending guitar lines & catchy hooks of amphetamine-fueled power pop. This collection of early singles and unreleased demos showcases why they made fans far & wide. 

With ease, the band produced charming, should’ve-been-hits like the adrenaline rush of “The Restless Kind,” the two-tone English Beat-inspired “Older Women,” and of course the hyper-melodic anthem “Die Trying.” The latter was produced by Howard Thompson (aka Howard the Duck), who was known for working with John Cale and the Psychedelic Furs. It was first released on Reliable Records in 1979 and then re-released on CBS in England with the same B-side “Angela,” a take on ‘60s girl groups that juxtaposed its innocent pop leaning with a tragic story. “Die Trying” did receive some airplay on John Peel’s radio show and landed somewhere near the bottom of the British Charts. 

This bundle includes:

  • New Math's Die Trying on CD.
  • Webstore-Exclusive design on unisex super-soft Heather Red T-Shirt with distressed logo.
