ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
You Say Party! We Say Die! are reaching fever pitch in Vancouverís indie rock scene with their insanely catchy beats and viciously fun live show. YSP! got their start in April 2004 with their independently released EP entitled ìdansk wadî (dance squad). Their debut full-length Hit the Floor has been available since September 2005 on up-and-coming Vancouver label Sound Document. Hit The Floor! is an energized album that is a clever collision of synthy beats and melodies which explode in danceable tracks and punk rock anthems.

Reminiscent of the vocal stylings of Yeah Yeah Yeahís, YSP! built upon textured melodic ideas that complimented their spastic, but richly diverse rock riffs. YSP!ís perpetually dance-inducing tracks have gained them considerable attention amoung the dance rock scene in Vancouver, so much that theyíve found themselves opening for Pretty Girls Make Graves, The Blood Brothers, SNFU and DOA.

YSP! currently have one Canadian tour under their belt as (Sept/Oct 2005) and are planning an upcoming Canada, USA and UK tours for the fi rst half of 2006 with appearances at SXSW in Austin, TX this March, and The Great Escape in Brighton, UK this May.

Nocturnal guitar stabs, mournful harmonies, dance-mother-fucker bass, and clanging hardcore beats ... Hit the Floor! neatly strips punk rock and politics alike to just get with the beat-- or get beaten."

-Pitchfork

"This Vancouver bands's debut is a brillitantly dark collection of spasmodic dance inducing tracks. Hit the Floor brims with indulgent sounds, rich with clever lyrics and rythmic fits and starts that make each song an explosion of exciting sounds."

-Exclaim!

Stupendous
The best thing I've heard in years - makes me feel about 20 years younger, when a band could capture my heart. Absolutely magnificent, and they're great live too.

Good stuff!
I like the straight style and the originality of "Hit the floor" - sometimes it reminds me of the German band Ideal from beginning of the 80s...

Best New Band in Years!!!
This, and their follow-up release Lose All Time are outstanding CDs! They take me back to the B-52s first 2 LPs are as innovative and exciting.

Catchy, danceable indie rock mixed with L7 esque punk attitude.
Upon playing this cd (on recommendation from a friend, so I hadn't heard much from YSPWSD previously) I am immediately presented with catchy, dancy indie rock fused with powerful old-school punk punch. This album is what would happen if you gave L7 synthesizers and LSD...I say it's a good mixture.
