Death Pill, the hardcore punk trio from Ukraine, released their debut album on 24th February, a year to the day that Russia invaded their country.
Tracking started during Covid and was completed in late 2021, only three tracks were mixed before the war hit. However the band and their production team were able to somehow continue and finished everything including the artwork in 5 months whilst the Russian invasion rolled on. A testament to their drive and single mindedness.
Now the band have announced their ‘Over My Dead Body’ European tour, which defiantly begins in Kyiv, Ukraine. The band comment,
“Finally it’s happening! Death Pill is coming to Europe! Thanks to our Armed Forces and to all of you who believed in us and supported us, we are going on our first international tour, to spread the word and the news about Ukraine, gather support and donate for our country!
We are incredibly excited and happy, because for the first time in a year we will get together to knock out all the shit that has accumulated during this time.
We missed each other, and now we’re hungry for live performances and sharing our crazy energy with you! We have prepared a lot of cool things to please our fans. So, don’t miss it! We hug you and thank you for your support, see you soon! Your Death Pill”

It’s significant how many female punk bands are using the stance and attitude of the ‘Riot Grrl’ movement as a touchstone for what they are about, but it doesn’t end there. From the classic punk of Black Flag, The Distillers and Circle Jerks, to modern outfits like Axe Rash and the thrash metal of Nervosa and Exodus, there’s a nod to all of this in Death Pill’s visceral sound. Full on and fully formed.
‘Death Pill’ was released on limited edition white with red splatter vinyl housed in a full colour single sleeve with a printed lyric inner. Full download included. There is also be a limited CD version in a 4 panel digipack with a 12 page lyric booklet. It will also be available on all digital platforms.
